Pavbaghas are a race of divine servitors who serve the god Irori, and resemble white tigers with blue stripes. They are formed from the shades of the faithful who have lived enlightened lives of calm, patience, and wisdom.1

Habitat and ecology

Pavbaghas are devoted to serving their god and his followers by patrolling the borders of the Serene Circle, Irori's realm, and watching over sacred sites and important mortal worshippers in the Universe. Some pavbaghas choose to serve in temples and monasteries of Irori where they serve as teachers, usually specialising in combat and teaching disciples how best to fight with monsters and dangerous beasts. Others teach meditation and help provide wisdom for those in spiritual dilemmas, while some seek to help and guide those on pilgrimages. Pavbaghas are larger than normal tigers at about ten to twelve feet in length and weigh up to nine hundred pounds.1


Pavbaghas are created from the souls of enlightened worshippers of Irori and, as such, are patient, wise, and self-controlled creatures, although they do not hesitate to leap into battle when necessary. They also enjoy training students as well as tracking and hunting prey. Like other outsiders, they have no need to eat, so pavbaghas do not kill their quarries; instead, they lay a single paw on them to signify their victory and then allow them to escape.1
