Hrawk are gifted in that they may pursue any class. Naturally nimble and streetwise, most Hrawk find careers as rogues or bards, and occasionally as fighters, barbarians or even rangers (excelling in the urban environment, they make wonderful investigators and bounty hunters). Rarely, a Hrawk will adopt the religion of the surrounding races and become a cleric, paladin or inquisitor (Hrawk have been known to adopt abandoned shrines and temples, protecting the forgotten holy ground ferociously), but more common are Hrawk sorcerers and Hrawk oracles who contemplate the stars and the mysteries of existence. Hrawk alchemists, monks, wizards and summoners are rare and usually have to apprentice themselves to human mentors for their training.
