13 This spectacular bird is a giant eagle, a massive, intelligent cousin of the more common golden eagle. This result reveals all magical beast traits.

18 In combat, giant eagles typically use tactics similar to their smaller cousins, diving unseen from a great height to attack their prey. Though not the most agile of flyers, their keen senses allow them to react quickly to danger and they have an uncanny knack for evading magical effects such as fireballs. Giant eagles speak Common and Auran.

23 Giant eagles are highly prized as aerial steeds, and as such their eggs and young can fetch thousands of gold pieces. Some societies outlaw the trading in these sentient creatures as it is considered slavery, and giant eagles will often fight to the death to protect their young. Many giant eagles have been persuaded to act as mounts however, when the arrangement has been a beneficial one for both parties.
