Types of SphinxesEdit

There are various different types of sphinxes


Androsphinxes are always male and are the most common of the species of sphinx. They have razorsharp claws, and a gruff demeanor.


Criosphinxes are always male, but these sphinxes are less intelligent than the other species of sphinxes. These sphinxes use their horns to attack, as well as their claws.


Gynosphinxes are always females, and are the female counterpart to the androsphinxes. They constantly seek out new intellectual challenges.


Heiracosphinxes are always male, and are always evil. They enjoy ripping creatures to shreds more than challenging them with puzzles.[1]


Loquasphinxes can be male or female. They speak with truename magic, using it to find the truth from its targets.[3]
