Gryip was a brilliant tactician and powerful mage, who managed to secure as territory several hundred square miles of land, including several of our finest cities. Unfortunately for us all, she placed too much trust in her allies, and was captured and bonded as a familiar, instantly becoming a cruel and vindictive manipulator. She led her new master, and the entire Enrakkan continent, to ruin by dealing with powerful devils behind his back. Eventually the heroic Sir Grenhad saved the world by slaying her, binding her soul in a jar, and bringing her back to life without a soul. Lacking a soul, she returned to her normal self and slew the devils with a few well-timed spells. The new Enrakkan empire was a pleasant place as her territory until she died of old age five years later.
—Colombi Snarkus, Human Historian, The Rise and Eventual Demise of Legendary Foxes, Third Edition

Tactics: Gryip is an excellent tactician with an eye for using all the resources she has available to her. If wielding an army of minions is necessary to a particularly effective battle plan, she will go draft a city. She is not particularly cowardly and is willing to go behind enemy lines alone if necessary.

Soulless: Gryip has an Intelligence score of 2; Therefore, she doesn't have a soul.

Imaginative Camouflage: Gryip gets +5 to Hide in dim or no light, and -5 to Hide in bright light.

Cunning: Gryip's bonus skills are calculated by her charisma modifier, not her intelligence modifier.

Bark and Paws of the Mage: Gryip is capable of casting spells with verbal and somatic components.

Equipment: Gryip is wearing an Amulet of Natural Armor +3, Shifting silks with pockets that give +10 to Hide and Move Silently (20000 gp), Cloak of Charisma +2, Portable Hole, Helm of Comprehend Languages and Read Magic, a Scroll of Time Stop, a Scroll of Teleportation Circle, and a Scroll of Major Creation.

Note: If you're not using a powerful point buy system, Gryip should probably get +2 CR. If you're not using the Wizard balance point, you should probably toss on another +4 CR.
