About Theophilus Carter

Description:
"Why is a raven like a writing desk?"

Theo wears a large top hat with a hatband reading "In this style 10/6". This is the hat's price tag, indicative of his trade, and giving the price in pre-decimal British money as ten shillings and six pence (or half a guinea).

He dresses in flamboyant, but impeccable finery. The color combinations seem to be just off; from his brown suede top coat to his black and grey pinstripped pants to his multi-colored socks;and from his bird and flower printed ruffled shirt to his bright orange-dyed mop of hair. The style also seems just late of fashion.

He has a constant big grin that doesn't always match his expressive and piercing blue eyes.

Theo stands just under 6' and weighs roughly 170 lbs.

His current state of lucidity depends upon the moment...

Prompt:
The slow, tortuous bead of perspiration sluggishly slides down his scruffy cheek; easily eager to erase any sense of his self-confidence. Lifting his top hat, he swipes his coated arm across his temples. A small victory. Replacing the hat, he leans warily upon a broken, ruined fence. His ragged breath matching his appearance, the lone gentleman warily watches as the murderous fog creeps ever closer. Glancing furtively at the indifferent sky, his faded blue eyes reflect a hopelessness that his body begins to agree with. The tapping, tapping, tapping of hidden feet impress upon him a resolution to this ordeal. The choices for survival having been lessen by the moment, he peers intently at the two roads before him.
Alas, it seems they finally found me!, he whispers to the fog. With a sudden change of resolve, the lanky gentleman doffs his top hat at the ghastly fog.
Not yet, not yet!, he defiantly announces, as he stumbles up the hill....

Automatic Bonus Progression

Class:
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Witches are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor interferes with a witch’s gestures, which can cause her spells with somatic components to fail.

Spells: A witch casts arcane spells drawn from the witch spell list. A witch must choose and prepare her spells ahead of time.

To learn or cast a spell, a witch must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a witch’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the witch’s Intelligence modifier.

A witch can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Her base daily spell allotment is given on Table 2–10. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Intelligence score (see Table 1–3 of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook).

A witch may know any number of spells. She must choose and prepare her spells ahead of time by getting 8 hours of sleep and spending 1 hour communing with her familiar. While communing, the witch decides which spells to prepare.

Cantrips: Witches can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day, as noted on Table 2–10 under “Spells per Day.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again. Cantrips prepared using other spell slots, due to metamagic feats for example, are expended normally.

Hex: Witches learn a number of magic tricks, called hexes, that grant them powers or weaken foes. At 1st level, a witch gains one hex of her choice. She gains an additional hex at 2nd level and for every 2 levels attained after 2nd level, as noted on Table 2–10. A witch cannot select an individual hex more than once.

Unless otherwise noted, using a hex is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The save to resist a hex is equal to 10 + 1/2 the witch’s level + the witch’s Intelligence modifier.

Hexes:

Healing* (Su)

A witch can soothe the wounds of those she touches.
Effect: This acts as a cure light wounds spell, using the witch’s caster level. Once a creature has benefited from the healing hex, it cannot benefit from it again for 24 hours. At 5th level, this hex acts like cure moderate wounds.
Section 15: Copyright Notice

Flight* (Su)
The witch grows lighter as she gains power, eventually gaining the ability to fly.

Effect: At 1st level, the witch can use feather fall at will and gains a +4 racial bonus on Swim checks. At 3rd level, she can cast levitate once per day. At 5th level, she can fly, as per the spell, for a number of minutes per day equal to her level. These minutes do not need to be consecutive, but they must be spent in 1-minute increments. This hex only affects the witch.

Cackle (Su) (Advanced Player's Guide pg. 66 (Amazon)): A witch can cackle madly as a move action. Any creature that is within 30 feet that is under the effects of an agony hex, charm hex, evil eye hex, fortune hex, or misfortune hex caused by the witch has the duration of that hex extended by 1 round.

Evil Eye (Su) (Advanced Player's Guide pg. 66 (Amazon)): The witch can cause doubt to creep into the mind of a foe within 30 feet that she can see. The target takes a –2 penalty on one of the following (witch's choice): AC, ability checks, attack rolls, saving throws, or skill checks. This hex lasts for a number of rounds equal to 3 + the witch's Intelligence modifier. A Will save reduces this to just 1 round. This is a mind-affecting effect. At 8th level the penalty increases to –4.

Misfortune (Su) (Advanced Player's Guide pg. 66 (Amazon)): The witch can cause a creature within 30 feet to suffer grave misfortune for 1 round. Anytime the creature makes an ability check, attack roll, saving throw, or skill check, it must roll twice and take the worse result. A Will save negates this hex. At 8th level and 16th level, the duration of this hex is extended by 1 round. This hex affects all rolls the target must make while it lasts. Whether or not the save is successful, a creature cannot be the target of this hex again for 1 day.

Fortune (Su)
Effect: The witch can grant a creature within 30 feet a bit of good luck for 1 round. The target can call upon this good luck once per round, allowing him to reroll any ability check, attack roll, saving throw, or skill check, taking the better result. He must decide to use this ability before the first roll is made. At 8th level and 16th level, the duration of this hex is extended by 1 round. Once a creature has benefited from the fortune hex, it cannot benefit from it again for 24 hours.

Feats:

REPORT AD
You can make a second attempt at failed hexes.

Prerequisites: Hex class feature

Benefit: When you target a creature with a hex that cannot target the same creature more than once per day, and that creature succeeds at its saving throw against the hex’s effect, you can target the creature with the same hex a second time before the end of your next turn. If the second attempt fails, you can make no further attempts to target that creature with the same hex for 1 day.

Normal: You can only target a creature with these hexes once per day.

Traits:
Twitchy: Your first thought upon awaking in the asylum isn’t confusion over why you can’t remember anything clearly—it’s
a sudden urge to find safety. You feel like everything around you, aside from your companions, might threaten you and you’re always ready to react. You have a hard time staying still, and you’re constantly surveying your surroundings. Maybe you are paranoid, or maybe it’s just an overactive imagination, but whatever it is, you know that keeping these feelings honed will help you stay alive. You gain a +2 trait bonus on initiative checks and a +1 trait bonus on Reflex saves.

Seeker

Source Ultimate Campaign pg. 61 (Amazon)
You are always on the lookout for reward and danger. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Perception checks, and Perception is always a class skill for you.

Diabolical Dabbler
REPORT AD
Benefit: Each fiendish animal you conjure with any summon spell gains +1 hit point per hit die for the duration of the spell that summoned it.

Fey Thoughts
Source Heroes of the Wild pg. 5 (Amazon)
The character sees the world more like a native of the First World. Select two of the following skills: Acrobatics, Bluff, Climb, Diplomacy, Disguise, Escape Artist, Fly, Knowledge (nature), Perception, Perform, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand,Stealth, Swim, or Use Magic Device. The selected skills are always class skills for the character.

A dwarf can take this trait in place of hatred. An elf, gnome, or half-orc can take this trait in place of racial weapon familiarity. A half-elf can take this trait in place of multitalented. A half ling can take it in place of fearless. In the case of humans, this trait replaces the skilled trait (and the human also gains fey magic and low-light vision, as detailed in Fey Magic, above).

Fey Magic
Source Heroes of the Wild pg. 5 (Amazon)
The character has a mystic connection to one terrain type, selected from the ranger’s favored terrain list. The character selects three 0-level druid spells and one 1st-level druid spell. If the character has a Charisma score of 11 or higher, when in the selected terrain, she gains these spells as spell-like abilities that can be cast once per day. The caster level for these effects is equal to the user’s character level. The DC for the spelllike abilities is equal to 10 + the spell’s level + the user’s Charisma modifier. These spells are treated as being from a fey source for the purposes of the druid’s resist nature’s lure class feature and similar abilities.

A dwarf can take this trait in place of greed and stonecunning. An elf, half-elf, or half ling can take this trait in place of keen senses. A gnome can take this trait in place of obsessive. A half-orc can take it in place of orc ferocity. A human can take it in place of skilled. A human who replaces skilled with fey magic also gains fey thoughts and low-light vision.
