Breath Weapon [two-actions] The thrasfyr’s serpent tail breathes a blast of flame in a 50-foot cone, dealing 10d12 fire damage (DC 40 basic Reflex save). It can’t use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.

Rider’s Bond [one-action] (divination, mental, primal) The thrasfyr designates one creature as its rider by touching the rider with its claw. The thrasfyr and rider can communicate with each other telepathically at any range on the same plane and are aware of each other’s present state, direction from each other, distance from each other, and any conditions affecting either.

Tangling Chains [two-actions] (incapacitation, primal, transmutation) The thrasfyr thrashes its chains in all directions. Each creature in a 15-foot emanation takes 18d6 bludgeoning damage (DC 38 basic Reflex save); creatures that fail are immobilized until the start of the thrasfyr’s next turn. The thrasfyr can’t use Tangling Chains or make chain Strikes for 1d4 rounds.

Whirling Frenzy [two-actions] The thrasfyr makes a jaws Strike, a horn Strike, and two claw Strikes, each against a different target. Each attack counts toward the thrasfyr’s multiple attack penalty, but the penalty doesn’t increase until after all the attacks.


Originally engineered by the Eldest as living weapons, the Tane are a group of mythical creatures whose might is capable of bringing entire cities to heel. The jabberwock and the sard are two other examples of the Tane in this book, but others include creatures like the bandersnatch, the jubjub bird, and arguably the most powerful of them all, the unique monster known as Leviathan.

As bizarre in appearance as they are ferocious, thrasfyrs resemble six-limbed bears with bull-like horns, draconic scales, and a fire-breathing serpent for a tail. Every thrasfyr is wrapped in animated chains psychically linked to the creature’s mind.
