These black, dusty-feathered birds have grotesquely large talons and razor-sharp beaks.

Combat: Netherbirds attack with talons and beak. When attacking, they scream and hiss at their prey.

Netherbirds are Maneuverability Class D in the air.

Habitat/Society: Netherbirds may have come from Avernus originally, and now serve the power Bane. They are always found in flocks, and can be trained as message-carriers. They lair in desolate areas of crags and high, rolling moorland. Their eggs are black and leathery, and they hatch untended

Ecology: These birds eat all manner of flesh, living or dead, and usually stink of blood and decay.
