Fey Hero

There is one class that embodies all that it is to be fey, and that is the fey hero. It offers the most well-rounded selection of magical, combat and skill-based power available to the fey. The hero is a generalist, but he is also a paragon for the common fey, capable of many things, and useful in nearly every situation. A fey hero is a character brimming with ability. Hero is always considered a favored class for fey.

Abilities: As a Dexterity-based adventurer, a hero would benefit from putting his best score in Dex. Charisma is useful for fey spellcasters, and so a hero should also focus on it. Finally, a hero needs to have his wits about him, so he should also have a high Wisdom and Intelligence. Constitution and Strength are the least important to a hero.
