Alertness (Ex) While Mudak is unsummoned or within arm’s reach, Marna gains the Alertness feat.
Deliver Touch Spells (Su) Sokhatyy can deliver touch spells for Marna. If Marna and Sokhatyy are in contact at the time she casts a touch spell, she can designate Sokhatyy as the “toucher”. Sokhatyy can then deliver the touch spell just as Marna.
Elemental Whispers (Su) Marna has formed an (adversarial) partnership with a fragment of her element, sent by her patron and acting as a familiar. As a full-round action she can give the elemental partner a physical form. Mudak does not usually physically fight but takes actions as a normal animal of its type, and it can move any distance away from Marna, though if it is “killed” it returns to Marna’s mind and cannot be summoned for an hour. Mudak gains abilities as usual for a familiar, though it never gains the ability to speak with animals of its kind.
Empathic Link (Su) Marna has an empathic link with Sokhatyy to a 1 mile distance. She can communicate empathically with Sokhatyy, but cannot see through its eyes. Because of the link’s limited nature, only general emotions can be shared. Marna has the same connection to an item or place that Sokhatyy does.
Improved Evasion (Ex) When subjected to an attack that normally allows a Reflex saving throw for half damage, Sokhatyy takes no damage if it makes a successful saving throw and half damage even if the saving throw fails.
Share Spells Marna may cast a spell with a target of “You” on Sokhatyy (as a touch spell) instead of on herself. Marna may cast spells on Sokhatyy even if the spells do not normally affect creatures of its type (magical beast).
Speak with Master (Ex) Sokhatyy and Marna can communicate verbally as if they were using a common language. Other creatures do not understand the communication without magical help.
Spell Resistance (Ex) Mudak gains spell resistance equal to Marna’s witch and kineticist levels + 5. To affect Mudak with a spell, another spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check that equals or exceeds Mudak’s spell resistance.
Marna’s adolescence contained a bright spot, in the midst of brutal witch training and dark pacts with outsiders: she nursed an injured elk calf to health and it bonded with her, at the suggestion of her tutors. The Sisters of the Nithing Pole knew they could not provide warm, comforting family in the midst of their harsh training, and the girl needed something since losing her entire village to reavers. A good compromise was to allow her this relationship.
She named him Cохатый (Sokhatyy). Unfortunately, he is now possessed by a servant of her patron, named Мудак (Mudak). She dislikes Mudak for subsuming her pet’s personality.
