About

This regal creature resembles a muscular winged humanoid warrior with a proud eagle’s head and four wing-like arms ending in delicately clawed hands. It bears a double-bladed polearm and is clad in elaborate armor, enameled in white and chased in gold.

The hawk-headed kamasuhn are celestial warriors, serving in the retinues of many different lawful good gods, and performing tasks for their patrons in the Material Plane. They are most often employed as guardians of dangerous or sacred places, or to retrieve lost treasures and artifacts. In this last capacity, kamasuhn have been known to assist adventuring parties in their various quests, so long as their new friends agree to aid the kamasuhn in retrieving the item in question and, if necessary, destroying it. If tasked to bring the item back to their patron, kamasuhn will reluctantly battle recalcitrant parties for the item’s possession.

Though they are merciless in their persecution of evil creatures, neither asking nor giving quarter, kamasuhn are reluctant to take the lives of good creatures. If good creatures are threatened with death at a kamasuhn’s hands, it will instead attempt to knock out the creature rather than kill it.
