Namorrodor are undead hunters who live on the shadow plane but eternally crave the meat of creatures from the material plane.[1]

Appearance

Namorrodor are bestial looking undead, appearing vaguely lupin in form, they have dark fur and large, vicious teeth. A namorrodor is quite comfortable as both a biped or quadruped and will change between the two as the situation requires. A namorrodor's skin sits loosely across its frame with bone spurs tearing through its flesh. These bone spurs are hollow and emit a eerie, haunting whistling sound as air passes through them, frightening their prey.[1]

Habitat and Ecology

Namorrodors dwell on the shadow plane but the food there provides them only the most limited sustenance, so they instead seek prey on the material plane. They are able to sense the life force of prey on the material plane wherever it is coterminous with the shadow plane. They are able to move between the planes to kill and feast, this transition is always marked by the appearance of a shooting star. It is said that they can only makes this leap between planes on the eve of a death and they are forced to return to the shadow plane within a day. Namorrodors are drawn to the smell of cooking meat and often prey upon lone travellers who stray too far from their camp fires. Namorrodors have a natural vulnerability to fire and tend to try and avoid open flames. Their favourite meal by far is unprotected babies and a namorrodor will risk even fire to try and snatch an unprotected child.[1]

On Golarion

Namorrodors can be found across the length and breadth of Golarion where the shadow and material planes meet. They are known to hunt near the river gorges of the Storval Plateau of Varisia, across the Bandu Hills of northern Vidrian, across the Windswept Wastes of distant Casmaron and along the river that divides the deserts of Shaguang from the nomadic kingdom of Hongal.[1]
