There flapped rhythmically a horde of tame, trained, hybrid winged things…not altogether crows, nor moles, nor buzzards, nor ants, nor decomposed human beings, but something I cannot and must not recall. H.P. Lovecraft, The Festival
This interstellar race often serves Hastur the Unnamable. Composed of conventional matter, they are vulnerable to ordinary weapons such as pistols. Byakhee can fly through space and carry a rider each, though such riders need protection from the vacuum and cold by suitable spells or potions. Byakhee do not have bases on Earth, but may be summoned to perform deeds or serve as steeds.
In combat, a Byakhee may either strike with both claws simultaneously or attempt to bite the target. If the bite strikes home the Byakhee remains attached to the victim and begins to drain his or her blood.
First encountered during the events of [[Case 010 – The Golden Dawn: Hell Hath No Fury | Case 010 – The Golden Dawn: Hell Hath No Fury]].
