Sacristans are a caste of relatively unintelligent kytons created by other kytons as slaves.[1]


Sacristans vary in their appearance, but always look like tortured and maimed humanoids, often with redundant or absent features. They typically stand between six and eight feet tall and weigh from 80 to 160 pounds.[1]


Sealed within each sacristan's mouth is miniature, permanent portal to the Shadow Plane. Kept restrained, this portal endlessly howls a cacophony of darkness and soul-shaking howls from the pits of the realms of the kytons. When threatened, sacristans open their mouths and allow this song to seduce their foes.[1]


Sacristans are bound together by interlocutors from scraps of imperfect flesh, bent chain and scarred minds. They lack free will and their minds are etched with the ability to serve, making them utterly obedient to other kytons. Sacristans take ecstatic pleasure from serving fellow kytons.[1]
