A buzzing little bead of light the size of a small marble whizzes around the contours of your head, almost seeming attracted as it were to the magic items you are wearing on your person. More and more gather as time progresses, ready to leave you a desiccated husk and scatter you to the winds.
A Pyx is a tiny creature native to the astral plane. It is drawn to sources of arcane energy, which pretty much means everything that emits a magical aura like magic items. It has negligible weight and is equivalent to a glowing bead no more than a quarter to a half of an inch in diameter.
Pyx are actually quite friendly normally, and will refrain from attacking unless they are continually provoked.
Improved Evasion: Pyxes enjoy the benefits of improved evasion.
Magic Immunity (Ex): Pyxes are immune to all magical effects that allow spell resistance.
Shock (Ex): Often used as a deterrent, a Pyx is able to channel its energy in an omnidirectional burst, dealing 10d6 electrical damage to any creature within a 10 ft. radius. When using this special ability however, a Pys loses its ability to attack for 2d4 rounds.
