Lahevit takes the form of a bipedal bird with a tawny-brown underside and faded-red backside, along with a red head and chestpiece. Lahevit has two average-length feet that lead to two three-clawed feet. Lahevit also posseses two large red wings, with golden highlights running along the border feathers.
Along with the wings, Lahevit's beak, eyes and feet are also coloured a shining gold, which pops out in contrast to the unsaturated, dark colours that accompany them.
Lahevits act almost exactly like normal birds like it, chowing down on fish (and presumably other fish-like Compliens), mating, protecting their young and going about the daily grind of an ordinary bird.
What sets them apart from normal birds, however, is the fact that they are a species of Compliens, and they are extremely territorial, constantly engaging in fights with various creatures, especially other Lahevits whose territories accidentally overlap. Because they get into squabbles very frequently, their body and feathers are very durable, but still light enough to allow flight. They never migrate as Lahevits can also be stubborn, not liking to move to a new space.
Make sure to not get too close to a Lahevit or enter it's territory, because they do not tire easily at most likely will stop at nothing to try and hurt you to teach you a lesson. If a Lahevit deems you not as a threat, they will lay off you, but will still keep a close eye. If you steal one of it's eggs, it's an automatic death sentence from a Lahevit.
They also have a special relationship with their burgeon, Phevetalit. Only in rare circumstances do Lahevits ever burgeon, which is especially surprising because Lahevits condemn change, but whenever a Lahevit burgeons, they automatically are loyal to the Phevetalit, not out of fear of their power, but from respect. While not entirely subservient to Phevetalits, they are fond of having one of them around, because their aura has a calming effect, forbidding them from entering fights that often and generating a rather nice atmosphere.

Some insights on Lahevit's origins.
Lahevit is a combination of the words, Lariat, Heave, Heron, Vital and Hit.
While Lahevit was inspired by birds that are known to fight, the design resembles one of the depictions of a phoenix, foreshadowing its burgeon.
