- The existence of the Vulcan bloodwing is never directly confirmed, but it is implied by the existence of the Rihannsu colony ship Bloodwing and the Romulan bloodwing, the latter of which would probably have been named for an animal with which the Rihannsu were familiar.
The Romulan bloodwing was a large, heavy carrion-eater known to require a long takeoff distance. Once in the air, however, it was majestic in flight. Khre'Riov Ael t'Rllaillieu's house used it as a "sigil-beast" (i.e. on their coat of arms). (TOS - Rihannsu novel: My Enemy, My Ally)
