Rukh's are one of Adijari's largest animals. They are giant eagles with claws that can wrap around elephants. The rukh's closest rival of the air is the mighty drake dragon, though unless it is a red drake, rukhs are far more formidable with their dense feathers that can withstand most enemy attacks. Rukhs live in mountainous regions. They are generally solitary animals that live apart even from each other. There are a few examples of them forming relationships with eagle-lahks, but these examples are rare. Because of the rukh's great power, many have died in the attempt of forcing a relationship with them.
