Appearance & PersonalityEdit
Achaierai are massive, fifteen-foot-tall birds that stand on four stilt-like legs. They have round, bird-like bodies, covered in feathers that range from brown to red in color. They have sharp claws and a beak that gleams like burnished metal.
Achaierai are creatures of evil. Though they roam the wilds of Lamannia, some are known to cross over to Eberron via a manifest zone. They are cruel, clever, and predatory, and enjoy torturing their prey before they eat them.
Achaierai attack using their taloned legs and their razor-sharp beak. Though flightless, they move quickly, springing into combat. Achaierai can also emit a black, toxic cloud that confuses and distracts their prey. Creatures of evil, achaierai do more damage to good-aligned foes, and are resistant to spells. They possess darkvision.
