Severed Ear is dour and broody for he lost his ear together with his family and friends, when corrupted warlord lead his army across the lands and village where he lived, third son to the highborn village overseer magistrate. He survived the initial attack by being absent, venturing for a hunt with a lowborn friend, though his friend perished when they hurriedly returned, alarmed by the rising column of smoke. Severed Ear himself almost died that night, earning many scars, including his name-sake one.

Saved by Anata, he joined the Seven Young Fists for vengeance and stayed to bring justice to the lands wrecked by corruption, bandits, and monsters.

Anata is, in a sense the heart of the Seven Young Fists. A simple peasant born in masterless village, who stood up against bandits, defied a warmongering lordling's attempt to conscript him, and fought monsters with nothing but a pitchfork, never losing hope for justice and fairness. Ever cheerful and full of vitality, he expect the best in others and never gives less from himself. For all his valor and fairness, however, he remains a rural bumpkin, with poor grasp of manners, and little subtlety, often making some of his better-born companions cringe in shock and disbelief...

Capricious Shadow is flamboyant, insolent, blaze, distant, and unpredictable, as fitting his nekomimi heritage. Of all the Seven Young Fists, he is the most likely to take unsavory actions if he deems such necessary. Before joining the group, he was a thief—stealing more for the thrill than gain, gambling with the fortune over his livelihood and life, often picking corrupted magistrates and cruel aristocrats as his marks, although as he claims himself, there was no virtue in that, as there is little profit in stealing from the poor.

While he claims to be a villain himself, occasionally mocks matters such as honor or courage, and would not admit it, he is loyal to his companions and has a sense of honor that leads him to aid weak and downtrodden, preferably without their knowledge.

Resplendent Grace was an apprenticed to an assistant of a minor magistrate in a provincial city where she personally witnessed corruption of the civil administration and their consorting with criminals, rich, and powerful, to the detriment of the common people. It broke her faith in the law and the system and took her to the brink of corruption.

When the master Sour Wit was passing through the city with his students, the magistrate clique attempted to exhort a bribe from the vanara sifu, under the pretense of a licensing fee for an unathorized teaching of restricted techniques. This encounter opened Resplendant Grace's eyes to their vileness and she helped the old master and his young students outwit the greedy magistrates and use a number of legal loopholes to expose their corruption to the local governor.

She was reward with public commendation... And reassignment far away to avoid uncovering more dirt that would embarrass the governor further. She promptly resigned and joined the master Sour Wit and the slowly forming Seven Young Fists.

The third of the Seven Young Fists, is Fire Within, a martial-spirited inumimi maiden channeling the power of fire spirits to battle Evil wherever she goes. She is courageous, insist on defending people who she views as weaker than her from aggression, deeply compassionate, and yet, quite willing to strike down evildoers.

Fire Within lived in a secluded village as a child, where everyone expected her to become apprentice of a local shaman, but when it came to her coming of age ceremony, her valor, her willingness to protect other children, and her penchant to responding with violence to violence and using strength to solve problems marked her as favored of fire spirits, and convinced the village elders to send her away to serve as wandering defender instead. Soon after, she met master Sour Wit, and befriended his pupils and wards, joining future rag-tag band of virtuous champions of the people, later known as the Seven Young Fists.

Gruesome Diet (Ex) After a feast of a few handfuls of a humanoid meat, a flesh-eating horse can run for hours, ignoring a total of 1 point of damage from hustle and forced march per pound of humanoid flesh eaten.


Flesh-eating horses are magnificent but rare destriers, often considered to be a gift from gods (or fiends). They are excellent fighting mounts but they can be very dangerous to a careless or injured rider who cannot dominate them into submission as they will turn on their owner at the first hint of weakness.

Special Abilities


Innocuous Laughter (Su) A laughing kerkops can spend a mythic surge as a free action, forcing all sapient creatures that hear the laughter to make a Will saving throw (DC 16). Creatures that fail their save stop being hostile toward kerkops present for one round (and not treating the kerkops as an enemy for purpose of effects and attacks of opportunity) giving the kerkops the time to explain reasons for their laughter. If the kerkops provides reason that the affected creature finds genuinely amusing, the creature's attitude improves by two steps (until further changed by kerkops actions). The laughter is a mind-affecting sonic charm effect. Providing explanation for the laughter is language-dependent but the cessation of the hostility is not. The saving throw DC is Charisma-based.

Poking Stick A kerkops use elastic rod that inflicts nonlethal damage.

Swift Steal (Su) A kerkops can spend a mythic surge as a swift action to move up to its speed without provoking attacks of opportunity and attempt a single steal maneuver or Sleight Of Hand skill check at any point along the move.

Vulnerable To Bonds (Su) A captured and bound kerkops cannot free itself, it has to be released by the captor or another creature if left unattended by the captor.


Kerkopes (pl.) are mischievous but mostly harmless monkey-spirits that love to play tricks on other beings. They occasionally steal valuable or interesting items to hide them around the region they haunt. They are known to find many mundane things hilarious and their simple minded glee is often contagious, spreading to witnesses of their jests.
