Aruvis: The Aruvi are very resemblant of dragons in body shape and appearance, however, do not have a 'breath weapon' not armored scales, not to be under-estimated regardless. They are highly intelligent Feathered beasts, capable of remaining in flight for days on end when needed, bearing incredible stamina and physical strength comprable to a dragon, along with razor sharp talons, on both their paws and wings, as well as blade like protrusions amongst the featered tuft on the end of their tails. Their mouth's are more beak-like than a dragon, with the jaw strength crush steel as though it were paper. The most simplistic method of identifying the different betwen Aruvi and Dragons from a great distance is that the Aruvi's Sillouhette appeared to have 3 parellel tails due to the gigantic string feathers that grow from beneath both wings. It's quite a status symbol to wear Aruvi Feathers, the larger the feather the greater the achievment, but is only possible for those who have 'earned' it, as when forcibly ripped out, the feathers shrivel and turn to dust, and can only be 'preserved' when willingly shed by the Aruvi.
It's a very confusing occurance when one Dies, as the internal factors of the body seem to vanish as if they were always made of air, and the Feathers form into a strange Grave Marker like Fashion. Those who attempt to 'grave rob' Aruvi feathers are unlikely to survive, as for some strange reason, forcibly ripping the feather from the grave, rather than turning it to dust, causes it to burst into a caustic acid, as though it punishes the travesty of defiling it's host's grave.
The Greatest power of the Aruvi however, is their ability to use Wind magic to great degree, though no other form of magic obviously, and can often be miscontrued as a 'breath weapon' when they regurgitate whirl-winds at threats, occaisonally making people theorize that they may be 'Wind Incarnate'.
They are actually responsible for the appearance of 'Wind stones', Enchanted chunks of stone that float as though gravity never existed in the first place, and are easily shapeable into unique types of equipment [such as a piece of clothing that renders the user 'lighter' than they normally would be] or beautiful statues that float weightlessly where they are placed. The method of their creation is unknown, but it is theorized that they Aruvi are responsible for Arianus' floating island being capable of 'floating'. [and will remain solely a 'theory' and not truth unless the GM decides to use that himself XD]
They are also the only one's capable of easily retrieving certain strange plant types that grow in mid-air and react to the approach of artificial vessels by floating away on wind disturbance created by their momentum, making trade with them the only replenishable source of these plants for use by alchemists and the like.
