In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, celestial creatures are magical versions of regular creatures (such as wolves, bears, horses, elks, badgers and so on) which live in the Upper planes.

Publication history[edit]

The celestial creature template first appeared in the third edition Monster Manual (2000),[1] and the revised 3.5 Monster Manual (2003).


Celestial creatures fairly closely resemble their normal-plane counterparts but typically have a more imposing, if not godly and mysterious, appearance. They also have considerably increased intelligence. Many celestial creatures are pets or servants or spies or such of gods and celestials.

Celestial creatures cannot speak, but understand Common and Celestial.

They are regarded as neutral good in alignment.

Their evil, Lower plane dwelling counterparts are fiendish creatures.
