Quarrels Toolkas Harris

Lawful Good adult male Ratfolk Trapper Freebooter Ranger 1 / Feather Domain Evangelist Cleric 6

Leadership Cohort

Henrietta the Helpful

Lawful Good adult female Ratfolk Holy Tactician Paladin (of Erastil) 3 / Order of the Dragon Honor Guard Cavalier 2

Henrietta often wonders if she became a Paladin simply because she has so much trouble saying no to any request for help. She had traveled to Katapesh to seek some guidance from a larger church of Erastil than was available at home. When she heard that her old flame, Quarrels, was also in town she decided to follow him. After all, the Ratfolk gossip said he was now a famous hero and one of the saviors and leaders of the town of Kelmerene—perhaps her helpful nature could be more wisely used by focusing on what this group of traveling adventurers was doing.

Henrietta maintains the theme of Quarrels being the party's buffer, animal handler, skill monkey, and assistant scout.

With a modified Handle Animal skill of ten a character can "Take 10" to Combat Train an INT 2 animal. This teaches it the tricks attack (DC 20), come (DC 15), defend (DC 20), down (DC 15), guard (DC 20), and heel (DC 15). This fills up the limit of tricks. An animal companion gets bonus tricks for which no Handle Animal skill check is needed: start with attack and fetch.
