With a body length of nearly 3 feet and a wingspan of 8 feet, the blood eagle is without a doubt the largest eagle you've ever seen. The body is covered with brown and black feathers and its powerful wings raise dust whenever the eagle nears ground. Large black eyes gleam with intelligence and claws sharp enough to rip apart a bear give this creature a distinctively threatening appearance.[1]

Between the years 5101 and 5103, blood eagles were the Unofficial method of entering town for characters that arrived with no coins (to pay the drawbridge toll) and no crystal amulets (to return to Wehnimer's Landing.) This was accomplished via the blood eagles' maneuver attack, in which the eagle would dive at an adventurer and send him or her crashing into the Citadel's ravine. Before this time, blood eagles were known to drop silver coins when slain, but the town guru of the time, Bradach, changed the creatures so they no longer dropped coins.
