The Kennedir are a group of similar predatory species that look very much like four footed eagles. They are almost all extremely fleet footed and some are pack hunters. They have long thin feathered tails that they can hold high in the air for communication in tall grass. Many species have a large dewclaw on the forelegs. They are roughly the ronan equivalent of wolves and other wild dogs.
