Throughout the history of the Free Peoples, the Great Eagles had often lent assistance at critical moments. These great and intelligent birds soared high above mountain ranges, keeping an ever vigilant watch on affairs below. They were somewhat aloof from the activities of ground-dwellers, intervening only when the stakes involved were very high indeed. The Great Eagles lived in the rocky crags in the Misty Mountains nesting where no mountaineer could have ever reached their eggs and young . These powerful birds had a reputation for wisdom , but they rarely conversed with other races. They recognized the eldest and mightiest of their kind as their Lord and reported anything significant that they saw to him.
