Command Skeletons (Su) Tsutamu has a unique bond to the skeletons found in Brinestump Marsh. He can command their actions as a free action via telepathy as long as they’re within line of sight. If Tsutamu is destroyed, the other skeletons immediately collapse to the ground as well, for it is the samurai’s will that keeps them animated.
Order (Ex) Tsutamu’s order is ronin. Whenever Tsutamu is the target of a challenge by another samurai or cavalier and he issues a challenge against that character in return, he receives a +1 bonus on attack rolls made against the target of his challenge and a +1 dodge bonus to AC against
attacks made by the target of his challenge.
Resolve (Ex) Once per day, whenever Tsutamu is required to make a Fortitude or Will save, he can take an immediate action to roll twice and take the better result. He must decide to use this ability before he rolls the saving throw.
Self Reliant (Ex) Whenever Tsutamu fails a Will save against an
effect with a duration greater than 1 round, he can attempt
another saving throw at the end of the second round of the
effect. If he makes this saving throw, it has the same effect as
if he had made the original save.
A grizzled samurai who had accompanied the Amatatsu family over the Crown of the World.
Soon after his people took shelter within Brinestump Caverns after becoming shipwrecked on the way to Sandpoint, they discovered to their horror that the cave was the lair of a tribe of monsters. The crew was devastated by the creatures’ attack, but Tsutamu was overcome by a righteous anger. Even as the rest of the survivors were slain, he managed to kill all of the creatures. Yet, as the fight ended and his rage gave way to shame at having so failed his employer and his comrades, Tsutamu took his own life in the dark caves, and his corpse and restless spirit have remained within for decades.
