Cie'th NelapsiPlates of amber, honey brown, and burgundy crystal are layered over this flying creature, around whom swirls a light breeze. With a few strong flaps of its wings, it turns the gentle winds into a localized, deadly vortex.– Manly Man

Uncanny Dodge (Ex)

A nelapsi can react to danger before its sense would normally allow it to do so. It cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does it lose its Dexterity bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. It still loses its Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A nelapsi can still lose its Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action against it.

Wind Slasher (Su)

With a few great flaps from its wings, the nelapsi unleashes a swirling blast of wind that seems to cut through the air like blades. As a standard action, the nelapsi can deal 3d6 slashing damage and 3d6 wind damage to all enemies within a 30 ft. cone, three times per day. A successful Reflex save (DC 15) halves both sources of damage.


Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, gang (3-5), flock (6-12), unkindness (13+), squadron (2-5 nelapsi and 1-2 taxim)
Treasure none

Something of a trend between the winged Cie’th is their notoriety for being encountered with numbers on their side. Though they do not usually appear in groups as large as those of wights or chonchons, the nelapsi do indeed flock together, and can be especially dangerous when doing so; when facing large, tough, or otherwise troublesome enemies, they tend to have many use their wind slash ability on their target or targets at once, in the hopes that they can slay their foe quickly.

Nelapsi are 6 feet tall and weigh about 110 pounds.
