Urdu Guardian Angel
The Syragh is a myth stemming from ancient Roman Urdu poetry. It's name is similar to "Sirah" which refers to a ceremonial strand of beads, used to ward off evil spirits. Similarly, the Syragh is thought of an an angelic, or light-based being, and an opposing force to evil or dark spirits.
It is thought that the Syragh is a Tulpa-like expression of the human soul, and is somehow forged by rituals and meditation. The precise methods said to lead to the creation of a Syragh are carefully protected secrets. Once formed, it acts like a personal guardian angel, fending off all forms of danger and harm from it's human host. It is also thought that a steep sacrifice must be made to give the Syragh life. again, details remain wrapped in ancient lore.
The image to the left is one artists interpretation of the Syragh. Although speculative, it does depict the general image of the syragh as described in the Urdu poems; a glowing, ethereal humanoid with wings and visable skeletal structure, the reasons for whch are unknown.
While most likely the subject of complete fiction, the Syragh is one of the most fascinatingly misty legends to come to light recently, and reflects the ever universal themes of good and evil, angels and demons. We hope to learn more about it.

Beings of light, such as Angels and this creature wouldn't feed off of their hosts. In mythology it's usually beings of darkness, such as succubi or poltergeists of sorts that drain away a human's life energy.

If this is a religous object then I seems like it's forged by compacting a soul to some sort of charm. I would presume the charm could determin what soul is placed, like using a close item of a dead family member. This would be like a co-exeistence, some what like biology teaches us, where the two benifit eachother. The soul can exist with a human as protects it from dubious forces. It's like having a gaurdian angle within a charm.
