C is for Cat

Somehow this post was taken down. Not sure why, but I'm not happy about it. Here's the repost.

Yeah, I'm one of those people that spends hours on the internet looking at cat pictures and watching cat videos. Judge if you like. I'm cool with it. I found this picture a few months ago and even posted about it. You can buy a set of the armor here.

I'm a children's librarian, so it seems appropriate that C is for Cat...

The Claw

Everyone in the city has heard of the Claw. His name is only whispered in hushed tones though, for no one wishes to gain the attention of the thieves guild.

What few know about the claw is that he's a cat.

Sure he's a telepathic cat that's the physical manifestation of a god, but still he's just a cat.

The god of rogues is capricious and cunning. He's also quite mischievous  It's probably for this reason that he has a attraction to felines.

No one is quite sure why he granted the former thieves guild master, Zar, an intelligent cat. Zar named the creature Kithkin and it soon became the guild's mascot and good luck charm. When Zar passed on to the afterlife he named Kithkin as his successor. None of Zar's lieutenants objected to this, though a few feared that the knowledge that a cat was guild master might entice their enemies to attack.

For this reason the persona of the vicious Claw was created. Only the inner circle of the guild that the guild's mascot is actually a criminal mastermind.

Armor Class: 5 (while wearing specially made leather armor)
Hit Dice: 2
HP: 9
Move: 180' (60')
Attacks: 2 claws + 1 Bite
Damage: 1-2/1-2/1
Save As: Thief 4
Morale: 11
Alignment: Neutrel

Kithkin has the following Thief abilities: Move Silently 90, Climb Sheer Surfaces 90, Hide in Shadows 90, Hear Noise 1-5. She also gains a +4 to attack and deals double damage when striking unnoticed.  If using Lamentations of the Flame Princess, assume she has the following Specialist abilities: Climb (5 in 6), Search (2 in 6), Sneak Attack (2 in 6), Stealth (5 in 6).

Kithkin can communicate telepathically with any intelligent creature within 60'.

Kithkin has nine lives. If he is killed he will spontaneously resurrect in the nearest temple of the god of thieves. Being a physical manifestation of the god of thieves, Kithkin can be bared as a holy symbol by followers of his god.
