Peryton combine the features of a stag, wolf, and great birds of prey. They are intelligent predators who prey on those weaker then themselves. Their delicacy is humanoids. Especially the taste of a still beating heart. Peryton are solitary creatures who hate even their own kind.
In a rare instance a female will sometimes lead a strong family flock. The flock is usually composed of females with up six fledglings. This flock will attract an unpaired male who attacks hoping to make off with a female. Mating for the Peryton is brutal affair. Usually ending with the death of the male mate. Afterwards the female lays a single black egg and 7 months later it hatches.
