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.

Giant eagles are large-sized magical beasts that resemble massive eagles. They are intelligent creatures that stand about 15 feet tall and possess a wingspan of 30 feet. A giant eagle weighs 300 pounds (30 bulk).

Giant eagles consider themselves to be the defenders of mountaintops and will make fast friends with any who respect and aid them in times of need.
