Baobhan sith

Baobhan siths are the fey equivalent to a vampire.1


Baobhan siths typically resemble humanoid figures with sharp, vampire-esque teeth and sharp claws. Most baobhan siths have a substantial flair for the dramatic and garb themselves in dark robes and other gothic trappings, making them resemble even more your typical Ustalavic vampire count.1


As the mirror of their Material Plane vampiric colleagues, baobhan siths can drink blood. While this does not seem to sustain the creatures, it remains an enjoyable aesthetic experience for them. Instead of being able to change shape into a bat or a insect swarm, as some nosferatu vampires are known to do, baobhan siths can turn into ravens.1

Baobhan siths draw their prey through two methods: a supernatural ability to read minds, allowing them to more easily manipulate their targets, and a captivating dance that hypnotizes their prey into moving toward them and accepting their embrace.1


Baobhan siths are most commonly encountered in the First World, though their preferred targets typically live on the Material Plane. Baobhan siths prefer their residences to match their gothic sensibilities, and they often seek abandoned buildings, ruins, and the like to decorate to their tastes.1
