Eagle

Corrupted Eagle Spirit is one of the lesser Spirits of the Wild, and the natural embodiment of all eagles,[1] who stayed behind to fight the Elder Dragon Jormag during the norn exodus.

Biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

As the natural embodiment of all eagles,[1] Eagle was revered as one of the Spirits of the Wild among the norn. In the past, the norn considered Eagle as one of the great Spirits.[2]

Following the Elder Dragon Jormag's awakening in 1165 AE, the norn tried to defend their lands in the Far Shiverpeaks from its corruption and destruction, but they were no match for the Ice Dragon. Eagle was one of the Spirits of the Wild—alongside Ox and Wolverine—who stayed behind after Owl's apparent demise and fought the Elder Dragon to give the norn the time to prepare for their exodus to the south.[3] The norn did not know what had happened to Eagle since the exodus,[4] and the Spirit was not mentioned as often as the other Spirits. Unlike other Lost Spirits, Eagle did not get a dedicated shrine at Lost Spirits' Hallow in Hoelbrak.[5]

No norn had been blessed to serve as havroun to Eagle in generations although it was unknown if this was because of Eagle's demise or because it was common for weaker Spirits, or those not close to the physical realm of Tyria, to be without a havroun.[6]

The Icebrood Saga[edit]

During the Vigil's exploration of Bjora Marches in 1332 AE, several enhanced Sons of Svanir were discovered wielding what appeared to be Eagle's spiritual essence. Researcher Yarixx found a way to manipulate their spirit essence of Vigilance to turn them strong and weak against other minions of Jormag—Aberrant and Fallen—who had been infused with the essences of Valor and Resilience related to other lost Spirits of the Wild. Beyond the Sons of Svanir being infused with Eagle's essence and building many of their camps at Eagle's abandoned shrines, there was no other clue about the ultimate fate of Eagle.
