Phalynx are a type of cat-like centurion found in Bastion. Pelodis describes them as efficient, obedient, and easy to work with. Phalynx units excel in combat. They are thoroughly trained in taking foes down by the legs, as well as hunting down beasts gone awry. They have precise detection mechanisms that allow for excellent scouting. The kyrian sometimes use them as mounts, and some among the Ascended keep them as pets. The armored phalynx in particular—a rare marvel of steward engineering—are favorite companions of the Ascended's strongest warriors, since they are both fearless and vicious.
Little is known about the origins of phalynx technology, which is taught more akin to religion than technology. When an armored phalynx is forged, stewards clap their hammers together as a show of reverence for the skill required to create one.
Some belong to the Forsworn.
