Familiars are companions of wizards and sorcerers. These can be normal animals like panthers and pigs, but they can also be the strange creatures (Imps, Mephits, pixies, giant spiders, eyeballs, small dragons, etc.) Unlike creatures summoned by arcane or divine spell (Elementals, Planar Allies, Undead…), familiars do not unsummon while resting. They remain summoned until they are killed or unsummoned. When familiar is killed, his summoner receives some damage but he can summon new familiar, if he rested before combat.

A familiar is summoned through the use of the spell find familiar.
