History

Ibis has always been fascinated by human beings and observed them hiding among the branches of the trees, thanks to the fact that her senses can work remotely. Not long ago he began to understand the sense of the sounds these strange creatures emitted and this has even increased his curiosity, with the desire to actually live among them.

Design notes: Basically The Wise Owl of the Forest (RoP: Magic p.65) modified (a lot). I could not resist and copied the idea of Grant Minor Virtue (Improved Characteristics) power from Quite Possibly a Cat. XP count: 360 + 15 in Penetration (from Immobilize Prey) + 5 in Concentration (from Improved Powers virtue) = 380xp . After the publication in the wiki I changed the Minor Virtue (Self-Confidence) Quality with Improved Confidence.
