Development notes: Ral’s effective druid level is considered 3 less for purposes of Storm’s animal companion abilities and extra hit dice. As Ral is 6th level, Storm has the extra hit dice and special abilities of a 3rd level druid’s animal companion.
Storm is an extremely large and strong-looking wolf that was found in a cage in the wild of Xen’drik. Imprisoned by the kobolds that managed to capture her, she somehow forged a connection with Ral and drew him to her through a mysterious dream, having him free her from captivity. She chose to journey with Ral for a while, feeling a certain kindred with him.
In time, Ral forged a permanent bond with Storm and she became a true animal companion. Their mysterious bond seems stronger than ever, especially since Ral has discovered his ability to shift into a dreamtouched state and access a deeper personality within himself. When he does so, Ral’s mindset shifts to become harder and more stern, while Storm’s changes to make her kinder and more understanding. Storm and Ral’s minds are more closely bonded now, and their connection allows Ral to dream as normal humans do, through her mind.
