The reptilian answer to the tiger, raptors are agile, fast, and vicious hunters in their own right. Although they are found in several areas such as caves, open wastelands, rugged mountainous terrain, and dense brush, the majority of raptors share the same pale white skin and blue stripes. The species that reside in the woodlands are green to match their surroundings. Their strong hind legs propel them at speeds that make it difficult for prey to escape, but their vestigial wings are too small to provide flight. Whether it be by claw, jaw, tail, or breath attacks, raptors can hold their own if threatened. It is interesting to note that where there are raptors, there are usually cockatrice around, which would lead to the speculation that raptors feed on these slower moving creatures.

As for value, the skin of the raptor is a valuable material to leathercrafters who can synth it into an armor set, as well as a mantle and weapon strap. The skin is also used to make the hilt of several bladed weapons and lining for armor due to its soft, supple texture.
