An azmyth was a species of deep bat found in Faerûn and in the Underdark.[1]


It was a small 4-foot-long bat with a 3-foot wingspan. They had crested heads, bearded chins, and white pupil-less eyes. Skin color ranged from leathery gray or mauve to emerald green.[1]


Azmyths ate flowers, small plants, and insects.[1]


Azmyths had higher-than-average intelligence. They often formed close friendships with other creatures for mutual benefit. These friendships could last a lifetime.[1]


Azmyths could strike with both their bite and their needle-sharp tails. They could unleash a shock attack, similar to the spell shocking grasp.[1]


Azmyths communicated by telepathy. They had the ability to know alignment. They could become invisible and create an area of silence around themselves.[1]

Notable AzmythsEdit

A notable azmyth would be Xuxa, the animal companion of noted ranger and archeologist Baylee Arnvold.[2]
