War of the Ages‎ > ‎Bestiary‎ > ‎


Resembling great lions with large golden wings, sphinxes were discovered to be completely unsuitable for riding. Although typically peaceful, sphinxes refused to tolerate attempts to control them by high elves. They are loners and have lifespans rivaling high elves, but they spend their days in quiet contemplation. Sphinxes may rouse themselves from their meditation to help those that prove themselves worthy.
