Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Pink Panther.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Light armor, but no weapons.
Unintentional Evasion: Add CHA modifier to AC
Change of Luck: (1/2 Pink Panther lvl + CHA modifier) times per day you can change a critical fail into a natural (crit) 20.
Critical Failure: You can roll a critical fail on a 1-2. At 6th lvl it goes up to 1-3, at 11th lvl 1-4, & at 16th lvl 1-5.
Jinx: Every time you critical fail you have a chance to affect (DM discretion) an enemy as well. Call high/low and have the DM roll percentile dice. At lvl 1 the range you want to fall into is the lower or higher 20%. If you fail the call your failure affects an ally instead. At 6th lvl the range changes to low or high 30%, at 11th lvl low or high 40%, and at 16th lvl low or high 50% (AKA 50-50).
Animosity: Whenever you affect someone with a critical failure you have a chance to alienate (DM discretion) them. Call high/low and have the DM roll percentile dice. At lvl 1 the range you want to fall into is the lower or higher 20%. If you fail the call animosity takes affect. At 6th lvl the range changes to low or high 30%, at 11th lvl low or high 40%, and at 16th lvl low or high 50% (AKA 50-50).
Kato: You have a companion whose name is Kato. They are a 1st lvl monk and can be anything that fits that class. They are immune to animosity. For every level you gain from here on Kato also gains a lvl so they are always 4 lvls below you.
Clouseaus: Once per day per Pink Panther level, a Pink Panther can use his questionable insight and the chaos that surrounds him to produce magical effects on those around him (usually including himself, if desired). The requirements for each effect are written in its description.
If a Pink Panther multi-classes, gains an evil alignment, or gains more than 10 ranks in Profession (Inspector) they lose their Change of Luck & Jinx ability as well as their companion, Kato.

Pink Panthers in the World
|“||Ah yes, that would be for ME.||”|
|—Chief Inspector Clouseau, Human, Pink Panther|
Pink Panthers tend to be hodgepodge inspectors (with other callings) who find themselves in all sorts of variable situations.
Daily Life: Roaming about doing whatever it is their job requires. Visiting disguise shops and training.
Notables: Chief Inspector Clouseau
Organizations: Pink Panthers don't tend to congregate and are usually found in other groupings or alone.
NPC Reactions: Lots of confusion and general befuddlement are the basic reactions to a Pink Panther. However, because of the mass amount of chaos that follows them unwittingly, sometimes a NPC who has been affected by it badly will very quickly have a bad impression ranging to hatred of a Pink Panther. On the other hand, if the chaos is helpful to an NPC they will very quickly have a good impression ranging to love of a Pink Panther.
