Garuda, the most recurring Avian

Avian (霊鳥, Reichō, lit. "Spiritual Bird") is a race of demons of the Birds species in the Shin Megami Tensei series. It is the bird's version of Holy Beast and Godly Beast races. They are usually the god in bird's form or the sacred bird which brings good fortune. Garuda, the king of birds, is usually the top ranked Avian. The only exceptions are both installments of Devil Survivor which include this race with demons from the previously Flight (neutral) and Raptor (dark) races. They are Light-Law.
