Groom

Groom - Traits

I have worked with horses my whole life. From training to cleaning them I have learned the skills needed to take care of horses and other mounts.

When did I start working with mounts? Do I know how to ride one myself?

Prized Mount

Players

You are an animal lover, but occasionally one animal stands above all others in your mind. When you are focused on an animal like this you gain rapport with them at twice the normal rate. You may only be focused on one animal at a time.

NPCs

Grooms have a favorite mount that they have trained with for years. They know this mount inside and out. The two act as one in combat and will gladly die to defend each other. Any attempt to harm or steal the mount will bring the full wrath of the groom down upon you.
