Frightful Fridays! Mashup Marathon! Deagle

The deagle was inspired by the article that spawned the past three images, but I wanted something different image-wise. Unfortunately, I could not find a decent image that gave wings to the deagle, but this one captured the majestic feeling I was going for, so just imagine that the wings are underneath this creature's fur.

Stand by for a new monster coming your way in an hour!

This eagle-headed dog stares majestically before launching into flight.

Commissioned by rangers who wished to go into battle with a companion, but one that would not flee from creatures with the ability to generate fear, deagles turned out to be the best choice. They are loyal creatures, albeit ones with an independent streak, and their ability to shake off terror puts their masters to shame. Deagles have become popular with halfling and gnome cavaliers and paladins who ride the beasts into battle.
