You instinctively react to interfere with foes that attack your allies or innocents.
Prerequisite(s): Combat Reflexes
Benefit(s): Whenever an opponent you threaten makes an attack against a helpless, prone, or stunned ally or any attack against a noncombatant, that opponent provokes an attack of opportunity from you. If your attack of opportunity hits your foe, she takes a – 4 penalty on the attack roll that provoked this attack of opportunity.
Note If using the optional Stamina Pool rules, the following trick may be used with this feat.
Combat Trick: When an opponent provokes an attack of opportunity from you as a result of the Intrepid Rescuer feat, if your attack of opportunity hits, you can spend 5 stamina points to cause the opponent’s attack to automatically miss your ally.
