Willawaws are bloated, bioluminescent owls that thunderously rocket through the skies.  They Dive [p. 58 of the Mutant Future Core Rules] more often than not, and carry off quarry on To Hit rolls of 16+.

Willawaws are psychically attuned to all avians (normal, mutant, and humanoid) in their territory, and see and hear at will through the birds' senses.  And if a linked creature screeches a PCs name in an approximation of human speech, said PC is invariably the willawaw's next victim!  Legend says that anyone who observes a willawaw in flight also becomes a target.

Willawaws are hoarders, and stockpile artifacts, objets d'art, and junk.  Their cave-iaries are overstuffed with their prey's loot, and that acquired by their otusoid minions [see below].

Otusoids are stocky, flightless owl-men that unwaveringly procure fresh meat and treasure for their willawaw masters.  They are master hunters, trackers, and scavengers, and being immune to all fear-based effects and mutations, unrelentingly storm domiciles and strongholds in pursuit of their quarry.

Left to their own devices, otusoids are creepy, dead-eyed voyeurs that never, ever blink.
