The Great Bird (だいとり, Dai Tori?, lit. "Great Bird") is a form of transport that is used in Breath of Fire and Breath of Fire II. The ability to transform into the Great Bird is the Wing Clan's clan ability. Once a member of the Wing Clan reaches adulthood they gain the ability to fly by transforming into a giant bird.
Breath of FireEdit
In Breath of Fire all members of the Wing Clan have the ability to turn into Great Birds once they reach adulthood. When Ryu rescues Nina one of Winlan's soldiers transforms into a Great Bird to take Ryu to Karma. Other Great Birds can be seen fighting the Dark Dragon Clan. Later in the game, due to aging from the Time Key, Nina gets the ability to transform into a Great Bird. Nina's Great Bird form is used to enter Scande.
Breath of Fire IIEdit
By the time of Breath of Fire II the Wing Clan had lost the ability to turn into Great Birds. The reason for this loss is due to Nina marrying outside of the clan. It is still possible for a member of the Wing Clan to become a Great Bird. The only problem is once someone becomes a Great Bird they remain that way for the rest of their lives.
