The Steam-Powered City
When conducting any sort of business in Athijan, make sure to constantly watch the skies for these winged monstrosities, who are known to quickly dive down onto unsuspecting victims with their sharp beaks aimed at their heads. Instead of sporting feathers, dune racers are just covered in a thin, light tan skin, allowing for hiding on the ground if necessary, which makes them even more threatening. They have long necks for spying on prey, claws at the end of each fleshy wing, and two bony, clawed legs which are used to sprint across the desert surface at the speed of the average horse. As such, the dune racer is a classic example of the deadliness of the isolated nation.
