|Description||The bond between a trainer or owner and animal can transcend the master/pet relationship. It may become deeper with more of an emotional connection between the two. This bond allows the animal to grow in intelligence and exceed its natural capabilities.|
|Requirements||Train Animal ability|
To awaken an animal, the animal must win a contest of wills. The master or owner decides when to attempt to awaken the animal, but the animal must have enough advancement picks to acquire this ability.
Normally, an animal acts only on instinct or on commands from its master. This ability allows an animal companion to act independently and receive orders similar to a PC.
This ability cannot be retried. The the animal fails the Contest of Wills, it can never be awakened.
