Vrail are communal raptors, and a serious threat in many alpine wilderness areas. Vrail make their rookeries in high, rocky cliff faces, which are typically quite inaccessible.

Combat
Vrail hunt in groups. When a vrail flock attacks, they attack as a group and then circle to survey the results. Vrail typically do not attack groups of more than three individuals, but circle, waiting for one target to stray too far from the group.

Diving Attack (Ex): When making a charge attack while flying, a vrail's talons inflict an extra 1d6 points of damage.

Vrail as Familiars
Vrail can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. Arcane casters with vrail familiars gain a +2 bonus to Fortitude saving throws.
