The crayghe is also known as the "elven hawk." It is a specific breed of hawk bred by the elves for intelligence and loyalty, as it bonds with humanoids surprisingly tightly, and can be well trained by them. It especially bonds well with elves, but it may bond with any humanoid.
Crayghes are claustrophobic and can be quite tempermental, escaping into the wilds if ill-treated. They favor urban areas, however, and can get along quite well there. Given their rarity and market price, however, true feral crayghes are uncommon.
Crayghes fight like other hawks, with deep raking dives, but they tend to aim for the eyes and the face much like a raven.
