In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, the blood hawk is a magical beast.

Ecology[]

Environment[]

Blood hawks dwell in forests, hills, mountains and plains.

Typical physical characteristics[]

Blood hawks closely resemble normal hawks, but stronger and more aggressive, and with a love for the taste of human flesh. All but the tip of their beak, and a small area around their eye, is orange and bare.

Alignment[]

Blood hawks are netural in alignment.

Society[]

Blood hawks are either solitary, or travel in murders of 3 to 12 individuals.

Creative origins[]

The blood hawk has appeared in several sourcebooks throughout editions of the game: 3E Fiend Folio, Tome of Horrors, 1E Fiend Folio, Monstrous Compendium Volume 2, Ultimate Monsters, and the Monstrous Manual. There have been a few differences between sourcebooks; in Tome of Horrors blood hawks are listed as aberrations and not magical beasts, while the 3E Fiend Folio lists them as size small and Ultimate Monsters lists them as tiny.
