Before Combat Like standard owlbears, sleeyk owlbears are fierce and territorial. However, they are generally controlled by handlers and in such situations may be led into combat purposefully by their riders. If no rider is present, a sleeyk owlbear reverts to its natural, untrained behavior.
During Combat They tend to attack without provocation, slaughtering any living creatures that cross their paths.
Morale Sleeyk owlbears that are ridden are generally kept under control and are subject to their riders’ commands. In normal circumstances, however, a sleeyk owlbear fights to the death.

Magically bred for speed and agility at the expense of strength, a sleeyk owlbear looks thinner and ganglier than a typical owlbear, though still muscular.
