Laughing Hyena
The Youxia's Handbook
For some, combat is a means to an end. For laughing hyenas, combat is how they feel alive. Passionate warriors who are always pushing their limits, they care less about protecting their allies than they care about proving their worth by defeating their opponents both physically and emotionally.

Combat Training

A laughing hyena may combine combat spheres and talents to create powerful martial techniques. Laughing hyenas are considered Expert practitioners and use Charisma as their practitioner modifier. Additionally, any sentinel class features that previously used the laughing hyena’s Wisdom modifier now uses their Charisma modifier.

This ability alters combat training.

Laughing Warrior

A laughing hyena must select the Gladiator sphere as their martial talent gained at 1st level. If they already possess the Gladiator sphere, they may select any talent as normal.

Rocksteady (Ex)

At 2nd level, a laughing hyena gains a +2 circumstance bonus to their CMD against creatures they have demoralized. At 12th level, this bonus increases to +4.

This ability replaces guard wall.

Taunt Coward (Ex)

At 4th level, whenever a creature that has been challenged by the laughing hyena makes an attack that does not include the laughing hyena as a target, the laughing hyena may perform a boast as an immediate action.

This ability replaces sentinel’s imposition.

Braggart’s Recovery (Ex)

At 6th level, when a laughing hyena performs a boast, they may activate their second wind class feature as part of the same action, spending a reserve point as normal.

This ability replaces counter critical.
