Arcane Eagle

In his treatise “On the Nature of the Spirit World”, the great scholar Sar-Aggreth made a tentative classification of Spirits. He noticed that greater Spirits often took the form of majestic birds. It is therefore no surprise that when Wizards of House Anima tried to materialize the most powerful energies of the Plane of Magic, the resulting beings looked like majestic eagles of pure mana.

Kaspar's Comment

“Arcane Eagles were originally meant to be a mere tool for ambitious Wizards, a display of their demiurgic ambitions and their ability to turn raw arcane energy into a living creature. Well, they certainly succeeded at that! Arcane Eagles started to reproduce somehow and wild specimens can now be encountered in the Spirit World. Life always finds a way...”

The Arcane Eagle is such a concentrated source of magic that anything close to it is saturated with magic, suffering from magical negative effects permanently.

Simurgh

Long believed to be a mere legend among the students of the arcane, the Simurgh was eventually discovered in the surreal landscape of the Plane of Magic. It took a long time (and many disastrous failures) before the Wizards were able to understand the nature of this powerful being and bend it to their wills.

Kaspar's Comment

“Legends are full of powerful birds: the Phoenix, the Rokh, the Huma... Like them, the Simurgh of the old myths was initially believed to be a unique being, the King of the Plane of Magic. We now know there are actually many Simurghs, as they are in fact the ultimate state of existence an Arcane Eagle can achieve.”

Simurghs are the ultimate magical tool for a Wizard, they serve as amplifier for their spells, making their master even more powerful spellcasters than they are by themselves.
