Aventi are clever warriors who think in three dimensions, preferring to flank opponents by approaching them from both above and below, which tends to confuse surface-dwellers. They usually wear leather armor studded with copper rivets or tough shells, and wield piercing weapons such as spears and short swords, which are not affected by water resistance.

Creatures with the aquatic subtype always have swim speeds and thus can move in water without making Swim checks. An aquatic creature can breathe underwater. It cannot also breathe air unless it has the amphibious special quality.
