Not really much to say about this one. I'm pretty sure the ability scores are going to draw some attention, at least. I did this because Lucarios are strong and quick, but also intelligent. Instead of just straight up giving it a +1 to strength, dexterity and intelligence/wisdom, I figured I'd let the player mix and match as they chose to make things interesting.

The mention of a Lucario with red fur is a reference to it's alternate colors in Pokken tournament. Aura Sphere is pretty much Lucario's signature move, so I couldn't help but try to add something like it to the race. I gave it a 1.5 due to it technically being a cantrip, but it can only be used once per short rest. Because of that one tiny caveat, I'm not sure if it should be reduced to a 1, but I'll leave it at 1.5 for now.

Last is Aura Sight. Not sure if this should have a range or not (it probably should), but I'm not sure what would be a good range. Either way, it gets a 1 for now. --MetalShadowOverlord (talk) 17:58, 5 May 2018 (MDT)

Edit: Looks like Aura Sight is getting a 0.5 with a range of 60 ft. Also Aura Sphere gets a 1 since it's basically a Dragonborn's breath attack but with force damage. Thanks to ConcealedLight for the help with these.
