AKA: Giant Raven
Great ravens are intelligent avians, kindred to great owls and great eagles. They are mischevious and willful, but they can become willing and able allies and mounts, to those with the patience to befriend them.
Great ravens, much like their smaller kin, go for the eyes. They are also quite agile and prefer to flee and mock rather than fight directly.
Great ravens serve as allies and mounts to many creatures -- they have none of the high moral standards of great owls and great eagles.
