The eulyar is an avian species native to the dewdrop peaks. Large birds with long wingspans, they are the apex predators of the skies, with a terrifying call and sharp beaks capable of slicing easily through flesh.


The Eulyar is a large bird with blue-grey feathers that somewhat blend in to the skies in which they hunt. Their beaks are almost three times the size of their heads, and have the power to crush stone. They sharpen these beaks on the floating islands of their biomes to ensure efficacy when hunting.
They have deceptively small eyes, which do provide a surprisingly wide range of vision. They do not see colour, however - they have thermal vision, allowing them to see heat and separate clouds from prey.

Dietary Needs & Habits

Eulyar can eat nearly any of the creatures in the dewdrop peaks that are smaller than them. They can't eat giant creatures, like cloudwhales, but do enjoy smaller ones such as cloud worms.


Though most regard it to be unwise, some angels choose to take in Eulyar as pets. They require a lot of care and training, and as the birds are almost 3 times the height of most angels, they can be incredibly difficult to control. This does not deter some from domesticating them, riding the birds through the skies, allowing them to travel longer and further than they could on their own. When successful, this domestication is highly respected. However, it is often unsuccessful, resulting in severe injury and ruined pride.
