Gyros the Chosen (Centaur Ranger, Pathfinder CR 17)

Gyros  is named the Chosen by his herd as Arrisa the Nymph has given him a lock of her  hair (an Inspiration (Su) +4 will save, +4 craft and perform and constant status spell on carrier) this has gained him a lot of respect from the herd, and a bit of jealousy from some of the young bucks . He is a very handsome Centaur, with chestnut brown hair and eyes. He has a charming sense of humor and a quick wit. Gyros also has a good singling voice, and will often be heard singing while walking through the forest.

Gyros has taken responsibility to protect Arrisa and her glade  from harm, this has now put him, and his herd, in direct conflict with the local lord, who has recently been given permission to log the whole  forest by the king. The King urgently needs wood for a large ship building project.

Gyros tactics in a battle are, after buffing,  to keep at a distance and shoot from cover, using his shot on the run, speed, and the seeking ability of his bow to take shots when only the smallest glimpse of the target can be seen and he is in almost total concealment and good cover. He will cast entangle if multiple targets  present themselves. If he is seriously injured he will retreat back to Arrisa’s glade to get healed.
