Venom Blade (Alchemist/Rogue)

Alchemists tend to be dangerous in their own rite, using spell-like extracts to enhance himself or throwing bombs to destroy his foes. Occasionally however, an alchemist will delve into the practice of other arts in an attempt to enhance his expertise. By fusing alchemical knowledge and toxicology with his inherent stealth and agility, the venom blade transforms into the very embodiment of the most virulent of poisons. Over time, the body of a venom blade becomes suffused with toxins to such a degree that his blood, even his very touch becomes toxic to those around him. As a living source of deadly poison, the venom blade is viewed by many as a truly formidable and fearsome foe.
