Nykteras, or bat sprites, are gentle sprites known for their affectionate nature and incredible hospitality. Nykteras share features with bats, but the type of bat varies by location, as nykteras tend to form small colonies in locations with bats similar to their own nature. A nyktera's sense of hospitality is such that they're willing to share with any who need it, even bitter foes. However, violating a nyktera's hospitality is one of their greatest taboos, inviting rare anger and retribution from the nyktera who was wronged, as well as their large extended family.

Wrath of Spurned Hospitality A nyktera whose hospitality is betrayed becomes enraged at the violation of a fundamental aspect of their fey nature. They must succeed at a DC 20 Will save or begin involuntarily attacking the traitor. At the end of each of their turns, if they choose, they can attempt another Will save to end the effect; otherwise, the effect lasts until the traitor is subdued or leaves the nyktera's presence.

All Monsters in "Sprite"



Source Bestiary pg. 308
Elusive, flighty, and ebullient, sprites are what many villagers first imagine when they hear the terms “fey” or “fairy.” While their dispositions vary from the benevolent grig to the trickster pixie, all sprites share a connection to magic and diminutive size. This family of fey shares its name with its slightest and most populous member, the common sprite.

Sidebar - Additional Lore Sprite Pranks

Sprite pranks tend to be kind‑hearted in nature; they might use their abilities to embarrass a braggart or to trick them into a convoluted scheme to help someone notice an admirer who has been there for them all along. Their plans are often half-baked; sprites’ mercurial nature means they can easily become distracted by something new before following through on a previous plan.
