A Cockatiel is a brightly colored gregarious bird found in deserts and temperate grasslands. It has a distinct plumage made primarily of grays, with a yellow head and orange cheeks. It is a diurnal bird meaning it comes out mainly during the day. Beyond the obvious innate ability to fly, the Cockatiel is capable of swimming. Its young are called Cockatiel hatchlings and come one at a time. Since the Cockatiel is considered a vermin it is not butcherable by default. However it can be caged and made into a pet with a value of 30. When slain it leaves behind a small pile of remains.

Has two attack types, bite and scratch, with bite being the main attack and scratch being secondary. Both attacks are considered edged and it can latch onto its opponent with the bite attack.
