This is a small sized anthropomorphized cat that has excellent music and conversational skills. They were little known as an intelligent felines on the mortal planes, but when some found their way to Candyland, their unique skill set made them a wonderful companion to the visitors to the otherworld. They now reside mostly in the Candyland, most as plump and pampered pets, but they have strong skill sets and are incredibly loyal to the cause of hunting out enemies in the fae-lands. Many wear very nice boots, a stylized hat along with a rapier.

While there are no undead in Candyland, there are many otherworld creatures, which is best defined as anything that is in the Candylands that is not asleep. Those that are sleeping, come by Mother Goose's sleep gates and have agreed (knowingly or not) to the rules and conditions. Those that have physically traveled here have not, and can get into all kinds of mischief. These Fiddling Cats have been blessed and they can use music to ward off otherworldly creatures. They must warn the creatures that they are being bothersome or unwanted, then if the unwanted do not depart or stop as they are being asked, the cat can fiddle to ward them away.

Turn / Ward Living: The Will DC is 10 + 1/2 HD + your Charisma modifier. This normally works for 3 rounds + 1 round / charisma bonus. If the creatures affected does not immediately leave, they suffer -3 on all subsequent saving throws, skill checks or attack rolls for double the amount of time they would feel the affects. Fiddling cats can turn for 5 + charisma modifier / day.
