Keen Hearing and Smell : Callum has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell. Furthermore, as an action, Sprout can see and hear through the eyes and ears of Callum when within 100’, until the start of his next turn, gaining these benefits during this time. During this time, Sprout is deaf and blind with regard to his own senses.
Dimensional Lair : As an action, Callum can be dismissed into a pocket dimension where it awaits Sprouts summons. Also, as an action, while so dismissed, Callum can reappear into any unoccupied space within 30’ of Sprout.
Familiar Touch : When casting a spell with a range of touch, Sprout can deliver the spell through Callum as if he had cast the spell. Callum must be within 100’ of Sprout, and must use his reaction to deliver the spell when Sprout casts it. If it requires a spell attack roll, Callum uses Bresal’s modifiers.

Callum is the fox-form spirit, summoned by Bresal Darkharrow to act as his familiar, taking the form of a Firefoot Fox. Fascinated by fey things, it seemingly has a mind of its own when confronted by these features, and has proven quite independent-minded. Callum loves three things; attention, delicious foods and rare drink. When not presented with these things, Callum garners attention from all around him by both subtle and increasingly outlandish behaviour. He demands only the finest chocolates, the sweetest of meads.
A Firefoot Fox appears as a small, large-eared fox possessing a distinctive pattern of flame-colored fur around their paws, rather than the typical black “socks” of more common vulpines. Firefoot Foxes are regarded as good luck symbols, and by extension their uniquely colored pelts are prized by furriers. A group of Firefoot Foxes are known as a “Skulk”.
Callum was first summoned in 21st Savor, TR 1049.
On the 5th of Hammer, TR 1050, Callum met an untimely end after taking a direct blast from Mother Nanns Iceclaws Ice Storm, which also severely wounded Bresal, knocking him unconscious and nearly killing him. Callum was re-summoned soon thereafter, and continues to pester Bresal and the other adventurers for sips of wine and nibbles of sweet meats.
