So I am building an evil NPC for my ongoing hexcrawl, a death/spirit-focused Skald, and I'd like him to be the bossy guy who barks orders from behind and intimidates every PC who comes close. Problem is he needs to be around 5th level and I can't seem to find a way for him to intimidate as a move action. Any ideas?

The sagas of the Ulfen people are filled with stories of mighty warriors sailing south to raid the peoples of warmer climes and returning with longships filled with plunder. The Ulfen call these warriors vikings, and their deeds are sung in the longhouses during the long winter nights. A viking strikes fear into the heart of her foes, and in battle can fly into a terrible rage. Many vikings wear the pelts of bears or wolves, drawing on the strength and ferocity of these beasts in battle. Vikings do not wear heavy armor, but are skilled at fighting with an ax or spear in conjunction with a shield.
Fearsome (Ex): At 2nd level, a viking can make an Intimidate check to demoralize an opponent as a move action. At 10th level, she can do so as a swift action. At 18th level, she can demoralize a foe as a free action once per round. This ability replaces bravery.
