The R'Kaal are a sentient avian species from an unknown world. The average R'Kaal was a bird-like creature with a thin torso and delicate arms tipped with four-fingered, talon-like hands that apparently evolved over tens of thousands of years from wings. Due to the frail nature of their bodies, R'Kaal tend to shy away from conflict and confrontation, though they were known to defend themselves if necessary. Their necks in particular are most vulnerable, and are reflexively guarded during combat. They are however agile creatures, with a typically avian digitigrade stance and flay-toed feet useful for jumping.
