Sphinxes are enigmatic creatures with great, feathery wings like a falcon, leonine lower bodies, and the upper torsos of attractive human women. They are known for their love of knowledge and riddles in particular. All sphinxes are territorial, but generally give intruders plenty of warning before attacking.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Technically, the sphinx referred to in this article is known as a gynosphinx, a term most sphinxes find insulting. The androsphinx has a male upper body, is generally much less intelligent, and is actually a completely separate species. A typical gynosphinx is about 10 feet long and weighs about 800 pounds. Most sphinxes fight on the ground, using their wings to help them pounce much as lions do.[1]

Habitat & SocietyEdit

Sphinxes are the divinely-appointed guardians of Osirion. They are said to have created the first living monoliths, and knowledge of their language is necessary to become a living monolith.[2]
