Leskylors are nearly 10 feet long, have a 30-foot wingspan, and weigh 700 pounds. They speak their own language as well as Celestial and Draconic.

This great tigerlike feline has snowy-white fur with bands of pale blue, icy-blue eyes that flicker with intelligence, and white-feathered wings. Its pearly white claws and teeth are long and razor-sharp.


When it spots an evil creature in its protected domain, the leskylor takes to the air, often hiding within the clouds until an opportune moment to strike presents itself. Unless the intruder is already known to it, the leskylor usually makes a single warning pass indicating its intention to rid the area of its presence. If the creature makes no effort to leave the area or stands its ground, the leskylor swoops in for the kill. The leskylor uses its frost breath first, then strikes with its claws and bite.

Frost Breath (Su): Cone-shaped burst of frost, 30 feet long, three times per day; damage 3d6; Reflex half DC 16.

Pounce (Ex): If a leskylor charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +11 melee, damage 1d8+3.

Spell-Like Abilities: 1/day—blessed sight, cause fear (DC 12), cure moderate wounds (DC 13), eyes of the avoral, hold person (DC 13), obscuring mist, vision of heaven. Caster level 6th. The save DCs are Wisdom-based.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the leskylor must hit with a claw or bite attack. If it wins the grapple check, it estab- lishes a hold and can rake.
