What Bird Is Taillow Based Off Of?
Taillow is based off of a small, migratory bird called the European swallow. This species of swallow is found throughout Europe, Africa, and parts of Asia. It has a distinctive forked tail and pointed wings, which are both features that can be seen in Taillow’s design. The European swallow also has a reputation for being able to fly long distances, which is likely why it was chosen as the basis for Taillow.
