Last Exile

Racing birds at Casino Royale

Racing birds are large flightless birds found on the world of Prester.

Racing birds live the desertous regions of Anatoray. Their feathers can take on a number of colors: white, black, gold, and grey individuals can be seen. The birds appear to have teeth in their beaks, a trait no real-life birds possess.

Domesticated racing birds also appear in the series. Walker Palace maintains a stable of the birds, and hold regular races which customers are allowed to place bets on. These birds wear stylized blinders.

In the final episode, Claus Valca and Lavie Head appear to have purchased the white racing bird Lavie dubbed "Sleepyhead" and are raising it on their farm.


The racing birds are similar in appearance to Chocobos from the Final Fantasy series except for size.
