Demon Familiar in a Fast, PFS-friendly Way?


Advice


So, my daughter has a PFS-legal tiefling (played before the cut off date) and she's already rebuilt her, but still wasn't happy. Now, she's a got 3 chronicles, so this is her last chance to rebuild.
She wanted to make her into a fiendish vessel (from the Advanced Race Guide), but that's not Society legal. Her main reason for this was the desire for the demon familiar (which shows up at 3rd level).
Is there a way to get a legitimate demon familiar (not just a fiendish animal, but actually an imp, quasit, cacodaemon, etc.) at 3rd level in any other way? She was already a summoner and didn't really care for it, so just a demonic-looking eidolon is not what she wants.
Improved familiar is nice, but leaves her waiting until 7th level before she actually gets what she wants. Is there some other way I'm not aware of? Please? Help? Anyone?

That'd be the most PFS way of doing it, but you don't get the imp till 7.

The answer is going to be no, I'm afraid. Those creatures are all CR2 in their own right, getting one at level 3 is beyond what any class is supposed to have unless that's it's total focus, and no class focuses on outsider companions other than summoner, but that's not really an imp, quasit, etc.

You'll have to have her wait until 7th level or play a summoner. Best case scenario is to flavor it similar to the Chosen One archetype: it was really an imp all along, but it had to pretend to be an animal for some reason, such as to keep others off her scent until she was strong enough to hold her own.

Sounds like the antipaladin's version of the chosen one archetype. I wish they would make that.


Okay. I was figuring it wasn't all that doable. The infernal binder is a neat idea. Of course, if she does that, it means it would be flat out silly to take improved familiar before 7th level since she gets it for free. Of course, hijacking other casters' summoned beasties sounds rather fantastic. Situationally, at least.
