Castle Rooks, sometimes King's Rooks or Gan's Blackbirds but never "Royal Rooks", are a species of raven that is larger than normal. They feed on the bodies of the dead and thus are often found at execution sites. A large group of them live on the edge of the Badlands and on into Castle Town and Le Casse Roi Russe.

Roland and Susannah knew they were approaching the end of the Badlands when they started seeing the rooks as well as the devil grass.

After Rando Thoughtful was killed by Mordred, the rooks came to eat what was left of his body.
