ABOUT

Man-sized, six-legged beasts, the Cunalrur are swift runners and able fliers. They have thin bodies, covered in light fur-like feathers. An equally lengthy, prehensile tail gives them advantage on dangerous inclines. They have thick, dark claws that serve them in their purchase in trees, cliffs and the like and can also act as weapons. They have a thin membrane growing between their hind and forelegs which enables them to fly or glide for great distances. Their brows are high, shaped more like a wolf’s, but rather than a snout they possess an eagle-like beak. Whether climbing, flying or running, they display tremendous speed.

Territorial Guardians. Cunalrur are highly prized guard animals as they are highly territorial, possess exceptional vision, and have minor telepathic abilities. These allow them to function with a sort of hive mind, projecting images of what they see to other members of their pack or anyone else with whom they wish to communicate. Vocally, they produce only a hollow howl which is used only when they are in great pain or issuing a warning of danger to their pack or master.

Non-Aggressive Packs. As pack animals, the Cunalrur travel in groups of up to four. They reproduce asexually, laying 1-2 eggs about every two years. These they bury or ide in a secure place and leave them. The eggs mature on their own and hatch as a fully mature adult Cunalrur in 6-7 weeks, immediately seeking out others of their own kind to join a pack.

The Cunalrur are not particularly aggressive, but can be dangerous when hunting, cornered or otherwise forced to fight. They will rear up on their hind legs and use claws to grab the target, ripping and tearing viciously until the target is dead or they are removed.
