Aerial Servant

Aerial Servant
My Images (

Appearance: Aerial Servants are ethereal entities, their forms concealed by an invisible veil, leaving only a faint ripple in the air as evidence of their presence. When glimpsed, they manifest as vaguely humanoid vapors adorned with celestial grace, weaving through the sky with undulating swiftness. Their invisible bodies seem to shimmer with radiant energy, embodying the very essence of elemental air.

Behavior: These elemental beings operate with cosmic neutrality, embodying the impartial forces of the air. As silent enforcers of celestial justice, Aerial Servants navigate the realms with a temperamental diligence. Despite their invisible nature, they move with formidable swiftness, becoming relentless bounty hunters and assassins when summoned to the Material Plane. Their ethereal presence exudes an enigmatic grace, remaining unseen until they strike with divine efficiency.

Habitat: Native to the Plane of Air, Aerial Servants traverse planar portals to the Ethereal and Astral Planes, embodying a force that transcends dimensions. On the Material Plane, they are summoned as guardians, patrolling celestial realms and hidden corners where their ethereal influence is needed. Their existence bridges the gap between the elemental and celestial, making them both emissaries and enforcers of cosmic balance.

Modus Operandi: Operating with innate invisibility and near-faultless tracking skills, Aerial Servants are masters of stealth. They employ blasts of wind to scatter enemies before closing in with strangleholds, a lethal combination that showcases their ethereal elegance. Their temperamental nature occasionally leads them to track down and attack those who fail at assigned tasks, reinforcing their commitment to celestial duty and the maintenance of cosmic harmony.

Motivation: Guided by the principles of cosmic neutrality, Aerial Servants are motivated by the preservation of celestial balance. Summoned to the Material Plane for tasks of paramount importance, they serve as unseen arbiters, meting out swift and decisive justice to those who threaten the delicate equilibrium between celestial forces. Their allegiance to cosmic harmony drives them to uphold celestial duty, ensuring that their ethereal presence remains a vigilant guardian of celestial realms and the cosmic order.

Improved Tracking (Ex)

An aerial servant takes no penalty on Survival checks when moving its full speed and gains a +10 bonus on Survival checks to track.

Natural Invisibility (Su)

This ability is constantly in effect, even when the aerial servant is attacking, and is not subject to invisibility purge. Against foes that are unable to see invisible creatures, it gains an additional +20 bonus on Stealth checks when moving, or +40 when stationary. On the Astral Plane or the Ethereal Plane, an aerial servant gains concealment (20% miss chance) rather than invisibility.

Wind Blast (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds, as a standard action, an aerial servant can release a blast of wind in an 80-foot line, dealing 8d8 points of bludgeoning damage (Reflex DC 22 half). Medium or smaller creatures that fail their saving throws are knocked prone and pushed 1d4 × 5 feet away. The save DC is Constitution-based.


Environment any (Plane of Air)
Organization solitary
Treasure none

Aerial servants are deadly hunters native to the Plane of Air, though they often wander through planar portals to the Ethereal Plane and sometimes roam the Astral Plane as well. They are generally called to the Material Plane as bounty hunters or assassins, using their natural invisibility and near-faultless tracking skills to pursue their quarry and then strike unseen. They typically scatter enemies with blasts of wind before closing in to strangle their prey. While an aerial servant is easy to confuse with an invisible stalker, the former is far more dangerous, and those who misidentify the creature may not live to regret underestimating it.

Those who call aerial servants must be careful to assign them tasks that are possible for them to complete, as the temperamental elementals occasionally track down and attack their callers if they fail at their assigned tasks.
