Who you calling Chocobo Head...
Raptorans

Racial Traits
Average Height: 5' 9"-6' 5"
Average Weight: 130-170 lb.

Ability Scores: +2 Wisdom, +2 Strength or +2 Dexterity
Size: Medium
Speed: 6 squares
Vision: Low-Light

Languages: Common, Elven (Tuilvilanuue)
Skill Bonuses: +2 Athletics, +2 Perception
Glide: You may fall from any height and never take falling damage (and therefore always land on your feet), except if you fall while stunned or unconscious. If you willingly jump down from a height as part of a move action on your turn, you may shift 2 squares when you land, ignoring difficult terrain. You cannot use this ability if you are carrying more than a normal load.
Unerring Direction: Raptorans have an instinctive sense of which direction is north, even when they are underground or otherwise unable to see the sky or other visual cues. This ability only works on the Mortal World; it does not function on other Planes.
Wing-Aided Movement: When you make an Athletics check to jump, roll twice and use either result.
Wing Ligaments: If you fall while stunned, unconscious, or otherwise unable to use Glide (say because you were carrying a heavy load), you are treated as if you had a fly speed of 8 (unless obviously you already have a fly speed that’s better) for the purposes of landing safely. If you would still take damage, your wings unfurl as powerful ligaments in them stiffen, and you corkscrew into the ground and instead take 1d10 falling damage no matter the height.
Flight: You have the flight power.

Description
Raptorans are unique among the common races for their ability to fly. In ancient times, the raptorans made a pact with the primal spirits of air, gaining the ability to fly in exchange for pledging the finest warriors of their race to the service of the spirits in various battles. Although the spirits have not called upon the raptorans in living memory, the pact entered into by those distant ancestors continues to shape raptoran society.

Feathered wings are a raptoran's singular identifying feature. When fully outstretched, they span 10 to 12 feet. Raptorans tend to be thinner and slightly taller than humans, with most of their extra height in their legs; their arms are likewise somewhat longer.
