- Slight Build: the physical stature of fisher lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category smaller. Whenever a fisher is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as Hide), the fisher is treated as one size smaller if doing so is advantageous to the character. A fisher is also considered to be one size smaller when "squeezing" through a restrictive space. A fisher can still use weapons designed for a medium creature.
