Four-legged bird creatures of demonic origin. Their bodies are small and round; their legs are very long and metal-hard. They rarely attack after people without provocation but are sadistically cruel to those who disturb them. In addition to fresh meat, they also like to eat metal.

Combat Effectiveness Rating: 36 (OR 22 and PR 14).
Notes: Truly evil. Unwilling to negotiate. Due to their demonic origins, they are affected by items that specifically harm demons (such as demonbane weapons), but they are not subject to Banish or Pentagram spells, nor are they affected by True Faith. They often keep large but unintelligent dragonets as pets and guard-beasts; they are fiercely loyal to each other. Due to their weird anatomy, their torso is at -4 to hit but there is no penalty to hit their legs.
