Dromornis are gigantic birds that are used as pack animals by travelling merchants and farmers. They are surprisingly clever, which to the dismay of many farmers, makes them hard to ride. Instead they are put to use as beasts of burden or for labour.
Dromornis are 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall and weight up to 650 kilograms (1400 Pounds). They have a long neck and stub-like wings, rendering it flightless. Its legs hold a powerful kick, but cant run particularly fast. The bird's beak is large and immensely powerful, but they use it to shear through sturdy plant stalks.
Dromornis males are more robust and heavier, though not necessarily taller, than females.
