Pyravis are white-feathered birds with brightly coloured beaks, feet and eyes that greatly resembly sleekly round ravens. More intelligent than most birds, they travel in small groups -- rarely larger flocks -- and may infest buildings or dungeons looking for food or objects that attract their curiosity.

If feeling threatened or trying to attack a likely (and still-moving) meal, a pyravi will dive at it, suddenly sheathed in flickering multicoloured flames that cause 1-4 points of damage on contact. The pyravi will continue to attack so long as it is not in immediately obvious danger. In a larger flock, a pyravi's morale increases from 6 to 8.
