Some are deformed at birth, others have been horribly disfigured by accident or disease, but all are visibly marked in ways that others find disturbing and frightening. Accepted by the church, the pariah has devoted himself to serving those that gave his life meaning and provided for him when the rest of the world shunned him. It is worth noting that not all religions that take in pariahs are goodly aligned – neutral and evil religions have their own uses for outcasts and are more than happy to foster feelings of loyalty in them.

Benefits: The pariah receives a +2 circumstance bonus to all Intimidate checks due to his frightening visage or cursed nature.

Penalties: Despite the pariah’s best efforts, the rest of the world still looks upon him with fear and revulsion. The Pariah receives a -2 circumstance bonus to all Bluff, Diplomacy and Sense Motive checks.
