Amethyst is a pug, Pearl is a Greyhound, and Garnet is a Standard Poodle.
…I didn’t even have to edit the design at all for her, look at this:

This post was inspired by emlan who draws lots of doges.

We just debuted the Pathfinder RPG’s newest iconic character, Shardra, the iconic shaman (a member of one of the new classes in the Advanced Class Guide). She’s the character we at Paizo will be using as our stand-in for shaman players in art, pregenerated characters, miniatures, stories, etc, going forward. She’s an awesome looking character, who, like all of our iconics, is depicted by artist Wayne Reynolds. Her Meet the Iconics story is written by one of our close friends and veteran freelancers Crystal Frasier. Shardra’s amazing and we’ll be seeing her adventures as one of the Pathfinder RPG’s iconic heroes for years to come.
We’ve had iconics of many genders, ethnicities, sexualities, etc, but Shardra is our first transgender iconic. This might not be a big deal for you, but I expect it to be for a fair number of readers, fantasy lovers, friends, and fellow gamers out there.
The Pathfinder Iconics have always been our stand-ins for player characters, for our readers, for the adventurers taking part in Pathfinder games across the world. We’ve purposefully made these heroes a diverse array of characters, not just for artistic reasons, but as an attempt to make sure that anyone can look through a Pathfinder RPG rulebook, adventure,  story, whatever, and find a character who they identify them, whether it be a dashing fighter like Valeros, a lesbian cleric like Kyra, or a woman in tune with the spirits like Shardra.
If you haven’t had the opportunity yet, please check out Shardra’s meet the iconic story. And even better, drop a note on the Paizo message boards, welcoming her to the team and making sure all our friends and family members who identify with her know they’re welcome and wanted at Pathfinder game tables everywhere.
Thanks everyone.

Five years ago, the only trans representation Paizo had was a semi-regular joke character who appeared in their Pathfinder Society Scenarios line of short adventures. People called them out on how bad this portrayal was, and since then we have seen transgender side characters, transgender supporting cast, and now a transgender iconic character from them.
This is how to respond to criticism! You don’t just give a fauxpology and move on. You listen, take it to heart, and strive to do better. Paizo is proof that anyone who screws up can turn around and produce something truly amazing and representative just by listening and being open-minded.

YES. THANK YOU.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY WAS LITERALLY WRITTEN BY A FEMALE ROCKET SCIENTIST

SHE’S THE FIRST WOMAN TO EVER WRITE A MARVEL MOVIE

WHY IS THIS NOT GETTING TALKED ABOUT

I did not realize this. This is good.
