Looks:
At five feet six inches, Amhranai is short for an elf. Black hair, riddled with ringlets and waves falls to her shoulders when unbound, framing a plain-looking face that is pale and nearly gray in color. Across her forehead and stretching to the tip of her nose is a dark-colored tattoo she earned from a tribe of Wild Elves. Amhranai makes little effort to hide this marking, much to the disdain of her fellow Moon elves. Almond-shaped eyes of shifting colors rarely rest in one spot for too long, taking in all they can. Dark circles around those eyes belie her poor sleeping habits

A breastplate of blackened mithril covers Amhranai's wiry frame, devoid of decoration. At her throat is a plain silver symbol of Iscandu. Myriad scars cover her callused hands, hands that are surprisingly clean.

  • Keen Senses: Elves receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception skill checks.
  • Low-Light Vision

CLASS ABILITIES

Cleric:
  • Cleric
  • Aura of Chaos
  • Channel Positive Energy: 4d6
  • Domain: Healing (Restoration)
    Restorative Touch (Su): You can touch a creature, letting the healing power of your deity flow through you to relieve the creature of a minor condition. Your touch can remove the dazed, fatigued, shaken, sickened, or staggered condition. You choose which condition is removed. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
    Healer's Blessing (Su): At 6th level, all of your cure spells are treated as if they were empowered, increasing the amount of damage healed by half (+50%). This does not apply to damage dealt to undead with a cure spell. This does not stack with the Empower Spell metamagic feat.
    Domain Spells: 1st—Cure Light Wounds, 2nd—Remove Disease, 3rd—Cure Serious Wounds, 4th—Neutralize Poison, 5th—Break Enchantment, 6th—Heal, 7th—Regenerate, 8th—Mass Cure Critical Wounds, 9th—Mass Heal
  • Domain: Trickery (Thievery) — You are a master of illusions and deceptions. Bluff, Disguise, and Stealth are class skills.
    Copycat (Sp): You can create an illusory double of yourself as a move action. This double functions as a single Mirror Image and lasts for a number of rounds equal to your cleric level, or until the illusory duplicate is dispelled or destroyed. You can have no more than one copycat at a time. This ability does not stack with the Mirror Image spell. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
    Thief of the Gods (Su): At 8th level, when you make a Disable Device or Sleight of Hand check, you can roll twice and take the higher result. Using this ability is a free action. You can use this ability once per day at 8th level, plus one additional time per day for every 2 levels beyond 8th.[/ooc]
    Domain Spells: 1st—Disguise Self, 2nd—Invisibility, 3rd—Locate Object, 4th—Confusion, 5th—False Vision, 6th—Mislead, 7th—Ethereal Jaunt, 8th—Mass Invisibility, 9th—Time Stop
  • Orisons

Rogue:
  • Rogue
  • Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level and higher, a rogue can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If she makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the rogue is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless rogue does not gain the benefit of evasion.
  • Rogue Talent: Fast Stealth A rogue with this ability can cause living opponents to bleed by hitting them with a sneak attack. This attack causes the target to take 1 additional point of damage each round for each die of the rogue's sneak attack (e.g., 4d6 equals 4 points of bleed). Bleeding creatures take that amount of damage every round at the start of each of their turns. The bleeding can be stopped by a DC 15 Heal check or the application of any effect that heals hit point damage. Bleeding damage from this ability does not stack with itself. Bleeding damage bypasses any damage reduction the creature might possess.
  • Rogue Talent: Fast Stealth This ability allows a rogue to move at full speed using the Stealth skill without penalty.
  • Rogue Talent: Finesse Rogue A rogue that selects this talent gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat.
  • Rogue Talent: Slow Reactions Opponents damaged by the rogue's sneak attack can't make attacks of opportunity for 1 round.
  • Sneak Attack: The rogue's attack deals extra damage anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the rogue flanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every two rogue levels thereafter. Should the rogue score a critical hit with a sneak attack, this extra damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet.
    With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (like a sap, whip, or an unarmed strike), a rogue can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. She cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, not even with the usual –4 penalty.
    The rogue must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. A rogue cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment.
  • Trap Sense: At 3rd level, a rogue gains an intuitive sense that alerts her to danger from traps, giving her a +1 bonus on Reflex saves made to avoid traps and a +1 dodge bonus to AC against attacks made by traps. These bonuses rise to +2 when the rogue reaches 6th level, to +3 when she reaches 9th level, to +4 when she reaches 12th level, to +5 at 15th, and to +6 at 18th level.
  • Trapfinding: A rogue adds 1/2 her level to Perception skill checks made to locate traps and to Disable Device skill checks (minimum +1). A rogue can use Disable Device to disarm magic traps.
  • Uncanny Dodge: Starting at 4th level, a rogue can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does she lose her Dex bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. She still loses her Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A rogue with this ability can still lose her Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action (see Combat) against her.
  • Uncanny Dodge, Improved: A rogue of 8th level or higher can no longer be flanked. This defense denies another rogue the ability to sneak attack the character by flanking her, unless the attacker has at least four more rogue levels than the target does.

  • Headband:
    Phylactery of Positive Channeling (+2d6 damage/healing when channeling positive energy)
  • Eyes:
    — Tribal Magic Tattoo: (Su:) Once per day, you may re-roll a single saving throw. You may take the better result, but must declare its use before you know if you have succeeded or failed. You also gain a +1 Luck bonus on saves vs. negative energy and death effects. Concealing the tattoos with cosmetics, a mask, or the like negates the Luck bonus. Wearing another magic item in this slot completely suppresses the tattoo's magic until that item it is removed.

    (Ex:) You gain a +2 Circumstance bonus on Diplomacy, Intimidate, and Wild Empathy checks made to adjust the starting attitude of those who are attuned to nature or see themselves as uncivilized (animals, druids, fey, primitive peoples, etc.). You also take a -2 Circumstance penalty on the same checks against those who deem themselves civilized. The Circumstance modifiers apply only so long as the party you are attempting to influence can perceive the tattoos.

BACKGROUND

History:
Amhranai spent much of her younger years shadowing her mother, who was the local healer. During this time, she learned a large variety of healing methods magical and non- magical in nature, the greatest of which, according to her mother, derived from the realm of dreams that Iscandu ruled. Dreaming allowed the mind to heal itself of the usually more serious psychological damage incurred with physical sicknesses and injuries.

As the places they traveled grew more dangerous, the need for self defense and self reliance became more and more apparent. Learning what she could from various sources, Amhranai learned that, although she would never be able to wield the large blades so many others employed, or charge headlong into battle, sickles, knives and daggers suited her fine. Subterfuge was her ally, agility and speed her greatest weapons.

By the time her first century of life had passed, Amhranai knew it was time to strike out on her own. After some years spent wandering, she found herself conscripted into the navy, her healing services in high demand. Serving in various campaigns, she honed her crafts and broadened her horizons. Some would say she broadened her horizons too far with the tattoos she received as a mark of honor from a tribe of Wild Elves, but she wears them as a badge of honor. Now in Ilmarond, Amhranai seeks to move on from the military after 30 long years. There are many who are not sorry to see her leave, but those that know her best realize the loss they will endure.

Personality:
Normally quiet and reserved, Amhranai is given to bouts of dry humor highlighted with scathing remarks. She constantly studies her surroundings; to the point of seeming to ignore those speaking to her, but the habit is so ingrained that she hardly notices the effect this has until someone points it out. After many years spent healing the sick and wounded, with varying degrees of success, Amhranai has come to feel haunted by the myriad faces she has seen come and go. Despondence over this, as well as the approach of her two-hundredth year, has become an increasing threat to her overall well-being, an affliction she hopes to remedy by leaving the military.
