Summoned Creature: VultureA large grey bird with claws and a beak of sickly purple. It is reviled for its habit of feasting on the dead, and the sight of it flying over head, its tail whipping behind it, is considered a bad omen. It has a shrill, piercing cry and excellent vision, which it uses when it wheels and darts about in agile flight, quickly spinning into deadly dives. It also has the unpleasant habit of carrying prey high into the sky then dropping it so that, upon hitting the ground, it will be left in convenient bite-sized pieces. It seems no wonder at all that it gets so little love from humans.

As a summoned, template, creature, this creature has several changes. Anything noted with [] is what it gains from the template associated with the summoners’ alignment. Divine is always listed first, and Unholy afterwards.
