Barbarians, contrary to popular belief, are not wild, bloodthirsty savages. Well, usually. They are instead clans of wild folk that are more in tune with the spirit world than most. Many have a simple way of viewing the world, and their histories are usually passed on through tale and song. However, not all barbarian clans are illiterate. If you wish to play as an illiterate barbarian, take the Illiterate trait.

Guardian Spirit

A Barbarian's Guardian Spirit or Totem is the spiritual entity that watches over and guides their actions and temperament. The form that this spirit takes strongly influences the Barbarian's attitude, personality, and actions, though indirectly. Perhaps the most commonly encountered Barbarians are those with the Bear spirit guiding them, giving rise to the myth that all barbarians are prone to violent fits of rage.

More advanced Barbarians that gain a deeper connection with their Totem can even take on a form similar to that Totem for a short time. This similar to a Druid's Wild Shape ability, but vastly different; The form that the Barbarian takes on more closely resembles the hybrid form of a were-creature. They retain a bipedal, upright shape and overall size, but they gain many of the physical features of their Totem. For example, a barbarian with the Serpent totem in totem form would be covered in scales and have a snake-like head with venomous fangs, but still retain two legs and two arms. These forms generally provide heightened senses and abilities, and even methods of flight in some cases.
