Horus is the loyal confidant and right-hand bird of prefect Vultaire, the overseer and ruler of the Birds' capital Avista.
He is a short and stout pigeon Birdman wearing refined green robes. He does not normally speak and is mostly heard making "coo" sounds like a regular pigeon. When Avista was attacked by Mumm-Ra's forces, Horus helped to defend Avista.
In Egyptian mythology, Horus is one of the oldest and most significant of the deities. He was most often depicted as a falcon or a man with a falcon's head.
