The Birdman (Eptesicus avehomo) is the Awakened form of the common brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus). It resembles a large bat with a body up to 0.6 meters long and a wingspan of up to 2 meters. It has a pointed fox-like snout, and its coloration varies from dark brown to tawny red.

The Birdman feeds on fruit, and travels in flocks of up to 20 members. Birdmen are known to be curious, and they have been reported to use a sonic-based squeal attack on aggressors. They are also known to carry a malaria-like disease, and thus are considered a health hazard in most states.
