His role was to bestow good fortune but also to bring omens of impending catastrophes. The spirit appeared as a giant black eagle, and sometimes as a giant warrior visible in the clouds. His gaze could be lightning and his voice thunder.
Eagle's priests worked for the common good and tried to achieve good fortune for their community.
Next to the green elves of Toril, this powerful spirit was also worshiped under the name of Thunder by the American Indian peoples of Earth. Some of the djinn of Zakhara also payed homage to him, and he had a mosque at their Citadel of Ice and Steel.
