A star is a luminous celestial body seen in the night sky and possibly, for the brightest stars, during dawn and dusk. The closest star to Golarion is its own sun. Stars are often grouped together to form constellations. However, some stars are known in their own right.[1]

Most stars in the Material Plane contain portals in their cores leading to the Positive Energy Plane, through which mature souls enter the Material Plane and find their way to mortal vessels. These portals are fiercely guarded by the Positive Energy Plane's jyoti natives.[2][3]
