Mephits is the name given to a grouping of diminutive, bat-winged creatures native to the elemental planes. As they are less powerful than most other outsiders native to these planes, they can often be found serving the powerful as servants and messengers.[1]

Each of the nine known species of mephits (see the table below) has its own unique powers, although they all share the abilities to fly, to magically summon others of their kind, and to discharge a damaging breath weapon when threatened.[1]
