During Combat Aerys prefers to fight with her fists—a tactic
at which she’s remarkably talented, using Power Attack
unless faced by a foe that’s particularly hard to hit.
Morale Aerys flees if reduced to 4 hit points or less, unless
she’s helpful and a PC is in peril, in which case she’ll defend
the PC with her life.

Alcoholic (Ex) Aerys is an alcoholic—each day she’s forced to
go without a drink, she is sickened.
Appearance: Aerys is a trim, athletic
woman with short dark hair, tanned
skin, and fierce blue eyes. She dresses
in tightly fitted leather armor and
favors dark clothing and tricorn hats.
Personality: Aerys knew from earliest
childhood that she wanted to captain her own
ship—it didn’t matter whether as merchant,
navy, or pirate. Yet as she grew into adulthood as a
woman of rare beauty, she discovered that achieving
her dream in such a male-dominated profession would
be more difficult than she’d hoped. She downplays
her beauty when she can and is quick to mock or even
assault anyone who makes flirtatious overtures toward
her. She’s recently taken to dulling her anger and
frustrations with alcohol.
Aerys confesses that she wants to kick her
drinking habit and asks for help in doing so. A remove
disease spell will cure her. She’s heard that viper nettle
berries can help to hasten recovery, though, and asks the
PCs to scour Smuggler’s Shiv to find a supply of this rare

Anyone who reads it for 8 hours gains a permanent +1 bonus on all Will saving throws against compulsion effects.
