Common to the Lakeland, the northern gorcrow (La. "pimeäsiivet") was a hardier and slightly larger version of the common gorcrow. They were similar in temperament to their southern brothers in that, while not exactly evil, they were indifferent to suffering of any kind. Also like their brothers, they were attracted to shiny objects, and might collect a large number of small trinkets or coins. They lived in large, communal nesting sites, which they defended in common from predators or treasure-seekers. The Lumimiehet regarded them as birds of ill-omen, and often plundered their nests for eggs and whatever other useful items they might find.
