Big Book of Nasties: Bastet


The Bastet are an ancient people supposedly created by the Egyptian Gods in the time of prehistory. They served as priests and warriors for the pharaohs of old. Today, the Bastet inhabit jungles on the outskirts of what was once the Egyptian Empire, and otherworldly planes that are just now being rediscovered.

The typical bastet resembles a fur covered human sporting a tail with the head of a big cat. They are of short to average height, and tend towards a slender build. A common trait of their gaze is that they rarely blink when first encountering strangers, or prey. While their pelts range throughout all big cat morphology in terms of coloration, the most common pelt seen resembles that of the jaguar. There are just as many with grey or solid fur colorations, although black and pale white furs are the most rare.

About Byron D. Molix

I am an information technology professional in Missouri. I've been an avid fan of fantasy and science fiction novels, comic books, pen and paper role-playing games, computer games and console video games for the last two decades. My dream would be to one day make a comfortable living while having the time to pursue writing (novels, rpgs, etc.) as a full-time hobby.
