The Thunderbirds are the great manitou guardians of the sky over Lake Superior, sometimes seen flying high amid the tops of storm clouds. They rarely interfere in the affairs of men and monsters, but when they do it is invariably on the side of good. They are similar to dragons in size and ferocity, and command lightning and thunder as their weapons of choice. They are most frequently spotted in the northwest corner of the lake, but they range freely. They are the sworn enemies of the Meshupeshu.
