Eagles are large birds of prey similar to real-life eagles. Lord Ardrian Celtigar is said to have a trained sea eagle.[1] Houses Condon, Graves, and Mallister have eagles in their sigils. The Mallisters also control the Cape of Eagles.


The wood dancers of the children of the forest are said to have called upon eagles to fight on their behalf.[2]
