Heavily muscled creatures that dangle from ceilings. They take great delight in art, culture, and devouring other sentient lifeforms.
The Phamysht are very comfortable with their cannibalism-based lifestyle and do not understand the revulsion shown to them by less civilized races. After all, one cannot honestly know the quality of a being until they know what they taste like slow-roasted over a fire.
Despite their reputation, the Phamysht are more than blood-starved beasts. Elegant and civilized, they are reserved diplomats and excellent negotiators. It's the responsibility of Senior Lord Devourers to keep peace with other races, as well as sourcing new supplies of delicacies.
