Cervinals stand proud and regal at the head of Nirvana’s agathion forces. Sometimes termed the “knights” of the agathions, cervinals have gained a reputation for their battle prowess, noble natures, and admirable wisdom, as well as their fearlessness and willingness to lead from the front.
They stand almost 11 feet tall, though part of that height is their magnificent racks of antlers, which can measure up to 4 feet across. These antlers gleam as if forged from beaten bronze, and a fine fuzz of downy gold covers their entire bodies, particularly along the shoulders and neck.
Cervinals from the more frigid regions of Nirvana sport an entire coat of chestnut fur up their chests and shoulders.
In the good-aligned planes, they most often serve as generals in battles against fiends, but they also develop strategies to combat everyday evil in the multiverse, secure evil artifacts, and coordinate efforts between agathions and other celestial races.
