Syrinxes are humanoids native to the continent of Arcadia[1] with the heads, wings, and feet of owls. They are scholars who highly value art and philosophy, and seek to distance themselves from their own history of barbarism. Their methods, however, are anything but cultured, as they seek to enslave all other races (especially those without wings) to serve their quest for cultural progress.[2]


Syrinx society revolves around a hierarchy of their subservient races, with the strix immediately beneath them. Syrinx magically modified the strix race in the distant past to serve as their soldiers and slave masters,[2] though the strix of the Inner Sea region have all but forgotten their former overlords.[3]


As well as using Common as a language, syrinxes are able to communicate with any bird or birdlike magical beast and have their own language, which is also known as Syrinx.[2]
