I have a Chosen one Paladin of Shelyn in the party of my current Rise of the Runelords game. He has a Rabbit as his emissary(because it is one of Shelyn's sacred animals even though people usually think of birds for her). Any way when a chosen one becomes 7th(Party is currently 4th) they get to upgrade their emissary as per improved familiar. This player really likes the aesthetic and idea of his rabbit at the moment and he selected ahead of time that when he becomes 7th that an Agathion, Silvanshee would be the best pick for a Paladin of Shelyn with Redemption being a big part of her profile. But I wonder if I can't change or create an Agathion that is a rabbit instead of a cat both to keep the aesthetic and maybe tool it a little more to what an emissary is designed for by changing it's SLA's to be more suited for getting into and out of the combats to better use lay on paws and guidance and than get back to safety since rabbits aren't know for their bravery but are territorial and community driven. Also some fun fluff would be that it likes to eat even though as an outsider it doesn't need to, but like a real rabbit it has a fast "metabolism" and if not doing something constructive it eats out of boredom.

Anywho would like some suggestions as far as stats and abilities. It is easy enough to leave everything a Silvanshee has and just call it a rabbit but I would prefer a few better thematic choices. Like maybe having Expeditious Retreat a few times a day instead of Dimension door 1/day. Maybe have a reroll on Init to reflect rabbits ability to quickly react to danger? IDK Suggestions open.


You can make it have a +4/8 racial bonus on perception, due to its long ears and hyperactivity.

That is a pretty good idea. Any suggestions for swaps to its SLA's or Monster abilities?

Honestly in looking at it, the Silvanshee stats fit a rabbit theme better than a cat. The dimension door can have a 'through the rabbit hole' vibe. Cats have an association with luck, but rabbits even more so.

Heroic Strength and Spectral Mist don't have a particular 'rabbit vibe' but I don't see them as being totally cat focused either.

Spectral Mist is pretty powerful, I'd probably consider a multiple times per day (5 to match the mist?) mirror image effect. Sort of the multiply like rabbits theme.

Heroic Strength substituted for a 1/day self only haste seems like an ok trade and fits the rabbit speed theme.


Give it a burrow speed.

If you want to be silly make it that you can make 4 lucky charms from a deceased rabbit agathion.

The idea of haste instead of the Str buff is actually really nice, and fits a rabbit way more I like it. The mirror image idea is also cute. Maybe a displacement or blur effect would be more thematic in the same vein tho. Kind of like Pikachu using double team or agility in the anime.

I have some good ideas I will try and work up a stat block tonight and share it for those interested.


I like the ideas, I assume for another enhanced familiar type. Of course you are setting yourself up as a target for Pookas don't you know. How dare you even think they have a need to outsource mystic bunnyhood to the celestials of all things. Say hi to Carrot for me.
