From PathfinderWiki

Algeas are a class of psychopomps that protect and rescue mortal souls from being claimed by false prophets and malignant powers.12


An algea is a shrill swarm of small nosois, each of which resembles a whippoorwill, infused with streamers of pale blue mist.13


Algeas protect and retrieve souls that are at risk of being claimed, particularly those of spellcasters who dabbled with otherworldly forces but never officially pledged their souls. Algeas are particularly focused rescuing souls in danger of being trapped within the Material Plane by entities like the Great Old Ones or false prophets worshipped as gods by deluded cultists.1
