This animal is about the size of a small dog. Its fur is brownish-grey, and its bushy tail is ringed in black. Its paws and ears are black as well, and it has a black and white mask-like marking on its face. Raccoons are inquisitive and cunning, and often have strangely humanoid mannerisms, like washing their food in streams.

In combat a raccoon engages in an intimidating display of shrill growls, stamping feet, and puffed up fur. Raccoons have sharp, strong teeth and use them well if cornered.

Raccoons as Familiars
Raccoons can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. Arcane casters with raccoon familiars gain a +3 bonus to Sleight of Hand checks.
