Githyanki Kith’rak | Monster Guide for Dungeon & Dragon

Militarized githyanki cultures assign ranks and responsibilities to citizens. Groups of ten warriors follow the commands of sarths, while ten sarths obey the commands of a mighty kith’rak. These champions undergo torturous training and psionic testing until they can command the respect of their underlings.
