Eagles are large, majestic birds of prey that are often seen as symbols of nobility or as divine messengers. They are generally larger than other birds, with a powerful build and heavier head and beak. They possess broad wings allowing for faster flight. Eagles build their nests on tall trees or high cliffs. These nests are called eyries.


Environment temperate mountains

Avians are feathered birds. These animals are mostly harmless to humanoids, as they feed on seeds and insects.

The raptors are the larger “birds of prey,” such as eagles, hawks, owls, and harriers. While the normal raptors subsist on tiny mammals, some worlds possess raptors of giant size who are a danger to humanoids species.

Eagles hunt their prey from the sky using their enhanced vision, which is able to see small animals from great distances away. They capture food with their long talons and powerful beaks.

Eagles weigh between 8 and 15 pounds (1 to 2 bulk) with an average wingspan of 7 feet. There are over 60 different species of eagles of varying sizes.

The Eagle build can also be used to represent other raptors – birds of prey – including falcons, hawks, and owls.
