Kittelic (3.5e Racial Paragon Class)
From D&D Wiki
Only those who find great pleasure in hinding and attacking from the shadows yet enjoy a game of cat and mouse may be considered a Kittelic Paragon. Living within the shadows and seeking the weak spots of their opponent, they find no dishonor and taking advantage of an opponent who left their guard down. Forgoing all light except the light born of the night, they become phantoms, the monsters of the stories that elven parents tell their children when they refuse to sleep, the heros of kittelic fables. To become an elite stalker whose stealth is second to noone's is the dream of kittelars.
Kittelic Paragons often adventure of curiousity. Driven by a need to check anything that is shiny, they will travel upon a moment's notice, though properly requesting permission from their clan before taking their leave of absence. They will travel as far as they can by night, keeping track of time by the moon's phase and sleeping through the day. Once they've met their hearts worth in adventure or grow how sick, they turn about, traveling by night and sleeping through again back home. Other reasons that a Kittelic Paragon include duties to their clan and quests given by their (usually dead) ancestors.
Though misunderstood and sterotyped as acting primarily upon whim and lacking any honor, Kittelic Paragons are honorbound warriors that serve their clans without a second thought. Putting the clan before their one cares or worries. They will put down their lives for the clan if needed. However that doesn't mean they live up to their notorious natures of being sexaully driven. However, as all kittelars, they are not afraid to fight their battles as long as they fight them from their terms. Resorting to stealth, not from lack of courage, but from careful thinking.
They often curious, a kittelic paragon doesn't allow their curiousity come before the duty to their clan. Like a true kittelar, they oten refuse to be either good or evil, for it will draw away from the responsibilities of their clan.
A Kittelic Paragon lives by night thus finds loyalty towards the Lunar Trinity. Choosing to worship no single of the three moon gods, yet them all as a whole, the kittelic paragon lives fastly to these beliefs and often refuse to worship another diety.
Kittelic paragons grow up thinking that stealth is the key to victory in any battle and train endless on this belief, honing their instincts and skills to the point that they blend seemlessly with the shadows.
Kittelic Paragons suffer no more less than any other kittelar when it comes to multi-racial relations. Though they share much of intrests with a halflings, with such curious natures and nimble fingers, but it seems halflings are more trusted by some reason. They still admired elves, greatly and are as distrusted by elves aswell.
Kittelic Paragons get along well with other combat or stealth driven classes such a fighters and rogues, both able to enjoy a good fight and have sense enough to fight it from behind cover. Though not as fond of magic users, they understand they serve their place and will coexists with them if the those spellcasters choose to coexist in the first place.
