Strix are a race of dark-winged humanoids who live in a single community in Avistan, at the rocky spires known as the Devil's Perch in western Cheliax. Strix have developed a deep hatred of humans for unknown reasons, but deeply resent human intrusions and besiegement. According to legend, the strix were delivered to their current home in a terrible storm, where they must survive as punishment until the end of the sun. Images on scrolls in the library of Iadara in Kyonin have led to speculation of a relationship with winged humanoids among the men of Azlant and the elves of Adarshavir. Besides flight, strix see well in the dark, starlight, and moonlight, and are resistant to illusions due to their deep suspicions.
Strix resemble humans in size and build, but are distinguished by their 12-foot wingspan, pointed ears, slitted nostrils, and eyes without pupils. The strix language is a strange creole of Azlanti and Infernal.
Habitat & Ecology
Less than thousand members live at their only colony in Avistan, at Devil's Perch. With a small population, the creatures value their children and treat death as a serious matter, retaliating severely for any offense.
