Handler (Rogue)

Quicker than the Eye (Ex): At 2nd level, a handler develops an amazingly swift and delicate touch. When she uses Sleight of Hand, creatures take a penalty on their Perception checks to notice the attempt equal to half the handler’s class level. The handler also subtracts her class level from the normal –20 penalty when attempting to make a Sleight of Hand check as a move action instead of as a standard action. Lastly, the handler can withdraw an object hidden on her person, including a weapon, as a move action instead of the usual standard action. This ability replaces the rogue talent gained at 2nd level.

Filch (Ex): At 4th level, a handler learns how pluck items off her opponents even in combat. She gains Improved Steal as a bonus feat and can use her Sleight of Hand bonus instead of her CMB when performing a steal combat maneuver. If the handler gains bonuses on combat maneuver checks from any feats, spells, magic items, or similar effects, they are added to the Sleight of Hand bonus when using the steal maneuver. This ability replaces uncanny dodge.

Superior Filching (Ex): At 8th level, a handler becomes a master at separating owners from their property. She gains Greater Steal as a bonus feat, and opponents do not gain a +5 bonus to their CMD when she tries to remove items fastened to them. This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.
