Often times they are overlooked as street or circus performers, but the bonds they have with their companions make them uniquely gifted in inspiring the best in all their allies, regardless if they walk on four legs or two.

Improved Animal Friendship

When you join the College of Animal Whispering at 3rd level, you learn the animal friendship spell. If you already know this spell, you lean a different bard spell of your choice. This spell doesn’t count against your number of spells known.

When you cast animal friendship, the beast is charmed when it fails its saving throw and you double your proficiency bonus on Wisdom (Animal Handling) checks against the beast.

Summon Familiar

Also at 3rd level, you can use your action to cast find familiar once per long rest. You do not need to already know the ritual and do not need any material components to use the ritual.

Shared Inspiration

Starting at 6th level, your familiar is a source of inspiration. When your familiar uses its action to Help you or an ally on an attack roll or skill check, you or your ally can spend its Bardic Inspiration die and add the result to the d20 roll.

Shared Spells

Beginning at 14th level, when you cast a spell targeting yourself, you can also affect your familiar with the spell if the familiar is within 30 feet of you.
