Vayuphaks, also known as golden ones, are asuras who protect desecrated holy sites from any who attempt to reclaim or purify them.[1]


Vayuphaks appear as seven-foot-tall blue-skinned humanoids with avian features, including black wings and taloned hands. They weigh 120 pounds, though some are said to grow to even larger sizes.[1]


After asuras spoil a holy site, vayuphaks stand guard over the ruins. They ridicule its former patron by forming mockingly false cults, and prefer psychic combat over physical confrontation. Much of the time, they appear to be sitting in silent reflection to refine their psychic weapons.[1]

A divine servant was tasked with guarding a treasure that legend told would grant the deity's blessing. After many of the god's followers were killed trying to obtain this item, the god decided to curse the item instead. From that point forward, anyone who saw the treasure was driven mad. Once the divine servant was caught by the curse, he took the artefact, his dreams of madness sired the original vayuphaks. Some say these first of the race still guard this desecrated relic and its corrupted owner.[1]
