| Beast must always respect master, is way of things.
Master takes care of beast, beast takes care of master.
Oona is a bugbear beastmistress living in a village near Kraagor's Tomb. Amongst her pets are her worg Greyview and a yrthak named Lancer. She has a philosophy of a bond of respect between the master and beast, with the master taking care of the beast and the beast taking care of the master.
She and Lancer fought the paladins O-Chul and Lien during their trek across the Gelid Glacier. (The paladins escaped under the ice using Lien's ring of water breathing, tricking Oona into thinking that they were dead.) Oona accompanied Team Evil on its forays into the myriad dungeons of Kraagor's Tomb. She is familiar with the tombs; the village subsists in part on resources gathered by raiding the tombs and then waiting for the monsters to respawn.
Personality and Traits Edit
Oona is only a casual follower of the Dark One; she feels that Goblins and Hobgoblins get preferential treatment by their god, leaving Bugbears and other lesser known goblinoids with the "short end of the stick".
She is one of the few people to know the Monster in the Darkness's true species, having taken a peek under its umbrella when Team Evil arrived at her village. She calls the MitD a "magnificent monster".
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Beast Heart Adept: the Beast Heart Adept prestige class, published in the 2007 D&D 3.5 supplment Dungeonscape would grant ability to have animal companions of the power of Lancer and Greyview. That book was co-written by Order of the Stick author Rich Burlew.
- Beastmaster: an alternate theory not strictly upheld by the rules is that she has levels in the Beastmaster prestige class. Beastmaster, published in the 2005 D&D 3.5 supplement Complete Adventurer allows for multiple animal companions. However they are limited to the list available to 1st level druid, which would preclude the ythrack Lancer. It should be noted, however, that she refers to herself as a "beastmistress" and to "beasts" and "masters".
