Pulsian Gold Chocobo

Standing in the sun and showing off its radiant, metallic feathers, this enormous chocobo is obviously proud, and for good reason. A symbol of both strength and rarity, it pays you little mind, but has an air about it that belies a tension as though it is ready to spring into action if you show any hostility. – Manly Man
