Although generally no taller than 3 feet, bronze birds are very heavy for their size - weighing about 65 pounds on average. Their name is derived from their flesh and plumage, which - against all natural logic - are armored with actual bronze.

Besides the bronze armor, bronze birds are famous for their ability to "shoot" their sharp, metallic feathers at enemies. Many an adventurer has been killed by this iconic attack; one should never underestimate its lethality.

No-one is certain of the origin of these extremely dangerous beasts or whether they are naturally occurring or magical constructs of some kind; no eggs or young bronze birds have ever been spotted before. Inexplicably, they are capable of flying like a regular bird, despite their flesh and plumage being entirely armored with bronze. Their ability to fly and to "shoot" sharp feathers at enemies suggests a magical or supernatural origin, but no definitive answer has ever been found.

Although dissective analysis revealed that they are flesh and bone underneath, suggesting that these are real living creatures, even the bones appeared to be coated in bronze, lending the bronze birds natural hard armor which renders them bullet-resistant to a certain degree.

The best course of action against bronze birds is to flee; however, if you are well-equipped and prepared to fight them, it is advisable to use firearms and armor-piercing ammunition, so that they can be quickly neutralized before they have a chance to fire their deadly feather blades at you.
