Notes Strange almagations of human and animal parts, sphinx (singular and plural) are magical creatures of the desert and hills. They have a lion-like body, a human-like head, and part of a human chest or torso. Feathered wings rise from their shoulders. Their forepaws have some manipulative ability, and are in fact clumsy hands. Sphinx are roughly the size of lions – about 200 kg when full grown. Their bodies are generally tawny brown, their wings tan to white, and the human features match middle eastern norms. Sphinx are long- lived. They are ‘cubs’ for a few years, are fully grown by their mid twenties, but then live four or five times as long as a human. Due to their long lives, they are slow to breed. As with many part human-part beast creatures, sphinx show a peculiar mixture of sophistication and savagery. They enjoy good conversation and company, have a strong appreciation for the arts, and love debate and philosophy. They are also quite happy to rip open a debate opponent and feast on his still-living entrails. (When seriously crossed or insulted, give the sphinx a Resistance roll to avoid falling into a sudden rage.) Aside from this, sphinx exhibit many cat-like traits. The sphinx are rare, and consequently, solitary. When they congregate in groups, the group invariably has a single focus (such as listening to a philosopher speak), or breaks into pairs and/or solitary activity. Some sphinx historians claim there was once a great sphinx empire, thousands of years ago, and other creatures, such as humans, were their slaves. Sphinx have their own language, which is distantly related to Aramaic (1/10 skill in Aramaic = skill in Sphinx). Most learn half a dozen or more languages as they grow up. They use local writing styles, but there is a written form of Sphinx, which is composed of elaborate hieroglyphics. Sphinx normally use divine magic, and many are followers of knowledge gods, such as Thoth.
