Ecology: The byakhee dwell in interstellar space and serve Hastur the Unspeakable. Such facts as how they breathe (if they do), what they eat, and how they breed are unknown. They can fly in interstellar space, and can carry passengers with them, although the passenger must fend for themselves during the trip.

Personality/Motivation: Byakhee exist to serve Hastur, although they can be summoned by mortal wizards and pressed into service. In general, they seem to ignore humanity, unless told to do otherwise.

Powers/Tactics: A byakhee will swipe with its claws or grab and bite. Once it bites a victim, it will keep draining blood until it killed of the victim is dead. If hard pressed or wounded, the byakhee will fly off.

Appearance: A byakhee is a winged "thing" standing over seven feet in height. It is often described as bat-like, while others say it is more like an insect. The byakhee has two legs, two clawed arms, and a broad set of bat-like wings. It is dark in color and covered in fur.

Designer's Notes: The byakhee is a creature of the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. This design was based upon the byakhee presented in the 5th Edition of Call of Cthulhu. Suggestions include giving the creature spells, such as "Contact Hastur" or something similar. As written they make a good wizard's pet or messenger.
