Sharp Awlids were birds native to the Northern Mountains. They were diurnal cousins of Awlises, but were different in that they had brighter plumage with vibrant blues and yellows and possessed a more flamboyant song delivered in a higher tonal range that was sweet to the ear. Able to fly at incredible altitudes, their talons and feathers would often be tipped with frost when they dove back to the ground.

Sharp Awlids would shed and regrow their beaks as they matured, with their new bills having a sharp edge and a fresh golden sheen. Treasure hunters from the Vapra Clan would bring discarded beaks back from the mountains believing they had struck gold, only to be disappointed when they showed them to local merchants.[1]
