Bonus Languages: A druid's bonus language options include Sylvan, the language of woodland creatures. This choice is in addition to the bonus languages available to the character because of her race. A druid also knows Druidic, a secret language known only to druids, which she learns upon becoming a 1st-level druid. Druidic is a free language for a druid; that is, she knows it in addition to her regular allotment of languages and it doesn't take up a language slot. Druids are forbidden to teach this language to nondruids. Druidic has its own alphabet.

Shriikirri Nature Bond, Weather Domain (Ex):
Domain Spells: Obscuring Mist (1)

Storm Burst (Sp): As a standard action, you can create a storm burst targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The storm burst deals 1d6 points of nonlethal damage + 1 point for every two cleric levels you possess. In addition, the target is buffeted by winds and rain, causing it to take a –2 penalty on attack rolls for 1 round. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Studied Target (Ex): At 1st level, a nature fang gains the slayer's studied target class feature. At 5th level and every 5 levels thereafter, the nature fang's bonus against her studied target increases by 1. Unlike a slayer, a nature fang does not gain the ability to maintain more than one studied target at the same time. This ability replaces nature sense, wild empathy, and woodland stride.

AC Bonus (Ex): When unarmored and unencumbered, the monk adds his Wisdom bonus (if any) to his AC and his CMD. In addition, a monk gains a +1 bonus to AC and CMD at 4th level. This bonus increases by 1 for every four monk levels thereafter, up to a maximum of +5 at 20th level. These bonuses to AC apply even against touch attacks or when the monk is flat-footed. He loses these bonuses when he is immobilized or helpless, when he wears any armor, when he carries a shield, or when he carries a medium or heavy load.

Flurry of Blows (Ex): Starting at 1st level, a zen archer can make a flurry of blows as a full-attack action, but only when using a bow (even though it is a ranged weapon). He may not make a flurry of blows with his unarmed attacks or any other weapons. A zen archer does not apply his Strength bonus on damage rolls made with flurry of blows unless he is using a composite bow with a Strength rating. A zen archer's flurry of blows otherwise functions as normal for a monk of his level. A zen archer cannot use Rapid Shot or Manyshot when making a flurry of blows with his bow.

Unarmed Strike 1d6: At 1st level, a monk gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat. A monk's attacks may be with fist, elbows, knees, and feet. This means that a monk may make unarmed strikes with his hands full. There is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a monk striking unarmed. A monk may thus apply his full Strength bonus on damage rolls for all his unarmed strikes. Usually a monk's unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but he can choose to deal nonlethal damage instead with no penalty on his attack roll. He has the same choice to deal lethal or nonlethal damage while grappling. A monk's unarmed strike is treated as both a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons.

Bonus Feat: Precise Shot (1), Point-blank Shot (2)

Perfect Strike (Ex): At 1st level, a zen archer gains Perfect Strike as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet the prerequisites. A zen archer can use Perfect Strike with any bow. At 10th level, the monk can roll his attack roll three times and take the highest result. If one of these rolls is a critical threat, the monk must choose one of his other two rolls to use as his confirmation roll. This ability replaces Stunning Fist.

Way of the Bow, Weapon Focus Longbow (Ex): At 2nd level, a zen archer gains Weapon Focus as a bonus feat with one type of bow. At 6th level, the monk gains Weapon Specialization with the same weapon as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet the prerequisites. This ability replaces evasion.

About Rokan:
Height 5’ 10” Weight 174 lbs
Skin dark suntanned Head shaved, tattooed Eyes dark brown

Rokan is average height for a shoanti, with a look of general athleticism that is common among the clansmen. There are subtle but unmistakeable tells—a slight point to his ears, a tilt to his eyes, a thinness of form—that hint at elvish blood mixed in his Shoanti blood. He’s not a particularly handsome young man, and his usual stony expression causes many to find him hard to approach. His dark eyes have a look of intelligence and seem to miss little, a hawk’s eyes. He dresses in traditional hunter’s garb: well-worn and layered leathers and skins, good for maneuverability and adapting to the northern Lost’s Coast’s unpredictable weather. And where many of his upland clansmen carry large weapons for dealing with their larger foes, Rokan carries a few simple weapons. A dagger, a club, and a bow.

Core personality traits: focused and competitive. Strong-willed and stubborn. Reliable, disciplined, and practical.

Motivation: live up to his responsibility to protect his people and their way of life, especially in the face of the recently exaggerated giant threat. He desires to prove that he is fully Shoanti, despite his elven heritage. Rokan doesn’t like to lose, and is often motivated by a spirit of competitiveness by itself.

Background: From the moment of his birth, Rokan was marked for a unique path. As the son of an elf-blooded father whom he never knew, his life would always be marked by the turn of his eyes and the peaks on his ears. But more uniquely, it came in the form of a birthmark starting on his left cheek and wrapping up around his dark eye and onto his pate. Simplistic hawks, firepelts, and other spirit animals of the Shriikirri—of his people—wove a complex pattern across his face and head. The tribe—despite the mixed blood of his mother—celebrated this blessed omen.

As he grew, there was little physically that made him stand out. He was athletic, but not among the strongest, or the fastest, or the best with weapons. But he did have one thing … an absolute refusal to fail. When he and the other boys learned weapons, his small frame made him an easy opponent for the larger boys. They would knock him down. And knock him down. And knock him down. He always got up, and he grew tough, physically and mentally.

Where he struggled to distinguish himself as a warrior, he developed a strong affinity for the old stories and old ways. A connection with the spirits of the Shriikirri … of his people’s land, sky, and animals. He heard their whispers in the night and their songs in the thundering storms. The elders noticed and began training the young boy in the ways of their shamans. He became a student of the shoanti quah’s … their stories, their customs, everything.

So he grew into a young Shoanti man, always striving to rise above his mixed blood that set him apart from his friends and rivals. While the other young men were further training with weapons or for the various Shoanti tribal vocations, he was learning the history of his people. The power of his heritage, and how his people and their ways were tied to the land in a way few peoples can claim. For while many people live in the powerful, majestic Lost Coast, only the people of the tribes were a part of its lifeblood. Like the trees, the rivers, the stones, clouds, and every creature. This is what the Shriikirri shamans exist for … to maintain the balance of all things in the Lost Coast.

His training and naturally sharp senses made him a natural hunter and guide, skills he put to good use at the instruction of the elders.

Then word came from the Shriikirri Seers. In their usual mysterious ways, they saw in the clouds and heard on the winds that a trouble was rising like a great storm. A shaman meeting was called, and Rokan—an apprentice—was tasked with helping. When they arrived at the meeting place—late, due to some late spring weather—they arrived on an eery scene. Where were the other shamans? Signs of people were about—tent stakes, hoof prints, and … blood. Before Rokan, Markov, and their shaman could react, the giants were on them. This was not a fight to win, but a fight to survive. Rokan does’t know who from his party survived, but the moment of Markov’s death is seared in his memory.

Rokan reacted like any young Shriikirri would. He wanted to hunt, to repay blood for blood. His elders, however, had other intentions. Word must go out. The clans must be warned. They must be united to counter whatever this new threat was.

Rokan prepared to ride out. His orders, however, were not what he expected. Instead of being ordered to the other tribes, or even the others clans, Rokan was ordered to send word in an unexpected direction. To a small southern-coastal town called Sandpoint. “Warn Belor. Recruit his help, whatever the cost.”

On the Road to Sandpoint: Rokan, despite his many bluntly-voiced objections—was given the responsibility of warning Hemlock of the giant threat, and doing whatever is necessary to recruit Sandpoint—and its many resources—to the effort against the giant threat. He chafes at being sent to recruit a Shoanti who has turned his back on his people's ways. He chafes at being sent south—away from the hunt—while his clansmen take the warpath towards the giants. He chafes at the warrior they sent with him. And he chafes at the knowledge that he was sent because the Elders knew he would carry out his responsibility even when he wanted to do the opposite.


What's a personal item they always have with them that means a lot to them, sentimentally? Why? What's the story there?
Three items: an old arrowhead on a thong around his neck, a small straw-and-leather Shoanti doll, and a beautifully-wrought bow that is broken to uselessness.

The arrowhead is that of the arrow with which he brought down his first quarry. There was nothing particularly unique about the creature–a highland stone tusk–other than it was the first he tracked, killed, dressed, and brought home all by himself. The doll belonged to Markov’s (see below, important people) daughter. She had given it to Markov—ya know, cause daughter thought dolly could protect daddy—before Markov came to meet Rokan for the meeting of the shaman’s. When Markov and Rokan were sent south, giant scouts attacked. Markov was killed. Torn between wanting to get Markov’s body back to his family and needing to fulfill his task, he took the doll. He’s not sure why. He can barely bring himself to look at it, but won’t give it up until he can give Markov’s family the news personally. The bow was also taken from Markov’s body. It was a particularly well-made bow—one part weapon and one part work of art, with carvings of swooping, hunting hawks running its length. It was shattered when Markov was killed, and Rokan couldn’t bear to see it that way. He hopes to have it remade whole.

What do they do to relax or kill time on a day where there's no enemies threatening?
When Rokan has free time—or when he needs to think—he likes to go hiking or hunting. He feels at home among the Lost Coast wilds in a way that grounds him. The constant mental demands of survival and navigation lets him push his troubles to the back of his mind, where his subconscious can work on them. He also finds comfort in the discipline of practicing with his bow. He finds focus in the smooth, repetitive actions, and feels comfort in knowing every practice shot brings him one step closer to being the best.

Which of the seven sins would be most tempting to them?
Pride. Rokan is focused, competitive, and ambitious. Since his birth–marked by his celebrated Shoanti birthmark–he's seen himself as set apart for something unique. He has a pride in himself that extends to a pride in the history and ways of his people. He takes himself seriously and expects others to do so, as well. Inversely, he constantly fights a struggle to be overly concerned with how people perceive him.

What person in their life is most important to them? Why?
Rokan has a number of important people in his life. Family and friends. But one notable person is (was) Markov Wind-Steps, a fellow shaman apprentice who was one part mentor and one part friend. Kind of like an older brother or cousin, though they shared no blood. Markov and Rokan trained under the same Shrikiiri shamans, though Markov was six years older than Rokan. While the Markov wasn’t officially Rokar’s trainer, he taught the young Rokar many, many lessons about being a Shriikirri, a hunter, and a man. When Markov died after the massacre—killed by giant raiders while they were both trying to make it to Sandpoint—Rokan was heartbroken.

What's their strongest memory of childhood?
Two sets of memories stand out in his memory (though one is not really from childhood). Rokan’s proudest moments as a child were when he successfully hunted his first quarry (mentioned above), and when he passed the Shriikirri rites of manhood, earning his first tattoo, his name, and his place among the warriors and hunters of his people. The second memory that stands out was the massacre at what was to be the shaman meeting-place.

Have they ever killed an intelligent creature before, directly or indirectly, self-defense or otherwise? More than once? How do they feel about this?
Rokan has hunted all his life, but he’s only been directly involved in the killing of intelligent creatures recently … giants. He views it as warfare and cultural defense. He’s got no qualms with it; protecting his people is one of his guiding stars.

Where would they like to be in ten years? Do they envision a farm and family, a thriving trade, service to a church? What does their 'happily ever after' look like? 'They don't yet know' is a valid answer.
While Rokan doesn’t see himself as any kind of leader of men, he dreams of taking his rightful place as a prominent shaman among he Shriikirri. He only cares for money as far as it advances that goal.

What flaw(s) would they say they have? What flaw(s) would you say they have?
Rokan knows he doesn’t make friends easily. He knows he’s often unsympathetic towards others, and he knows he struggles with patience. I know the reason he rubs people wrong is because he’s blunt and pragmatic by nature, more concerned with results than making people feel good about themselves. And he expects much from himself, and gets annoyed with people who don’t work hard to rise to challenges (or people that complain about circumstances). This impatience goes back to his disciplined, competitive nature. And he does pretty much believe the Shoanti ways are the best ways.
