"The men and women of the nomadic Kirooki tribe shadow the migration of the Great Plains buffalo and worship the same gods found in the Glorious Soaring temples to the mountainous east.Amongst these resilient nomads is one of the more interesting denizens of the northern Great Plains, a rare artisan amongst falconers, the Eagle Hunter. These hunters, when paired with the great Golden Eagles of the north are a proud sight to behold. Who knew anyone would have the deft or skill to tame such a majestic creature? In their natural habitat the Golden Eagle feeds on birds, owls and vermin but when paired with the right hunter they can be trained to take down fox, wolf and even bear! The training of these birds is as much an art as it is a skill. Caught when young, the eagles are hand fed, massaged, groomed, bonded, taught to hunt, and after 6 seasons released back to the wild. Releasing the Golden Eagle back to the heavens is done with honor and reverence and as such, closes an important chapter in the life of a Kirooki Eagle Hunter." - Chapters of the North, Volume IV - Mahotsukai Hoohige
