History

Rocs were coastal birds, who would only travel inland if they were being ridden by a Wing Rider.

Ate meat and would hunt on their own. Only required food once every seven days.

Rocs v War Shrikes

Rocs were the natural enemies of War Shrikes.

In battle the Rocs best chance was to gain height and distance. In a short race the War Shrikes had the advantage.1Morgawr – p 25
