This beautiful creature appears as an extremely large pheasant whose plumage can range from blue and green, to gold and green, to even pure white. The females of the species are much duller in color, often a lustrous brown, tan and gold with more colorful highlights. Brushing the ground behind the males are fantastic tails (trains) up to 3-6 feet in length, most with strange eye-like spots of scintillating blue, purples, oranges and blacks.

At the end of a small, sharp head is a curved beak. Its dark eyes are surrounded by white skin and sport elaborate lashes. From the top of its it head sprout a black crest.

Peacocks tend to flee creatures as large or larger than they, though small creatures they ward off with blows of their beaks and fluffing of their feathers.

Fanning (Ex): As a full round action a peafowl may spread their tail feathers to impressive heights, becoming much larger in appearance. While fanning, a peafowl is considered a Medium creature for the purpose of the Intimidation skill.
