Playing a Monkeybird[edit]

Their personalities are as varied as humans, but most have been treated badly by non-winged creatures and their knack for stealing food has often gotten them in trouble. They can be proud, vain, clever, curious, and also friendly, loyal, and trustworthy, except where food is concerned.
