Great Auk is a type of Friend.

Appearance

The Friend has long black hair with wing tufts on the sides of her hair and two white spots on the front fringe. White ribbons tie her hair together into a pony tail that's greyer at the ends compared to the rest of the hair. She wears a turtle neck that's black on the sides, including the arms, with white on the front of the collar and shirt. She has a black tail, a white tutu, with leggings and strapped shoes in a very dark shade of brown.

In Real Life

The Great Auk is an extinct species of bird. Despite its resemblance to a penguin, Great Auks have their own genus Pinguinus. Penguins were given their name due to their resemblance to Great Auks. The great auk used to inhabit North Atlantic coastal waters, as well as the coasts of Southern France, Italy and others among the Mediterranean Basin. The great auk was a particularly important as both a food source and cultural icon for the Native Americans. Both Native Americans and sailors hunted the great auk for its meat, eggs, and down feathers. Unfortunately, exploitative hunting practices lead to the species' overall extinction.
