A Psychopomp is a spirit, often a fey or an angel, that appears to mortals in order to guide their spirits into the afterlife. Celtic Mythology in particular is full of them, like the Banshee and the Dullahan.

In Pathfinder, Psychopomps are the Outsiders that serve Pharasma, Goddess of Life and Death, and thusly their entire identity is bound up in keeping the souls of the dead moving from the material plane to the Boneyard to be sent on to the afterlife.
