    Ghostwise Halfling is a nod to the fact that Link never speaks. It's just something I thought would be funny.

    I built link as fighter for his combat skills, bard for the ocarina music (and healing hymn is basically the song of healing), horizon walker for the long distances he travels, and occult slayer because they get to reflect spells back at the caster and to reflect Link's training for his battle with Ganondorf.

    His spells are mainly for aiding and befriending others, something that has to reflect the songs that accomplish this across the game. Improvisation reflects the high amount of luck Link sometimes has.

    I know Link's alignment should probably be NG, but this was the only way of shoving in a fairy companion. And some of Link's deeds are straight-out unlawful, especially those of his younger self. (Sneaking into palaces comes to mind)

    Link travels with two companions. Tatl, a fairy, and Epona, his horse. Stats for these will be provided later on in this post.

    Spell-Like Abilities: At will—dancing lights, detect evil, detect magic, faerie fire; 3/day—magic missile, sleep (DC 13). Caster level 4th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

    Alternate Form (Su): A coure can assume the form of an incorporeal ball of light at will. This transformation counts as a standard action. In this form, the coure can be harmed only by other incorporeal creatures, +1 or better magic weapons, spells, spell-like abilities, and supernatural abilities. In this form, the coure has a 50% chance to ignore any damage from a corporeal source, except for force effects or attacks made with ghost touch weapons. A coure in this form can pass through solid objects, but not force effects, at will. While incorporeal, its attacks ignore natural armor, armor, and shields, but deflection bonuses and force effects work normally against them. In this form, a coure always moves silently and cannot be heard with Listen checks if it doesn't wish to be. While incorporeal, the coure sheds light if it wishes, providing illumination with any radius it wishes up to 30 feet. Changing the amount of light it sheds is a free action that the coure can perform once per round.

    Magic Circle against Evil (Su): A magic circle against evil effect always surrounds the coure, as the magic circle against evil spell cast by an 8th-level sorcerer. (The defensive benefits of the circle are not included in the statistics above.)

    Skills: Coures have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks (included in the statistics above).
