Because it is a loner and is generally confined to a

subterranean domain, the Echo Hawk (S. "Soraew Lomin"; pl. "Sereiw Lemin") lacks the Dire Wolfs alarming reputation. In many ways, however, the Hawks are more dangerous. Echo Hawks combine incredible infra-vision with a locating sound retrieval organ similar to the radar bats employ. This enables them to spot their prey with unparalleled precision, and gives them a means to avoid colliding with rock faces and abutments. Without these adaptations, the Echo Hawk could not employ a two to three foot wingspan, or fly at speeds of up to ninety miles per hour, abilities which make it a lethal hunter. One can identify the Echo Hawk by its lack of pigmentation, for it grows white feathers and has colorless skin and a clearish beak. A fleshy cere at the base of the beak holds their large, external nostrils. In addition, the Echo Hawk has the strong musculature of an large eagle and is less gracile than more common Hawk varieties. Both its talons and its downwardly curved beak are unusually long, hard, and sharp. Because of its strength and speed, these Hawks can penetrate armor. Echo Hawks prey on rodents, fish, and whatever larger sources of meat they can slay. Few will turn down the opportunity to feast on fresh or rotted carrion and, in a sense, they will tear into anything that remotely suits their carnivorous thirsts. Like the Chamber Bird, they live in high roosts; however, the Echo Hawk lines his nook with a deep bedding of dead vines, dried mushrooms, and hair. Since they are long-lived and reach maturity very slowly, they are few; their clutches contain but one or two eggs. These are guarded by the female Echo Hawk, who are larger and more fearsome than her mate.
