Astral deva

Tabellias, also known as emissary angels,2 act as the messengers and reconnaissance agents of the Great Beyond's benign deities and armies. They resemble unusually tall, beautiful humans with long, feathered wings, and are often found carrying scrolls upon which are written the divine missives or judgements.34 They form either spontaneously from souls of good-aligned mortals, or intentionally by divine entities with features that affiliate them with that specific deity or demigod.52


Paizo referred to emissary angels as astral devas until the publication of Monster Core, which renamed their species to tabellia.
