The dictionary definition of a familiar is "a demon supposedly attending and obeying a witch, often said to assume the form of an animal." Of course, as witchcraft has become more popular in media and its definition has grown and expanded, and so has our idea of familiars. These days, familiars can be anything from a pet, such as a cat, to a being bestowed upon the faithful by a deity. Utilizing a spirit companion as your familiar is a way to stay true to the more traditional form of the word, while still allowing yourself to branch out in variety.
Our conjurer Ember defines a familiar as astral beings such as fairies or unique creatures that call the astral home, born from its energy, or long deceased animal spirits who can be summoned to offer their aid. While each species of familiar will have their own unique skills and range in its intelligence and ability to communicate with words, one thing they all share in common is their desire to assist witches along their path.
While their name may seem redundant, there is a special reason why these avians are referred to as 'sky' birds. These lovely creatures have natural camouflage that allows them to blend into the sky around them during flight. This makes them especially good at scoping out new territories, capable of going incognito and remaining undetected. Depending on your personal needs, this means that a Sky Bird familiar can be used either as sentries, keeping an eye over one's property or person from up above, as scouts during astral trips, or spies. They would be an excellent familiar to have for conjurers new or experienced, spirit workers who want an extra layer of protection, or anyone who takes frequent astral trips.
Roughly the size of an adult pitbull and a wingspan of over 8ft, these birds are ferocious and strong with razor sharp talons and beaks. When they are resting or off duty, they are a bit aloof, but not opposed to occasional head pats. Their bodies will reflect the skies that suit their moods, so you can always tell if your Sky Bird needs some time alone or is feeling particularly grumpy. They're not big on being treated like pets, and prefer to observe from above, doing best when given tasks to follow.
While these birds are primarily air aligned beings, they can assist with solar, lunar, and storm based magics if their witch focuses their magic in these areas.
