Overview

The emu is the second tallest bird in the Mazes, second only to the elephant bird. Fully grown emus can reach heights of up to 6 feet 3 inches, and weigh between 45 and 140 pounds.

Very agile on their two legs, emus are capable of surprising feats of speed, observed running at up to 45 ft/s (30 mph). These two legs also let the emu perform kicks and strikes and are tipped with sharp talons, with which they can also attack when they are not simply using their long and pointy beaks to peck at opponents.

Emus have been variously described as vicious, violent, and even evil, as it will provoke just about any creature to try and peck them. Females are known for being the most aggressive, as they will consider any creature that isn't part of her flock to be a threat for her eggs - up to and including other emus. If turkeys were known for picking fights and chasing people out, emus are known for causing mortal wounds and killing any creature that underestimates them.

This deadly reputation has also fed into legends surrounding these animals, which some say have waged wars with humans in other realms, supposedly showing resistance to even fully-automatic gunfire of a human army. Although such tales remain mere legends, many adventurers take them to heart and over-prepare for the "emu threat", up to and including machine guns and grenades in the name of "not taking chances".

For other, more discerning adventurers, the emu remains a popular target for hunting. Emu meat is said to have a taste similar to that of turkey, but with a tougher, more raw texture. Their eggs, known for their peculiar teal color, are sometimes kept as trophies.
