They are naturally incorporeal, but may take a true physical form to fight for the druid or shaman who called them. Fighting a spirit beast is harrowing, as the creature phases in and out of existence, rarely appearing in the same place twice during battle. Spirit beasts appear like regular animals, but bear glowing auras and are slightly translucent, even when visible.[1]

  2. Or perhaps the child of a Wild God due to them being relatively powerful spirits that can manifest in the plane of the living just like Wild Gods do.

The following creatures are believed to be spirit beasts:
