An azmyth was a species of deep bat found in Faerûn and in the Underdark.
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.
Azmyths ate flowers, small plants, and insects.
Azmyths had higher-than-average intelligence. They often formed close friendships with other creatures for mutual benefit. These friendships could last a lifetime.
Azmyths could strike with both their bite and their needle-sharp tails. They could unleash a shock attack, similar to the spell shocking grasp.
Azmyths communicated by telepathy. They had the ability to know alignment. They could become invisible and create an area of silence around themselves.
A notable azmyth would be Xuxa, the animal companion of noted ranger and archeologist Baylee Arnvold.
