About Shaedeen M. Valzanar
Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level, a rogue can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If she succeeds at a 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.

Ranged light crossbow +5 (1d8 piercing/19-20) or sling +5 (1d4 bludgeoning)
Special Attacks sneak attack +1d6; Dirty Fighter +1 damage when flanking
Sneak Attack +1d6:
Sneak Attack: If a rogue can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from her attack, she can strike a vital spot for extra damage.
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 f lanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 at 1st level, and increases by 1d6 every 2 rogue levels thereafter. Ranged attacks can count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet. This additional damage is precision damage and is not multiplied on a critical hit.
With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (such as a sap, unarmed strike, or whip), 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 total concealment.

Finesse Training (Ex): At 1st level, a rogue gains Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat. In addition, starting at 3rd level, she can select any one type of weapon that can be used with Weapon Finesse (such as rapiers or daggers). Once this choice is made, it cannot be changed. Whenever she makes a successful melee attack with the selected weapon, she adds her Dexterity modifier instead of her Strength modifier to the damage roll. If any effect would prevent the rogue from adding her Strength modifier to the damage roll, she does not add her Dexterity modifier. The rogue can select a second weapon at 11th level and a third at 19th level.
Trapfinding: A rogue adds 1/2 her level on Perception checks to locate traps and on Disable Device checks (minimum +1). A rogue can use Disable Device to disarm magic traps.
Rogue Talent (Trap Spotter):
Trap Spotter (Ex): (PRPG Core Rulebook pg. 69): Whenever a rogue with this talent comes within 10 feet of a trap, she receives an immediate Perception skill check to notice the trap. This check should be made in secret by the GM.

Appearance Shaedeen’s a pretty thing with short black hair, expressive emerald eyes, pouty lips, and fine facial bone structure. In loose clothing she seems rather scrawny, but in snug clothing (which she prefers) her frame appears lithe.
Personality Acerbic, snarky, and a bit mean-spirited, Shaedeen hasn’t had a true friend since her family left Cheliax for their fateful visit to Magnimar. When shown proper respect or when her ego is stroked, the young woman’s a lot easier to be around. Her short stint with the Tower Girls has instilled a fierce desire for material possessions and status symbols in the young rogue.
Fortunately, Shaedeen had made a few other acquaintances amongst Magnimar’s Sczarni populace. One fellow offered to sneak her out of the city on a ship and Shaedeen jumped at the opportunity…even though she’d never been on a ship before.
Brief Sample Post The journey south from Magnimar aboard the Throaty Mermaid had taken its toll on poor Shaedeen, who suffered bout after bout of seasickness, losing weight and turning even paler than her normal milky complexion. A few of the male crew members had tried to comfort her but Shae rebuffed their attempts, suspicious that the eager men’s motives were more salacious than sympathetic.
Now that she’s finally got her sea legs, the pretty teen has ventured out of her hammock and is sniffing about for the ship’s galley.
