Foo creatures are guardian spirits that resemble types of animals on the Material Plane, and sometimes travel to or are summoned to it to serve as guardians.[2] They are the most numerous form of ascended petitioners in Nirvana, where they enjoy aiding agathions and playing with others of their kind—even those that look like natural predators of their own form.[1]

Appearance

Any type of animal can serve as the basis of a foo creature—indeed, every type of animal has a foo counterpart somewhere in Nirvana—though the most commonly seen forms summoned to the Material Plane are dogs and lions.[1][2] However, with faces that more closely resemble a humanoid's, they are rarely confused with their mundane counterparts.[2]

Abilities

Foo creatures are significantly smarter than their animal counterparts, with a level of intelligence nearly approaching that of some humans. They can converse in Celestial and Taldane, and can understand and follow complicated instructions.[2]

Foo creatures can also turn their skin into hard stone and stand perfectly still for indefinite lengths of time. Along with their exaggerated features, foo creatures can resemble statues so convincingly that they can hide in plain sight.[2]

Ecology

Foo creatures enjoy frolicking in Nirvana but are more serious when encountered on the Material Plane. They freely cooperate with kind, respectful visitors.[1]

Foo creatures can serve as mounts but dislike doing so, and also hate war.[2]
