Eagle (Spirit of the Wild)
- This article is about the Spirit of the Wild. For the ambient creature, see Eagle. For the tamable pet bird, see Juvenile Eagle.
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 Dolyak and Wolverine—who stayed behind after Owl's demise and fought the Elder Dragon to give the norn the time to prepare for their exodus to the south. It is unknown what happened to Eagle, and the Spirit is not mentioned as often as other lost Spirits. Unlike other lost Spirits, Eagle did not get a dedicated shrine at Lost Spirits' Hallow in Hoelbrak.
No norn has been blessed to serve as havroun to Eagle in generations although it is unknown if this is because of Eagle's demise or because it is common for weaker Spirits, or those not close to the physical realm of Tyria, to be without a havroun.
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.
