Amphipteres are demonic birds occasionally seen flying high in the sky over the Northlands during the Crystal War.

Fleet in flight but slow on foot, these creatures are now extinct. With valuable hides (which can be made into leather), claws and whiskers, those looking to make some quick gil hunted these monsters to extinction.

An amphiptere (also called Amphithere, Amphitere, or Phipthere) is a type of winged serpent found in European heraldry. Amphipteres generally were said to have greenish-yellow feathers, a serpentine body similar to a lindworm, bat-like green wings with feathered bone, and an arrow-tipped tail much like a wyvern's.
