Strix are females who often are wizards or mages who acquired vampiric abilities as part of a pact with some power usually (but not exclusively) an evil one. At the GM's discretion the level of magery given in the pact can take the total magery level of the character ABOVE the normal maximum the campaign has. They're supposed to be used as villains and this is an edge for them.
