The fierce beauty and nobility of the leonopteryx give it a central place in Na'vi lore and culture. It is celebrated in dance, song, and with elaborate totems that symbolize both the fear and respect accorded to the creature. Indeed, the leonopteryx is crucial to the Na'vi's sense of destiny and interconnectedness. The Na'vi name, Turok, derives from the belief that if the leonopteryx casts its shadow, it will be the last shadow you will ever see.
This illustration by artist Steven Messing shows Jake atop the leonopteryx leading the other Na'vi into battle.
