Agathion

Source Alien Archive 4 pg. 7
Agathions, who have humanoid forms with animal aspects, form from the souls of mortals who reached an enlightened state and became infused with holy power. Most remain content to meditate and explore their home plane of Nirvana, but many others visit the Material Plane to combat evil, especially evil that threatens the natural world.

Four-armed and four-eyed vicunals resemble ruthigs and share ruthigs’ preference for traveling in groups. This variation of herd mentality makes vicunals intuitive therapists who tirelessly attend to their companions’ physical and emotional injuries. Despite their tenacity and indefatigable skirmishing tactics, these agathions struggle to overcome powerful foes. In these cases, vicunals typically recruit mortal agents willing to and capable of neutralizing the evil.

Maned claustrals resemble the predatory eohis of the Nejeor system, expressing much of eohis’ love of pursuing and hounding their targets. However, claustrals almost never hunt to kill, instead patrolling cityscapes to protect their adopted fauna or neutralize deadly beasts. Although they take pains to warn negligent urbanites who inadvertently harm animals, claustrals often respond with violence to subdue or even kill serial abusers, such as those who run beast-fighting circuits. To claustrals’ chagrin, these brief rampages can spur rumors of an escaped beast, attracting bounty hunters who hope to slay the mysterious creature.

Special Abilities

Nurture (Su) When a vicunal uses its healing channel ability, it can choose to nurture one of the creatures it healed. If it does so, the vicunal loses its fast healing and grants that fast healing to the nurtured creature. This effect lasts for a number of rounds equal to the vicunal’s Charisma modifier (3 rounds for a typical vicunal).
Speak with Animals (Su) A vicunal can communicate with animals and use language-dependent effects on them.
