The first phase of the battle has the Sparna with its wings outstretched, but after losing a significant amount of health, it will shield itself with them.
The English name is a mistranslation of Suparna. Suparna is one of many names attributed to Garuda. Garuda is a large, birdlike creature that appears in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It serves as Lord Vishnu's mount and is the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila. Contemporary representations of Garuda are the brahminy kite and phoenix.
