Vortex hunters are mysterious humanoid creatures from the Astral Plane. They are bizarre in that poisons seem to do nothing, they shrug off heat and cold like it wasn't there, and none have ever been observed eating, or drinking. They have been observed performing a kind of sleep, comparable to the Trance of an elf in that they never do it for longer than 4 hours, yet they seem just as well rested as a human after 8 hours of rest. They wear odd black suits of armour, detailed in bright red and green, the intricacy of which seems to indicate rank among its own kind. Their most frightening ability is that they can return to life after they are killed, always finding their way to their home plane like carrier pigeons.

Aberrant Nature A vortex hunter doesn't require air, food, or drink.
