Intellectual[edit]

An elf, wise in the laws of the universe, chases the panther to the trees where it jumps quickly to the top, thinking its escaped. The panther turns to see that the elf is gone, as she reappears swinging into view and kicks the panther out the tree.

A halfling working on his construction, finishes and snaps his fingers. Luminous blue eyes flicker open and it begins to move.

Intelectuals use their knowledge to fight in combat and defend there allies. Their form of knowledge comes in varied and interesting ways.
