Mythic Hero Monday: Mythic Natty Bumppo

By Andrew Hoskins

Natty Bumppo
Though the man is as pale as the men from across the sea, he dresses in the native fashion and wears his hair long and flowing. His soft brown eyes reflect a sort of kindness as they survey all they can see.

Natty Bumppo, also known as Nathanial Poe and Hawkeye, was adopted at a very young age. He grew up among the natives of his familiar forest land, though is ethnically a human from across the sea. Over the years he became a fearless warrior, and is skilled with many weapons. When finally he learned to use the musket, he earned the name Hawkeye for his precision.

Natty only hunts what he needs to survive, and believes it should only take one shot to take down a target. He is fiercely loyal to his companions and friends; he would gladly give up his life for any of them.

*Please note this NPC has been created under the assumption of the commonplace firearms frequency as presented in the Pathfinder rules set.
