About Trig Fanabarellalisa
Trig Fanabarellalisa is short even by gnome standards, barely cresting 3 feet tall. Her face is marred by worry lines due to a permanently settled scowl. Hair, the color of a dull lavender, hangs almost to the ground behind her with a solid white streak on the left side. When she casts spells, her eyes and hair shimmer in the white, and her teeth are impeccably clean.
Although rarely seen, Trig is never without her spirit animal: a cockroach. Cal often hides inside of Trig's armor, hair, and clothing, and stays out of sight.
Trig is a worrywort and an introvert. She can often be seen talking to herself, or at least it seems to other people; in truth she is talking to Cal, her spirit animal. Often times she is grumpy, especially to those she hasn't gotten to know or is outside of the family. Trig has learned how to fake politeness quite well, and often had to lie to get other members of her family out of trouble.
The Sczarni picked up Trig not long after she entered adulthood in Magnimar. Being raised as a Varisian despite being a Gnome, she had vouched for Sczarni after Sczarni to city guards and sheriffs when questioned as a witness if only so the questions would stop sooner rather than later. One of these families had noted her unwillingness to talk and brought her in. She had refused, of course, but they seemed willing to repay the favor and all she wanted was some peace. Working with them, it turned out she had a knack for not only talking to people, but as a healer, and they turned to her when they had minor injuries.
One night, a Sczarni came to her. He had injuries too dire for her to tend to, and she was about to send him away to the nearby church. Trig turned her back to him and saw it. A cockroach in her sterile equipment! Her perpetual scowl deepened until she noted that it was strange. It didn't scurry away as she approached, and it did nothing but stare. Slowly, she reached out towards it, uncomprehending. It crawled onto her finger and traveled up her arm. Understanding flooded her mind, flowed through her body. Her unwillingness to kill the strange insect sealed a pact and she found that she was not unwilling in that. Turning around, she said a few words and touched the Sczarni's back. His wounds stitched themselves back together under her hand. Elated, he ran off to tell the others, and after a moment of stunned silence at her newfound abilities, the sounds of combat came from the front of the house.
The city guards were at the Sczarni's doorstep. Perhaps someone had finally gone too far. Perhaps they were just tired of the thieves in their city. Knowing that Sandpoint wasn't too far away, she decided to go for the closest family she could get in with, one run by Jubrayl Vhiski. She hitched a ride, taking her new companion, the cockroach named Cal, to Sandpoint to set up shop.
Trig is mostly designed to heal and buff, taking damage for the team with (future) Life Link and Shield Other. She is also meant to do the talking thanks to her background lying to the guards for her Sczarni family. Later on, I hope to go into Wandering Spirits that increases her damage as well. Flame Spirit and fire vulnerability come to mind.

Spirit: A shaman forms a mystical bond with the spirits of the world. She forms a lasting bond with a single spirit, which grants a number of abilities and defines many of her other class features.
At 1st level, a shaman gains the spirit ability granted by her chosen spirit. She adds the spells granted by that spirit to the list of spells that she can cast using spirit magic. She also adds the hexes possessed by that spirit to the list of hexes that she can use with the hex and wandering hex class features.
At 8th level, the shaman gains the abilities listed in the greater version of her selected spirit. At 16th level, the shaman gains the abilities listed for the true version of her selected spirit.
If the shaman takes levels in another class that grants a mystery (such as the oracle), the spirit and mystery must match, even if that means one of them must change. Subject to GM discretion, the shaman can change her former mystery or spirit to make them conform.
Spirit Ability Channel (Su) (1d6, 4/day, 13 Will save DC)
Life Link (Su): The shaman creates a bond between herself and another creature within 30 feet. Each round at the start of the shaman’s turn, if the bonded creature is wounded for 5 or more hit points below its maximum hit points, it heals 5 hit points and the shaman takes 5 points of damage. The shaman can have one bond active per shaman level. The bond continues until the bonded creature dies, the shaman dies, the distance between her and the bonded creature exceeds 100 feet, or the shaman ends it as an immediate action. If the shaman has multiple bonds active, she can end as many as she wants with the same immediate action.
