The diatryma was a large, flightless bird native to the Underdark.[1]


The gigantic bird was about 8 ft (2.4 m)[2] - 12 ft tall.(3.7 m)[3] Its short wings rendered it flightless.[3] It had a thick neck and a deadly powerful hooked beak.[2]


The drow used their hugely plumed feathers for decoration.[1] The mercenary, Jarlaxle, sported one of these on his wide brimmed hat, as ornamental and as a functional magical item.[4] By blowing into the feather, Jarlaxle was able to summon a diatryma bird.[5]
