Confirmed Field Agent: Having successfully completed and documented your Conirmation, one of the Three Masters has formally recognized you as a ield agent and given you a wayfinder engraved with your name and the date of your graduation. If this is the first time you have received this boon for any of your characters, you receive this wayfinder for free; otherwise, you may acquire it by spending 1 Prestige Point. Furthermore, if you assign this Chronicle sheet to a character whose starting XP is 0, you reduce the Prestige Point cost of any wayfinder enhancement vanities you purchase to modify this wayfinder by 1 (minimum 1).
Explore, Report, Cooperate: You have an excellent sense of what makes an exemplary Pathfinder. As a free or immediate action, you may consider whether a particular action you name—such as subduing but not killing an enemy, befriending an NPC, or recovering a particular item—would help realise the goals of the Pathfinder Society. The GM then informs you whether the action’s impact would be positive (contributes to meeting a secondary success condition for the scenario), negative (opposes the secondary success condition), or negligible (neither contributes to nor opposes the secondary success condition). If none of these three options accurately reflects the action’s impact on the PC’s fulfilment of
the secondary success conditions, the GM may respond with a phrase of five words or less. Once you use this boon, cross it of your Chronicle sheet.
Friend of Janira Gavix: The field agent who oversaw your Confirmation is appreciative of your bravery and camaraderie in the face of danger. She helps you perform research, granting you a +1 bonus on Knowledge checks attempted while you are in the Grand Lodge.
Azlanti Wonders: While interviewing the Azlanti general Krahnaliara Lac Suhn, you learned the location of an Azlanti site that might have survived millennia or tragedy and looting. When you adventure in a ruin, archaeological site, or other structure that predates Earthfall (approximately 10,000 years ago, including more Azlanti and Thassilonian sites), you can cross this boon of your Chronicle sheet and choose two of the following: AC, attack rolls, saving throws, or skill checks. For the duration of the adventure while you are exploring the site, you gain a +1 insight bonus on the selected rolls or to your Armor Class.
Timelost Chronicler: You have journeyed through the ancient serpentfolk city of Sessegishoss and witnessed the fall of the Starstone, granting you a remarkable perspective of Golarion’s history. You gain a permanent +1 bonus on Knowledge (history) checks from your first-hand knowledge. Once per scenario you may call on the nascent power granted by your exposure to the falling Starstone to find inner greatness, granting you a +1 morale bonus to a single d20 roll.

Bot me:

Khellek doesn't do much in combat. First order is to identify resistances, immunities and weaknesses of creatures, followed by their special attacks. Other than that he mostly just uses inspire courage, spells to heal (or wand if spells are all used up) and failing all other things... fires Bessie his crossbow (no point blank shot or precise shot, so his chance of hitting is...not good).
