Horned archon

From PathfinderWiki
Horned archon
Stag archon1E

Qarnas, also known as horned archons2 or stag archons,3 are the divine servitors3 and allies of the god Erastil. These archons resemble powerful humans with four golden-horned heads and cloven feet of stags or elk.24

Society and culture

Horned archons serve Heaven as scouts and trackers, patrol the wildernesses of the Outer Sphere, hunt evil beings, and keep smaller communities safe from harm. They perform a similar role when called to the Universe, something typically done at the request of the patron Erastil, where they patrol dangerous frontiers, help mortals in need, and drive off dangerous monsters.12

Because horned archons often patrol the wildernesses of Nirvana and Elysium, they tend to be better at understanding the perspectives of other celestials than other archons.1
