Its name in Basic was derived from the raptor's rather disturbing shrieking noise. The Mandalorian award of Jaig eyes was named for the jai'galaar, and CT-55/11-9009 took the creature's name as his own. Members of Clan Vizsla and the Death Watch also wore a stylized symbol modeled after a shriek-hawk in mid-dive.
