Ruled by a tribal elder high up on Dragoon Roost Island dwell the Rito, a human-like bird race. Adept-fliers that are capable of great speeds, they prove rather efficient as mail carriers for Hyrule (as they are the only ones who can pass over the seas without using a Cumbersome ship), and as short-distance transportation for Humans (once fully grown).
Ritos are not born with wings, but rather received them as a coming-of-age ceramony. Young Rito have to venture forth to the great dragon Valoo and attain a scale. With this scale, it enables Rito to grow their wigs, as well as allowing them to be accepted among their tribe as an adult. Their wings appear as long, flowing sleeves, allowing the Rito usage of their hands while their wings are not being used. They are rumoured to be distant-relatives of the Zola/Zora Race.Racial Abilities:Flight
