A small, common bird in the towns and outposts of Bormar, some consider them pets, while others consider them annoying pests.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Malleemar is a bird of many colors, most commonly, however, seen with a gray plumage. the Malleemar possesses a small beak, perfect for cracking small nuts and seeds collected from the ground and fields surrounding settlements. given its small size, the Malleemar often finds nooks to nest in within the walls of old buildings in outposts.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

The Malleemar is a docile bird accustomed to living among the dwarven settlements. mostly active during the day, it may often be found around its nest or in fields surrounding the settlements, the bird subsists mostly on grains and small fruit. Malleemars often pair for life, nesting year after year in the same location, rearing their young for a month until they can fly.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Aside from the occasional fight with other Malleemars on nesting and feeding territories, the Malleemar remains passive. There are no recorded cases of a Malleemar harming dwarves, though the latter are often screeched at when getting too close to an active nest.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Aside from the occasional feather shed, there are no other known drops, beneficial or other from the Malleemar.

Ecology[edit | edit source]

Often believed to originate from the mar mountains' cliffs, the Malleemar often finds good nesting in watchtowers and old stone buildings. large flocks of Malleemar are considered pests by most farmers, as these birds are very fond of the grains they grow and are unaffected by common scarecrows.

Cultural Impact[edit | edit source]

As mentioned previously, the Malleemar is regarded as a pest in most settlements, especially by farmers. In settlements closer to Ereben, however, It is not uncommon to find dwarves who tend to these birds as semi-domesticated pets, considered to be a good omen and a blessing upon the home.
