AKA: Lion bird, Cat Bird, Winged Cat, the White Hunter

The strix lion has the body and paws of a puma, and the wings and head of a strix.
It's the size of a puma, with over a 6 feet wingspan.
It's carnivore.
It's not as fast on ground as a puma, because its wings are bulky.
It can fly at a speed of 240'.
People risk their lives trying to acquire its striking white plumage to decorate hats and cloaks.

* They hatch from eggs

Rumors
* It's eggs have magical properties
* You can train a Strix Lion as a companion for combat or sport (hunting); a friend's friend knew of a man who did
