A roc is an enormous legendary bird of prey, often white or golden, reputed to have been able to carry off and eat pogs. A roc generally prefers warm mountainous terrain. Rocs are usually solitary, but sometimes found in mated pairs, having 1-3 young at a time.
Characteristics and habits Edit
Rocs make their nests in high, temperate mountains. A solitary one is likely to be patrolling its environment or hunting for itself or a baby, and typically ignores non-threatening creatures. It most commonly attacks by diving from a great height, but if it cannot do so, slashes at an opponent's head with its claws and beak.
Rocs, like many similar creatures, are prized for their value as aerial steeds. To tame one, the roc must have a friendly attitude to the rider/tamer. Riding one requires an exotic saddle, and six weeks of training. Sometimes Rocs are raised to be mounts from birth, but Roc parents defend their nests to the death.
