Physical Description

The ekril appears as a blend of lizard and bird. It is generally bird shaped, but its hide is a mix of scales and feathers that balance each other, dividing the body into sections. It has a three foot wingspan and long, splayed tail of colorful feathers. It's saurian head is crowned by two small horns. The lizard snout ends in a strong bird-like beak.

Combat

Ekril only fight when cornered. They will peck at the eyes of their opponent if possible. However, usually they flee.

Geographic Distribution and Habitat

Ekril inhabit lightly forested hills and sparse forest. They prefer warmer climates and can be found from Talis to the Coalition. Ekrils are also found in great abundance in the Trackless Mire and Corvenia.

Ecology

Scholars believe it to be a natural beast, perhaps some sort of evolutionary offshoot. Ekril meat is quite tasty and eaten by many races as are the large blue greyish eggs.
