Investigators uncover secrets and sift truth from lies. This often places investigators on the side of the law, but when the powers that be are corrupt, investigators might find themselves labeled vigilantes or ostracized. Yet they aren’t easily discouraged, and can become relentless foes.

Special Abilities

Banish the Paranormal (Su) As a move action, the paranormal investigator can spend 1 Resolve Point to imbue a weapon they’re wielding with mysterious power for 1 minute. The weapon gains one of the following fusions: anarchic, axiomatic, charge disrupting, ghost killer, holy, limning, or unholy.
Elucidate (Su) As a full action, the paranormal investigator can share their knowledge about one incorporeal creature, outsider, or undead they’ve identified, granting their allies within 60 feet a +1 insight bonus to AC and attack rolls against creatures of that kind for 1 minute.
Paranormal Scholar (Ex) The paranormal investigator gains a +4 bonus to identify and recall knowledge about incorporeal creatures, outsiders, planes, and undead.


Paranormal investigators study, confront, and banish that which doesn’t belong in the galaxy, including extraplanar beings, souls that refuse to pass on, and most undead. Most paranormal investigators are made, not born, their lives disrupted by the paranormal or occult. This makes many indifferent to the desires and plights of their targets—a “good” or “benevolent” intruder is no different than one who’s actively harmful to them.
