They are so graceful and fluid in the air, often accompanied by dozens of tiny spren, flying around them in a swarm as if riding their wakes. The sailors call them "luckspren" - I doubt it is their true name.
They seek fish just below the waters surface, or crabs and rats on the docks, and aren't nearly as graceful when on land.
Skyeels are common near most coastal cities we pass. I had read of them often, and was excited to see them. Most are between 4 and 5 feet long, though I spotted one monster that must have been 1 feet from snout to tail.
