A herald is the incarnate embodiment of a deity's will. These unique creatures are often sent as messengers or to assist the followers of a god. Their appearance on Golarion is rare in the extreme, and they only ever do so with the express permission of their divine patron. Certain devout worshipers of a god may summon them using powerful spells (such as greater planar ally), but, even then, they only appear by divine consent, and only to those who are held in the highest favor or whose need is truly great.[1][2] Heralds are unique individuals, as opposed to a god's servitor race.[3]
