NAME ORIGIN
    A Cockatrice Claw is a talon of the fabled cockatrice. A cockatrice is a legendary monster that was said to have been hatched by a serpent from the egg of a rooster. It was said to reside in Egypt and was commonly represented with the head, legs, and wings of a rooster and the body and tail of a serpent. It was also said that it could kill or turn its victims to stone with a single glance. The word itself comes from the Late Latin word calcatrix, a translation of the Greek word ikhneumon meaning "tracker".
