Adhukait

From PathfinderWiki
Adhukait
(Creature)

The adhukait are a strange-looking race of twinned asura.[1] Well-known adhukaits include Caiiac and Kaisadvaisad.[1]

Appearance

Adhukaits appear as two thorn-covered, gray humanoids joined by ties of flesh and chain. Knowing how their bizarre appearance startles mortals, they revel in frightening them with a deadly blade dance.[1]

Habitat & Ecology

Adhukaits' creation also has two distinct stories. One story says the creatures first arose from the corpses of two near-divine brigands who died while attempting to steal a great treasure from an ancient god. Their bodies fell into 12 pieces when they were destroyed, causing great calamities, and adhukaits were born of the destruction.[1] Another story says that two asuras challenged a great warrior to a fight one after the other. When the asuras inevitably attacked at once, they were struck with such force and fury by the warrior, angry at this betrayal, that they fused together.[2] Adhukaits practise theft, kidnapping, and other crimes of stealth to torment the innocent and frustrate the gods.[1]

Adhukaits particularly lair in lonely, forgotten regions of Hell, particularly in Erebus and Caina.[1]
