Malevolent beasts, yixan resemble long-necked, half-starved coursing hounds sheathed in blue-black scales as hard as iron. Their eyes are the cold green of witch-fire, and their long and narrow muzzles are lined with teeth as sharp as razors.

Possessed of a dim and malignant intelligence, yixan prefer to hunt in pairs or packs. Their claws, while sharp, are not used for attacking; their bite is venomous, requiring a save the round following a successful attack or else the victim suffers 2-8 additional points of damage. One in ten yixan cause paralysis with their venom as well as hit point damage, lasting for four turns. A magical weapon is required to harm a yixan.
