Archons are a race of outsiders from a heavenly realm dedicated to the cause of goodness and order.

They are tasked with the protection of their realm and with all those on the mortal world who believe in good and law. They abhor evil and anarchy and are the natural enemies of demons, devils, and other fiendish creatures.

Hound archons are the well-disciplined soldiers and sentinels of their heavenly realm. They are well-trained in the fight against evil and show no mercy to fiends. Against mortals, however, they are loath to use lethal force, even against those dedicated to evil. They believe that mortals should be the judges of their own kind while on the mortal worlds.

Hound archons look like well-muscled humanoids with canine heads. They can also assume the form of a wolf, dog, or other canine. While on the mortal world, these archons often assume a canine form to subtly help good mortals as a “clever pet.”
