Fast Healing (Ex)

A thyrlien has fast healing 1 only when outside under a night sky (whether the sky is cloudy or clear).

Poison (Ex)

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 14; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1d3 Str; cure 2 consecutive saves.

Starlight Blast (Su)

As a standard action once every 1d4 rounds, a thyrlien can tap into unleash a blast of holy twilight in a 5-foot burst. All creatures in this area take 2d4 points of holy damage, plus 1 point for each step their alignment deviates from chaotic good.

For example, a chaotic neutral or neutral good creature would take 2d4+1 points of damage, a neutral creature would take 2d4+2 points of damage, and a lawful evil creature would take 2d4+4 points of damage. A DC 14 Reflex save negates this damage.

Chaotic good creatures are unaffected by this ability. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Editor’s Note

The ability score that the poison saving throw DC is based on was not indicated in the source. Based on most examples we’re assuming it should be Constitution-based.


Environment any (Elysium)
Organization solitary, pair or squad (3-5)
Treasure standard

A thyrlien is a unique type of azata created by the Goddess of dreams, luck, stars and travelers. Intended as rare warrior counterparts to lyrakien, thyrlien are tasked with watching over nighttime travelers. Specifically hunting the servants of the Goddess of madness, monsters and nightmares and the God of infection, parasites and stagnation, thyrlien wander lonely roads and dark alleys, hoping to confront or counter the dark things that so often hunt such ominous spots. Superficially humanoid, a thyrlien’s attacks reveal its nonhuman origins. Venomous saliva coats mouth and its delicate-looking wings are actually as stiff as wood and have razor sharp edges. A thyrlien is skilled at tracking using conventional and magical methods and is savvy to the ways of its chosen prey.

These servants of the goddess of luck stand about 2 feet tall and weigh around 15 pounds.
