Ayavah is a notorious sculptor who lives in the Varisian city of Magnimar. Her workshop, "Harpy's Fine Art",1 is located in the Harpy, one of the pilings of the Irespan in the neighborhood of Underbridge. Her work is often of a lascivious nature, and her most famous works are small figurines of incredibly detailed, entwined succubi.234

Always in search of new erotic depictions of succubi, Ayavah has a long-standing agreement with Lady Heidmarch of the local Pathfinder lodge, that she would pay well for the retrieval of any found in nearby ruins. A woman of many secrets, Ayavah believes that the demon lord Nocticula is a fallen empyreal lord34 and that Nocticula sought redemption from her demonic nature.2 With the ascension of Nocticula, she has now been vindicated in this belief.5[citation needed]


Ayavah is a willowy, pale-skinned, androgynous intersex woman with long black hair. Her demonic ancestry manifests itself in a pair of curving, goatlike horns growing from her temples and the presence of a sixth finger on each hand.4


Ayavah spent her childhood hiding the visible signs of her descent, such as by filing down her horns and hiding the stubs beneath hats and deflecting attention from her polydactyly. She began to gravitate towards Magnimar's cults in her adolescence, temporarily considering the worship of empyreal lords such as Arshea and Chucaro. She eventually settled within the Cult of the Redeemer Queen, a heretical sect of worshippers of Nocticula who believe that their Outer Rifts patron is seeking to redeem herself. This attracted Ayavah on a personal level, as the belief that even a queen of demons could achieve redemption bolstered her hope that a mortal cambion could eventually be at peace with her society.2

She eventually made peace with her nature, allowing her horns to grow out fully and ceasing to hide her nature as a cambion.6 Ayavah is currently a successful sculptor. She specializes in art featuring succubi embracing each other in loving, albeit visually graphic, poses.24 Some of her sculptures have even been made into chess pieces.7
