Nurture (Su)

When a vicunal uses its healing channel ability, it can choose to nurture one of the creatures it healed. If it does so, the vicunal loses its fast healing and grants that fast healing to the nurtured creature. This effect lasts for a number of rounds equal to the vicunal’s Charisma modifier (3 rounds for a typical vicunal).

Speak with Animals (Su)

A vicunal can communicate with animals and use language-dependent effects on them.


Environment any forests or hills
Organization solitary, pair, or herd (3–12)

Agathions, who have humanoid forms with animal aspects, form from the souls of mortals who reached an enlightened state and became infused with holy power. Most remain content to meditate and explore their home plane of Nirvana, but many others visit the Material Plane to combat evil, especially evil that threatens the natural world.

Four-armed and four-eyed vicunals resemble ruthigs and share ruthigs’ preference for traveling in groups. This variation of herd mentality makes vicunals intuitive therapists who tirelessly attend to their companions’ physical and emotional injuries. Despite their tenacity and indefatigable skirmishing tactics, these agathions struggle to overcome powerful foes. In these cases, vicunals typically recruit mortal agents willing to and capable of neutralizing the evil.

Enlightened Medicinals

As an extension of their supernatural healing abilities, agathions have developed specialized medicines infused with the holy properties of Nirvana. These enlightened medicinals follow the rules for medicinals on pages 231–232 of the Starfinder Core Rulebook, though they’re hybrid items that use Life Science or Mysticism as the associated skills for crafting.


An insulivate moderates electrical impulses, channeling excess energy safely out of the body. When you take or are injected with an insulivate, you gain a bonus to saving throws against effects with the electricity descriptor as well as effects that deal electricity damage. In addition, you gain a bonus to your EAC against attacks that deal electricity damage. Both bonuses are equal to the medicinal’s tier, and the medicinal’s effects last for a number of minutes equal to 10 times the medicinal’s tier.


A revitilate contains a spark of Nirvana’s vitality that activates when it senses death is near. A revitilate you take or are injected with provides no immediate benefit but remains in your system for a number of hours equal to the medicinal’s tier. The first time you would spend Resolve Points to stabilize, you can subtract the medicinal’s tier from your maximum RP total when determining how many RP you must spend. The first time you spend 1 RP to stay in the fight after using the medicinal, you regain a number of Hit Points equal to 1d8 times the medicinal’s tier. Once the medicinal provides both benefits, its effects end.
