Great Eagles were as intelligent as any of the Free Peoples but were not numbered among them, presumably because they lacked the power to build things and fashion crafts. These huge birds were not to be trifled with, though: they were fierce foes when aroused to anger and had little patience with faint-heartedness in the face of danger. They were stalwart foes of Evil and especially hated any other creature of the air who had allied with the Valar's enemies.They spoke a language of their own: Eryr-aryth.
