These were birds that had a fire-colour plumage and razor sharp wings. It is said that only two live at a times and that they each live for sixty years. After hatching the adult parents drop into the sea while other birds come to the nest to raise their young. The Yllerions are similar to the Phoenix. These creatures made only one singular appearance in a letter by Prester John to European princes in the 13th century.
