Ylimancha is an agathion empyreal lord who watches over coastlines and protects those whose livelihood depends on the sea. She is said to have taught fisherfolk how to build breakwaters to protect ports from the sea, how to find schools of fish, and cautioned them against overfishing.1

Home

Ylimancha lives in a great golden aerie on the Skyward Cliffs, on the shore of the Sea of No Shadows in Nirvana.1

Appearance

Ylimancha has two forms: one of an osprey-headed woman carrying a teak longbow strung with gold; and another of a siren with the body of a white seagull and the head of a Varisian crone with short dark hair. In both forms, she speaks with a voice carrying the echo of crashing waves.12

Relationships

Since the dawn of time, Ylimancha has been fighting against Pazuzu over the souls of those that fly. She bitterly resents those races lost to his evil influence.21

Servants

Ylimancha is served by many chelonidals, who are often front-line infantry in agathion armies.3

Cults

Holy symbol

Ylimancha's holy symbol is a golden gull with three concentric blue rings on each outstretched wing.1

On Golarion

Ylimancha's cult is popular in the Varisian city of Magnimar.2
