13th Age: Impundulu

The Impundulu or Lightning Bird is no ordinary bird. Stories of this monster, which grows to the size of a human, can be found in Pondo, Zulu, and Xhosa folklore. It can apparently summon lightning and storms, hence the name. The bird is allegedly a shape shifter as well, that can appear as a human, and is sometimes a supernatural familiar that guards a witch or witch doctor. Due to its size and nature, it will attack people and drink their blood.
