Scarab Stalker

Source Ultimate Wilderness pg. 55, Advanced Class Origins pg. 13 (Amazon)
The forgotten ruins in the desert sands have given rise to a breed of hunters who call upon the powers of the pyramids to protect and explore the ancient sites of their people. These hunters form sacred bonds with desertdwelling denizens.
