A shrike is the beast-bird of the mountains. A bear-hawk hybrid, armed with ten seven inch, razor sharp claws and a flesh-tearing beak. Their enhanced senses make them a fearsome predator next to the Unagi. Though dangerous, they have been proven to be able to be tamed, and serve as mounts to the Snowpeak Drakoans along with the Snow Stalker. Though this occurrence is quite rare, it is considered to be a sign of courage to achieve this goal. Because it lives mainly in the mountains, the forest and people have never seen or heard of a shrike.
Behind the ScenesEdit
A shrike was originally depicted form a creature in the FATE computer game series. Though the name and description is identical, i am making it look like a bear a little more. The one in FATE is more bird-like with the shape of a bear.
