Talon is an aarakocra with eagle-like features. He is a descendant of the Ackairon people of the Moredhel valley. Like most ackairon that become part of Ba'lith's military, his early life began in a military crèche.
With the features of an eagle, Talon closes on the Pillar. He flaps his brown wings twice, then coasts. He sees the Pillar of Horns as a ponderous thing, no sense of aerodynamics, something that shouldn't even be in the air. At first, he hated the idea of being aboard something that flies by magic. It seemed so unnatural, living in a honeycombed pillar of rock that floated across the skies in defiance of gravity. He remembers the captain telling him, "Think of it as a floating nest; we go where the game is." His words have proven true. My belly has never been fuller, Talon muses.
