  • Despite being Bird Wyverns Gargwa are quite cowardly and timid compared to other Bird Wyverns.

This speed can also be dangerous due to them being known to knock people off carts if encountered with danger.

  • When alone, Jaggi will just feed on small fish and other small prey. In a pack, they will hunt down Aptonoth by using various hunting strategies. They will run around prey to confuse it and use their speed to their advantage. While surrounding the prey, they attack the prey from its blind spots, making the prey bleed.
  • Each member in the Jaggi pack play some specific role in the pack. The role of the Jaggi is to patrol the distant outskirts of the territory and to hunt down prey for the rest of the pack while away from the main territory.
