Phantoms are flying ambush predators that inhabit Shear.
Phantoms are large, nearly man-sized, flying mammalian scavengers. Highly social, they patrol in packs known as blights, using advanced chirps as signals to coordinate their hunting and alert each other to threats. Although Phantoms are placental mammals that give live birth and are covered with fine hairs, they also sport hard, bird-like beaks composed entirely of keratin. They use these beaks to rip and tear at the flesh of their prey. The beak’s smooth, hairless texture prevents the bacteria on the Carrion they eat from growing on or near their mouths.
