Feasting on robots, machinery, and Ancient artifacts as well as flesh, the striking, 6' tall thanatiels are one of the most dreaded creatures of the technology-starved Mutant Future.  They usually roost in Ancient ruins, particularly abandoned skyscrapers and sports arenas.

Thantiels are nigh-invulnerable to physical harm, and possess "mono-molecular beaks" capable of slicing through the thickest materials.  The birds are drawn to concentrations of electronics (vehicles, equipment caches, etc.), and always consume metal and circuitry before focusing on live prey...unless, of course, said prey is wearing powered armor....

And woe be to any Android PCs caught in their sights!
