Pet Lover[edit]

You spent much of your time training a small beast to companionship for company and help in certain situations. While not as close to your pet as a best master to theirs, you love your pet and will keep it safe and in return it helps you here and there.


Skill Proficiencies: Perception and Animal handling.

Tool Proficiencies: None

Languages: One of your choice

Equipment: 10 days rations designed for your pet, and a whistle to call them.

Pet Choices[edit]

What pet do you own?

Feature: Well Trained[edit]

While you cannot ask your pet to fight, there are small things it can help out with, such as bringing you items small enough for it to carry with ease, or be a simple distraction. If your pet dies you can spend 24 hours (or 12 long rest worth of downtime) to train one of the pet choices that is friendly to you.
