Unlike his very many sisters, Gold Eagle wasn't very good with people. He was better with the very many pets they had at home and he was quite alright with that. People just tended to be too loud and too noisy and very much of the time they asked him questions he didn't know the answers to. Eagle knew his sisters were the exception to the rule-- always-- he might be somewhat awkward around them but he'd always make time for them.
It was much more difficult to make time for others. Or, to be more precise, he was quite certain that he was boring compared to the adventurous and rambunctious spirits his sisters had. Even little Lark seemed to be far more outgoing and mischievous then he and, growing up, they'd practically been paired off in all family events. Eagle found he often wondered if he missed that gene in his family, but to anyone who knew him it came out in much different ways.
Such as right now as he stood at the top of one of the pointed rocks that cast over the lake. Eagle had come out here for an enjoyed past time-- Feeding the giant squid in the lake. He was still trying to figure out what it liked best and was disappointed to find that today it seemed highly uninterested in the bits of sardine that he managed to throw in. "Must prefer fresh fish," he muttered to himself, moving to plop down on the walk. His fingers fiddled with the wrappings of a chocolate bar and he paused minutely with an idea.
"...Worth a shot," he continued in the same quiet way, biting off a piece of chocolate before flinging it into the lake as well. Eagle might have been well aware that squids were carnivores but, well, this was a giant squid. At a magic school. It was highly likely magic. Maybe it could eat whatever it wanted-- Like peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches.
In spite of the cold he waited to see if the squid would show up or not, ignoring the shivering of his body that already seemed to persist.
