Cockroaches are diminutive insects often found in houses and urban areas, which they are drawn to by the warmth and food present there. Although seen as pests, they are fairly innocuous beings and are notoriously skittish. They are sometimes taken as familiars.[1]

Cockroach swarms

Certain species of cockroach feed preferentially on meat. Although these are usually scavengers, they can become aggressive predators when they gather in numbers, forming predatory cockroach swarms, or flesh-eating cockroach swarms.[2] While swarming cockroaches still feed primarily on carrion and rotting meat, they are known to attack larger creatures than themselves if they encounter them.[3]

Giant cockroaches

While most cockroaches are much smaller than humanoid beings, certain varieties are known to grow much larger than common roaches. Numerous species of giant cockroach exist, and can range in size from ones smaller than a typical humanoid to others of considerable size. Known species include:

On Golarion

Cockroaches of various kinds are commonly encountered wherever refuse and detritus can be found, such as the Filth district of Carrion Hill[7] and the Boneyard of Riddleport.[8]

In religion

Cockroaches are the sacred animals of the daemonic harbinger Diceid.[9]
