The sleek sky soldier.

The sleek sky soldier lives in the tallest, oldest, knotted tree in the forests of


He's always on the lookout and he sleeps with one shiny, jem like black eye open, so no one

Escapes his notice.

His talons are terrifyingly sharpened to a glistening point, and his feathers are the

Sleekest in the world.

He wears a small pair of brown leather flying goggles, keeping his eyes clear from the

Blood spills, bronze and silver wing guards make his wings his almost sharpest weapon.

Look out you low-life scum of a rodent, because the Sleek Sky Soldiers raven battle call will be the last thing you hear, its power will slit your brain in two.

He has the mind of god. His trickery is a match to the lord Herms.

Cutting and cutting. As the light of life fades from his preys eyes, he absorbs the knowledge and life power from the dead one.

SWOOP-then SLICE! SLICE! That's the sound of the head of a small animal falling to the ground as his body is flown home for tea.
