Racer (Companion Archetype)

Some companions have uncanny speed, providing their masters with swift transport.

Animal Feats

In addition to the standard animal companion feats, a racer may select Acrobatic Steps, Charge Through, Improved Lightning Reflexes, Lightning Stance, Nimble Moves, and Wind Stance.

Fast Movement (Ex)

A racer’s speed is 10 feet greater than typical animals of its kind when wearing no armor and carrying a light load.

This ability replaces share spells.

Sprint (Ex)

At 6th level, once per hour a racer can move at 10 times its normal speed when it makes a charge or uses the run action.

This ability replaces devotion.

Unofficial Errata Ahead!

Wait a minute… Cavalier mounts don’t get the share spells companion ability! Does this mean my cavaliers mount can not gain this archetype?

Companion archetypes (especially the Charger archetype) were intended to be available to cavalier’s mounts.

A cavalier’s mount should therefore be treated as having the share spells feature for the purpose of qualifying for animal archetypes.
