Familiar Pets

19.20 Familiar Pets

Many Celani have existed in the millennium of history since the creation. Little is known about these enigmatic and powerful beings, save some indications that they existed to serve the Gods.

Some Celani persist in service, but others disappear, never to walk the mortal planes. The comings and goings of these immortal servants remain a mystery, but sometimes, some Celani leaves a piece of itself behind.

These pieces contain a memory of the service that the Celani performed and are able to take the form of sentient beings that will serve the heroes that release them. Known as familiars, these entities can be commanded.

Familiars are not hardy creatures. When they are attacked, they will automatically return to your inventory. If they attempt to move at all in territory to which you are enemied or unwanted, they will automatically return to your inventory.
