For the love of all that is good and lawful... Take the stupidest traits from all of the world's silliest birds, and you get the Achaierai. Stumpy, flightless wings; garish clown plumage; a goofy parrot head; and not two, but four lanky chicken legs. The best part? This creature is lawful evil and loves to torture its victims. I can't imagine a worse nightmare.

How to use it: All you really need to do to use this creature in an adventure without your players bursting into laughter is change its appearance. Make it look menacing: black plumage, vulture or hawk-like features, eyes that burn with malevolence... A simple paint job transforms the Achaierai from clown to killer.
