The younger, smaller cousins of eaglewolves, falconfoxes have the head and wings of a falcon and the bodies, legs and tail of a fox. They are sleek and agile hunters in both the sky and in the forest.

A falconfox's coat ranges in color from a dark to a ruddy brown with occasional flecks of white; its beak is a light tan color. A full-grown male can stand as tall as 4 feet and weigh up to 300 pounds, with a wingspan of 8 feet. They fly through the sky, hunting small prey, and also have the ability to hunt on the ground as foxes, tucking their wings up against their bodies.

Falconfoxes build nests at the tops of tall trees, where they live in pairs and raise chicks/pups. Some of their young are born as an falcon or a fox, and are fed to the others of the litter who retain both traits.


Falconfoxes attack prey smaller than themselves, and often present little danger to humans. But if they hunger, they will occasionally hunt halflings and gnomes. In combat, falconfoxes are ferocious, often fighting to the death, though they have been known to flee to the skies to escape the field of battle. They slash with claws and bite with their beaks, nipping at their prey until they reach a vital artery.
