The Razorbill is a huge-billed bird living in colonies in the coastal regions, especially the Lagoon of Tears. [1a]
They resemble a puffin and is normally a piscivore, but larger packs will also attack horse-size creatures and everyone too close to their nesting places, for example fishermen. As the name indicates, their bills are sharp enough to cause serious injuries, especially if there are twenty or more of them - attacks from lone Razorbills are not unknown, but rare. Their main diet is fish but they will readily eat carrion or anything they can catch.
The smell of a Razorbill colony is atrocious: A foul mix of rotten fish, sour blood, guano, and moulted feather rot, the stench of which carries for miles. [1a]
- The Lagoon of Tears: East of the Apuccini Mountains and Tilea, seperated from the Black Gulf by the Black Peninsula. [1a]
Razorbills are held such ill regard by Tileans that Merchant Prince houses actually declare ‘vendetta’ against enemies by splashing Razorbill blood, or even an entire carcass, on their doorstep. Various mercenary and criminal groups in that nation use it as a symbol. [1a]
