The Mystaran Magpie is a notorious thief, as the birds are attracted to shiny things. The common Magpie measures 14 to 18 inches long from beak to tail. And, its body and tail are often black (with blue, green and lavender highlights). In every case, the Magpie's shoulders and belly are white.

Skills: The Mystaran Magpie has a +5 racial bonus to Pick Pockets.
