Emissary of the Starfallen1
A distorted replica of an earthly wasp grown nightmarishly large and electrified, this slate-blue insectoform crackles and buzzes as it approaches.

These alien-appearing insectoid creatures are the would-be emissaries and heralds of the nascent demi-deity Najim the Starfallen, whose gigantic form has been hidden from the eyes of mortals for millennia, beneath the earth. Emissaries of Najim resemble giant wasps but are more mechanical looking, and possess an electrical sting generated by their internal organs- their whole bodies buzzing and crackling with dark energy. It is likely that they are a low-level lifeform on Najim’s planet and dimension of origin, maybe some source of food or mascot for the dominant races there.

Emissaries of Najim are extremely skilled hunters, psychically tracking their prey and stunning them with flares from their dark light power. This power and other evidence suggests that their home environment is extremely dark- they also are capable of surviving indefinitely in the outer regions of the Void of space.

As emissaries of Najim are, as far as has been reported, extremely rare on the Material Plane, it is unknown what their feeding and reproductive habits are, but it can be conjectured that they are similar to a giant wasp’s. Emissaries of Najim are somewhat intelligent, unlike their insectile analogs, and can be assumed to be very cunning in their hunting and defensive behavior, even more so if it is discovered that they possess social behavior or a hive mind.

On Porphyra
Since the rumors of the discovery of “The Hidden God”, Najim, sightings of emissaries of Najim has increased, especially in the Purple Mountain region, and northern Hesteria. It has been noted that they are beginning to spread throughout Porphyra be means of access to the Underdeep, for emissaries of Najim cleave to the cover of dark, airless spaces. An established cult-cell of Najim the Starfallen will undoubtedly have one of these creatures as a protector.
