The Cryx are the creation of the Cephylix. These monstrous minions serve their every whim through the Cephylix's mental control.  Their only purpose is to destroy, corrupt and obtain new victims for the Cephylix to create more abominations. The cryx come in several molds that the Cephylix seem to favor.  Each cryx is augmneted partially or entirley with metal apparatus and augmentation.  These creature are powered by Necrotic Alchemical Liquid.

Traits of the Cryx:

Undead/ Construct (Alchemical)

Immune to Acid and Fire

• Immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, morale effects, patterns, and phantasms). 

Hive Mind: The Cryx are under complete mental control of the Cephylix. Though it seems some Cryx have more free will and self awareness then others.  Usually the Drones, Skarlock, Death Jack and Satyx have no self awareness. The bloat thralls have some self awareness and free will, and the others have much more free will and self awareness usually becoming leaders of larger groups of non self aware cryx. The link between Cryx and Cephylix seems to extend over several miles. However the Cephylix seem to have unlimited range of telepathic communication with the cryx.

• Immunity to bleed, death effects, disease, paralysis, poison, sleep effects, and stunning. 

• Not subject to nonlethal damage, ability drain, or energy drain. Immune to damage to its physical ability scores (Constitution, Dexterity, and Strength), as well as to exhaustion and fatigue effects. 

• Cannot heal damage on its own. Negative energy (such as an inflict spell) can heal cryx.  Positive energy damages cryx. Cryx are susceptible to positive energy damage and negative energy appears to heal them.  They also can be healed through Repair spells and through the Necrotic Alchemical liquid. Necralchemy?

• Immunity to any effect that requires a Fortitude save (unless the effect also works on objects or is harmless). 

• Not at risk of death from massive damage, but is immediately destroyed when reduced to 0 hit points. 

• Not affected by raise dead and reincarnate spells or abilities. Resurrection, true resurrection, llimited wish and wish can affect the cryx. These spells turn cryx creatures back into the living creatures they were before becoming cryx.

• Do not breathe, eat, or sleep.
