Strix are a Pathfinder race of grey or black-skinned winged humanoids who live in a mountainous region of southwestern Cheliax known as Devil's Perch. They are fiercely territorial and often get into skirmishes with Chelish army patrols. In 2e their population has expanded and spread out, with enclaves dotting Cheliax and surrounding nations. Inner Sea Bestiary revealed that they are a magically modified slave race created by a race of owl people called Syrinx.

In Starfinder, most of them live in a gigantic spire on Verces called Qidel.
