Drift Boost (Ex)

A sondria can attach themself to a starship of any size and lend that ship the use of their slip drive, allowing the ship to travel through Hyperspace. The ship uses Hyperspace engine rating for the sondria’s slip drive (7 for a CR 14 sondria) and needs to remain stationary for only 6 seconds before engaging the drive.

Drift Dash (Ex)

A sondria who scores a critical hit with its claw attack can slip through Hyperspace and teleport adjacent to a secondary target within 10 feet, making another claw attack against that target at a –4 penalty; this does not require an action. The sondria can use this ability a maximum of two times per round.

Rebuild (Sp)

Three or more sondrias can spend 10 minutes chanting in a series of low-frequency clips and chirps to use reincarnate as a spell-like ability on one target.

Targets reincarnated through this ability are always reincarnated as androids and do not roll on the reincarnate table to randomly determine their new body.

Vibrochitter (Ex)

A sondria’s vibrochitter is a ranged attack with a range increment of 30 feet that targets EAC and has the blast weapon special property.


Environment any
Organization solitary, sequence (2, 3, 5, or 8), or delegation (1 wyspiria plus 2 iridias)

Wyspirias are dispatched across the galaxy. They stand 7 feet tall with chassis of multicolored glass, and a multitude of coiled, rootlike tentacles cascading from their waists. As a result of the resemblance they bear to floating trees, they are sometimes called trees of knowledge. Wyspirias use their tendrils to plug themselves into people and machines alike—a direct connection that allows them to quickly transfer huge quantities of data between connected people and devices.

Whereas iridias come to the Prime Material Plane offering gifts of knowledge and technology to mortals, many believe wyspirias do the opposite, collecting libraries of secrets and information about the galaxy for the unseen purposes of spectra. Rarely, wyspirias are said to appear during the peace talks of warring civilizations, connecting the opposing delegates and enabling them to understand each other directly. Many believe these spectra intervene only when they deem the risk of losing technology or information from a conflict too great.

Sondrias are a new variety of spectra primarily encountered inside Hyperspace. They are small and sharply featured, with six arms, razor talons, and round, flat, owlish faces. Sometimes called Drift pixies, their presence is always accompanied by a grainy, low-pitched hum or buzzing noise. Sondrias use their own voices more often than other types of spectra, and sequences of sondrias have a habit of speaking at the same time in overlapping sentences that are difficult to pick apart.

Like the larger and more formidable aspecnas, sondrias patrol Hyperspace to help lost travelers and rescue marooned escape pods or starships whose Drift engines malfunction, latching onto the vessels and using their slip drives to boost them back to the Material Plane.
