Smilodon (Empathic Bond)

Bonding Requirements

Some amount of courage is required, as is obvious from the bond failure message:

You sense that the saber-toothed dull orange tiger feels you to be too cowardly to share a
bond with.

Known Abilities

The smilodon, found in the cold wastes of the Northlands, is very physically powerful, and has significant resistance to mundane damage, which improves as the familiar gains experience. They are very large, sometimes over 30 dimins in length, and have immense claws and a powerful bite. They have some degree of night vision, breathe air and have a carnivorous diet. They make excellent, if unorthodox, mounts.

Attribute Modifications

The smilodon grants its consort a very large bonus to strength (augmented by the Muladhara chakra even further), large bonuses to vitality and willpower, and a moderate bonus to agility.

Muladhara Chakra

A smilodon familiar automatically grants and charges the Muladhara (red) chakra, which grants bonuses to strength, massive exertion, massive blow and brawling. It also confers a large amount of the Thanatogalvanism trait, so it can be a mixed blessing.

Petting the familiar

You pet Gnash with your right claw.
You sense mighty energies flowing from Gnash's body into your spirit.

This provides a temporary boost to several skills, including crushing resistance, cutting resistance, piercing resistance, armour use, and possibly others.
