Pathfinder – Animal Companion / Familiar Character Sheets


Thanks to AnaRchX, here is a fillable version of my Animal Companion / Familiar Sheet modified for Pathfinder. He also made a couple of other minor improvements.

The original version (here) has been my most popular post. e is a link to my fillable version (here).

Here is a link to his post on the Pathfinder forum:


Many thanks to George for doing this:


UPDATE: George has made several major improvements to this.

Added BAB fill able field. (Basic Attack Bonus)

Added CMB and CMD bonuses. (Combat Maneuver Bonus – Combat Maneuver Defence)

  • CMB = BAB + STRmod + SizeMod + MiscMod + MiscMod
  • CMD = BAB + STRmod + SizeMod + DexMod + MiscMod + 10

Cleaned up every fill able field. (Previously overlapping fields or fields not covering the entire box area)

Added javascript code to prevent showing numbers if the required fields are blank.

Changed the order of calculations on the form to include CMB and CMD.

Added a non  print-able button that clears everything on the form.



George has made some minor fixes on how the CMB and CMD are displayed and are calculated. Download the updated file here: animal-sheet-fillable-AnaRchX

He has also added a version with NO grey text indicating the Ability Modifiers. Just blank boxes. (It was a suggestion from a Pathfinder user on the forum.) Download it here: animal-sheet-fillable-AnaRchX-Blank


In response to a comment regarding his fillable animal sheet,  George  responded “I updated the companion sheet once again regarding the issue with the text still showing after the boxes were filled mentioned in the comments.”

Thank you George.

D&D Next – Animal Companion / Familiar Character Sheets – Fillable


Here is a fillable version of my Animal Companion / Familiar Sheet.

The original version (here) has been my most popular post. I have received request for a fillable version and I recently got the software to make that possible. I even included a modest amount of math, so it calculates the bonuses based on the ability scores you enter..


There is now a version available for Pathfinder (here).

There is a version for D%D 5e (here).


D&D 3.5 – Animal Companion / Familiar Character Sheets



This is a character sheet for animal companions and familiars for Dungeons and Dragons Lite.

This is a multi-layer PDF file. When you open it, it will be unreadable until you turn off some of the layers. To use it simply turn off all of the layers except for those that contain the information you desire.

1) For a blank sheet – turn off all of the layers except for the “Sheet” layer.

2) Turn on the layer “Animal Companion – Wolf”  for a ready-to-play wolf animal companion.


2) Turn on the layer “Familiar-Rat” for an almost ready-to-play rat familiar. It has the information filled in for a normal rat, but you will need to adjust its statistics based on your player character’s as explained in the 3.5 Players’ Handbook.pdf-xchange_1


Please let me know if you discover any mistakes, or if you think I should have created these differently.

UPDATE: There is now a fillable version of this popular file – Find it on this post: Animal Companion / Familiar Character Sheets – Fillable

UPDTATE 2: By request – you can now download a completely blank version (no layers) for those of you who prefer to print out a bloak sheet and fill it in by hand. Click on this link  animal-sheet-blank
