Description(s)

Descriptions are example(s) from a single individual. Variations may be numerous, and dependent upon species, gender, age, location, and other variables.

Falcon (Counterweight Continent, Lower Ramtops, Hublands, Uberwald)

This is a sleek bird of the raptor variety, designed to rule the skies and hunt down any woodland creature small enough to be lifted. He has sleek tawny feathers with black markings along the edges. The bird's head has an almost bluish look with large gold eyes that can pierce through the thickest forest canopy in search of prey.

  • Alignment: Neutral

Falcon ["Hobby"] (Chronides Farm)

This green lanner hobby is a swift and elegant falcon with long, narrow wings. Characteristically a dark slaty grey, it has a somewhat mottled chest with green, blue, and white patterns, as well as a white collar. The feathers on its head and main plumage are dark grey with some grey bands on the underside of its tail feathers. It's an amazing flyer capable of extraordinary aerial maneouvers - most of its prey is caught on the wing including insects, small birds and even swallows.

  • Alignment: Details needed.

Falcon ["Saker" / "Red Rock"] (Chronides Farm)

This irritating saker falcon is about the size of a small hawk, but indeed is a falcon. It has a brown malar area and a black cap too. It is chiefly ashy grey with some lighter brown on its upper side. Its front is delicately patterned with brown, black and off-white., and has some horizontal barring on its underside. Its tail is a dark grey with rather inconspicuous black banding and small white tips. A fast flyer, this irritating hunter preys on small to mid-sized birds, insects and small animals.

  • Alignment: Details needed.
