A gynosphinx (pronounced: /ˈgnsfɪŋksGY-no-sfinks[3]) was a female sphinx. While not as physically powerful as an androsphinx, the gynosphinx was still a capable combatant and possessed a number of magical powers. The gynosphinx was the sole female sphinx subrace.[citation needed]

Gynosphinxes preferred to pursue intellectual ideals. They loved to collect knowledge and ancient lore and delighted in solving riddles, puzzles, and mental challenges.[citation needed]

Gynosphinxes were favored by the dwarven deities Dugmaren Brightmantle and Vergadain and the Mulhorandi goddess Isis, who would often send them as messengers to their faithful.[4]
