Bauh-yin were intelligent creatures. They were mute and were unable to vocally communicate. Despite this, they used signs and body language to communicate with others. Due to their hatred of water, they avoided crossing any body of water if they could.
Bauh-yin had the innate ability to duplicate the effects of the fear, gate, invisibility, shape change, and teleport without error spells. They were immune to cold-, electricity-, and fire-based spells. Due to their hatred of water, they fled when faced with a water-based spell.
Among the peasants of T'u Lung, bauh-yin were considered a good omen for the poor and a bad omen for the rich and powerful. Several riots by the peasants against their overlords were known to have been triggered by just the mere presence of a bauh-yin. Bauh-yin were the servants of the Black Leopard. They appeared when summoned by him and acted as his spies throughout Kara-Tur.
Bauh-yin were originally devout members of the Black Leopard Cult.
