A gynosphinx was a female sphinx. While not as physically powerful as an androsphinx, the gynosphinx was still a capable combatant and possessed a number of magical powers. The gynosphinx was the sole female sphinx subrace.
Gynosphinxes preferred to pursue intellectual ideals. They loved to collect knowledge and ancient lore and delighted in solving riddles, puzzles, and mental challenges.
Gynosphinxes were favored by the dwarven deities Dugmaren Brightmantle and Vergadain and the Mulhorandi goddess Isis, who would often send them as messengers to their faithful.
