Aviar are a class of bird on First of the Sun native to the Pantheon archipelago. Aviar is a term the Eelakin use for any bird that has magical powers and is capable of sharing those powers with humans.
Source of Powers
These birds have gained magical powers on account of consuming worms native to the islands while very young. The power obtained is different for each species of bird. Kokerlii has the ability to conceal his mind and those of others around him from beasts that hunt by seeking out minds. Sixth of the Dusk raised a non-native bird on the isles, Sak, and found that she also developed powers. There are also types of Aviar that have powers related to the Physical Realm. Aviars are able to share these powers with humans through a spiritual Connection similar to the Nahel bond. Their bond is not as powerful as the Nahel bond, but because of that it is easier to shift between people.
Aviar and power
- Sixth of the Dusk's cognitive disguise Aviar. He has the ability to conceal his mind and those of others around him from beasts that hunt by seeking out minds, which is similar to Allomantic copper.
- Vathi's cognitive disguise Aviar. He has the ability to conceal his mind and those of others around him from beasts that hunt by seeking out minds.
- One of the Aviar Dusk is raising.
- A non-native bird raised on the isles. She is able to show people places they might die. These warnings manifest as illusions of their dead bodies. This is similar to Allomantic electrum.
It has been hinted at that there are many other magical properties that were not mentioned. The magical abilities/species of birds has been well documented by the Mainlanders and there has not been a new type of Aviar discovered for over 100 years.
