Jaggia are female members of the Jaggi family, a Raptorial Bird Wyvern species, and something of a parallel to the "Prey" species of other regions. Jaggia are noticeably larger and bulkier than the immature males of the species, Jaggi, and are mostly blue-ish purple in hue, the exceptions being orange areas along their limbs and the sides of their necks and cream-colored underbellies. Their tails, unlike males of the species, have no barbs, and instead have a soft feather-like hanging accent near their ends. Their frills, located behind their jaws, are also more subdued than in other Jaggi variations, and hang limply.
Jaggia and their kin display a higher functioning level of cooperation than other small Bird Wyverns, and are more of a challenge than the smaller Jaggi due to their greater resilience and larger area of attack. They do, however, still spend a nominal amount of time "barking" at threats, and still rarely prove much of a challenge lest a hunter find themselves surrounded. It is also notable that, unlike most other minions, Jaggia are sometimes found sleeping.
- Jaggia, like other members the Jaggi family, are naturally afraid of fire and will often not attack a hunter holding a torch, but will sometimes if the hunter has his/her back turned. This can be used to make gathering when surrounded simpler and easier. If struck twice by torch-attacks, Jaggia will usually flee, leaving the area temporarily. This can sometimes prove a quicker way of evacuating a group of Jaggia than actually slaying them. Jaggi respond identically to torches. (Note that in the Level 2 Urgent Village Quest, Jaggi and Jaggia encountered must be slain! Scaring them away will only prolong the quest).
- Jaggia can and will be summoned by Great Jaggi. Jaggia will only be summoned in areas in which they can normally appear. Otherwise, only Jaggi will be summoned.
- Jaggia will attack a Rathian if they are in the same area.
