Draft

The Hakinu are a species of beastfolk that resemble humanoid birds of prey - hawks, eagles, falcons and owls.

Hawks, Eagles and Falcons

+2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, -2 Intelligence

Owls

+2 Wisdom, +2 Intelligence, -2 Charisma

All Egalit

Medium - While slightly taller and slimmer than average humans, they are still of medium size.

[1pt] Low-Light Vision - All egalit have can see twice as far as humans in dim light.

[1pt] Keen Senses - Egalit receive a +2 racial bonus on all Perception skill checks.

[1pt] Shinies - Due to their attraction to shiny objects, egalit receive a +2 racial bonus on Appraise skill checks for any object with metal or gems.

[1pt] Bestial Nature - Due to their animalistic connections to their past, Egalit can speak with natural birds of prey at will as a supernatural ability.

[3pts] Talons - While egalit have human-like hands, their fingers end in powerful talons that are useful for grasping and holding opponents. They receive a +2 racial bonus to CMB and CMD for grapples.  They also receive a +2 racial bonus to Climb checks.

[2pts] Sharp Eyes - All Egalit share incredible long-distance eyesight.  On a clear day, an Egalit can see detail over a mile away.  This does not mean that Egalit are better at sensing ambushes nearby; it only means that when an Egalit focuses on a distant object, she can see detail long before a Human could even see the object.

Because I can't sleep anyway, and I liked the name - a Polish spirit of the west wind, and a storm-themed Oracle.

Brittle bird bones

I think it would be interesting for Egalit to have lighter bones than average, and maybe to take extra damage from crushing attacks. It could be paired with an extra 5 move or something, representing their light weight and maneuverability...though this is not the kind of racial trait that other races have (the extra damage) in Pathfinder (maybe I'm thinking of 4e vulnerability).

What is the source of the race's name, Egalit?

The wings feat that they can

The wings feat that they can take might be too powerful so maybe adding some damage vulnerability would be good.

Egalit is just something I made up with eagle as a sort of root. It's very flexible if someone comes up with a better name.

Ornithes?

Since there are more types than just eagles, how about Ornithes? Maybe Ornithians? Singular Ornithus. Fits with my habit of using middle-order Latin names for the beastfolk races, and that's the subclass that encompasses all modern birds.

I get the impression that Jengar is probably an Egalit/Ornithus - is that true? Dude needs a write-up. I'm thinking a scholarly rogue, sort of like Indiana Jones...

The beastfolk names could

The beastfolk names could vary depending on where they were created, so we don't necessarily have to follow one pattern. I'm not opposed to the bird of prey having a latin name, but ornithian feels like a tough one to say for me. ;)

Maybe the brittleness could

Maybe the brittleness could be linked to the Avian Wings feat? Some Egalit are born built to fly, while the majority are a birdlike-but-terrestrial species...
