Vermin Keeper - Faerun Prestige Class
This is a Forgotten Realms Exclusive Class
Most creatures view creepy, crawly insects with revulsion. To a vermin keeper, however, they're perfect killers - creatures whose supreme adaptations to their environs inspire a sense of awe.
Vermin keepers come almost exclusively from the ranks of druids. Some are upperworlders whose eyes have been opened to the beauty of bugs; others loved bugs to begin with and merely learned the druidic arts so that they could apply them to insects. Most characters who care enough about vermin to take levels in the vermin keeper prestige class pursue it to the exclusion of all else.
Interestingly, not every character who pursues this prestige class actually loves bugs. Sometimes a person who particularly hates or fears insects or spiders decides to study them in order to understand or overmaster them.
