About Tooth and Claw

Tooth and Claw hunt.
Tooth and Claw fight.
Tooth and Claw kill.
Society gold is good, yes?

background:
"Me is from Kwanlai. Very beautiful place. Me taken to Wanshou when still very young. Wanshou very bad place. Me slave in rice paddies. Then me taken by wako. Sail on seas. Me lucky, wako say. Me wash up on island, far away, after ship wrecked. Lucky me. Island was Mediogalti. Me find Claw. Me find God. Red Mantis not let me in though. Stupid Red Mantis. Me show them! Me kill for Society now. Also, me Mayor of Ravenmoor! Me also Baron. Me have medal!"

dragons slain:
1: a large green terror-dragon on the Isle of Terror. 2: Horralydax, a large white dragon in the Tusk Mountains. 3: a huge linnorm, newly awakened from slumber. 4: a treacherous brine dragon on the elemental plane of water. 4.5: a half-dragon cyclops in a cave in Brevoy.

Bot me!:

Tooth and Claw are very much a double act. Aim to flank enemies together and take them apart.

One the first round of combat Tooth will probably cast Mirror Image or Lead Blades, depending on perceived threat. If facing an enemy with significant DR (other than DR/slashing) cast versatile weapon instead. After that, get into flank.

Tooth has the Sudden Shift domain power, and Claw has the Sudden Shift skirmisher trick (a swift action), so between the two of them if they can reach a target they should be able to flank it by using these abilities.

Claw will use Grab and Tangling Attack to disable an enemy, whilst Tooth power attacks using either his bardiche or double sawtooth sabres as appropriate.

In an emergency, Tooth can ride on Claw, to get away or to fire arrows down on enemies.

Tooth & Claw will typically use Vermin Focus (Ant) in every combat, but use other focus abilities when appropriate or more advantageous. Claw's vermin focus will be switched to Leech on the round he maintains a grapple, to cause bleed damage.

vermin focus:
At 1st level, a verminous hunter can take on the aspect of a vermin as a swift action. She must select one type of vermin to emulate, gaining a bonus or special ability based on the type of vermin emulated and her hunter level. The hunter can use this ability for a number of minutes per day equal to her level. This duration does not need to be consecutive, but must be spent in 1-minute increments. The hunter can emulate only one vermin at a time.

The hunter can also apply one of these aspects to her vermin companion. Unlike with the hunter herself, there is no duration on the vermin aspect applied to her vermin companion. An aspect applied in this way does not count against the hunter’s minutes of duration per day—it remains in effect until the hunter changes it. The companion’s aspect can be the same aspect the hunter has taken on or a different one. The hunter can select or change the vermin foci on both herself and her vermin companion as part of the same swift action.

If the hunter’s vermin companion is dead, the hunter can apply her companion’s vermin focus to herself instead of her companion. This is in addition to the normal one she can choose, and (as with a companion’s focus) remains in effect until the hunter changes it instead of counting against her minutes per day.
