Skywings

Overview and General Description

Skywings are the aerial predators of the skies, growing in size up to 1.2m with an average wingspan of 4m. They pack vicious predatory instincts with a keen eyesight and the guile to attack virtually everything that presents itself.

Skywings are usually a deep shade of blue and have leathery skin. Their wings are often mottled, with males showing a striking patterning of greens, blues and purples whereas the females typically bear simple blue mottling.

Their heads are crested with a long snout that ends in a thicken chitin like substance that tapers into a sharp point, allowing them to spear their prey. They also have four eyes, set quiet high up on their heads and they also posses two sets of wings and a single pair of legs ending in hooked claws.

Predators

The Skywing has no natural predators short of man. Their meat makes up a small percentage of the fringe settlement diets, although they are rarely eaten outside of upmarket Prain restaurents where their meat is considered a delicacy.

Distribution & Breeding

Skywings can be found throughout the temperate zones of Techniconica and to a lesser extent, the southern polar regions also maintain a colony of Skywings.

Breeding is done 'on-the-wing' with two Skywings mating in mid-flight in a extended mating dance. It is typical for one female to mate several times with different males before finding a suitable nesting site to deposit its clutch of eggs. Females will often then stay in the vicinity to guard their clutch.
