From The Wandering Inn Wiki

Harpies are one of the Races that used to inhabit Izril. Unlike the usual Earth depiction of them in fantasy books, they are cultural, intelligent people and not monsters.[1]

Physiology[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

They looked like Bagrhavens, but are smaller and less foul then them.[2] They have a humanoid torso, a bird’s massive wings for arms, and talons for legs.[3] Unlike Garuda, their winged arms don’t have talon hands,[2] but they are flexible.[4]

Their body size grows as they age, from the young ones being half the size of the average Human when crouched, while the older ones being larger as they grew,[4] like twice a person size.[3] An ancient Harpy can grow to be as large as a house.[4]

Like Minotaurs, who may have five-toed feet or hooves,[5] some Harpies may have Human features entirely while others took more to their bird side.[6]

Physical Qualities[edit | edit source]

Diet[edit | edit source]

Harpies could/would eat seeds,[7] meaning they weren't (entirely) carnivores.

Magical Qualities[edit | edit source]

Special Abilities[edit | edit source]

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

They are mostly only good in the air.[2]

Behavior and Culture[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

The Harpy-ruled Empire of Iltanus once controlled much of Izril as well as Terandria; but was eventually gone from the face of the world like most other Empires.[7]

They were thought to be "probably extinct", but there were hints that some might still be around.[8] This would later proved to be true, as it would be revealed that the remaining Harpies moved to Rhir, and joined the Demons for an unknown reason.[2] Currently they are suffering the most from Rhir corruption, as they have to fly through miasma clouds, far above the stationary cleansing zones.

While it is not yet confirmed, it is believed that one of the Deathless, specifically the Death of Wings, is actually a Harpy.[3]

  • Until Volume 7 the Harpies were considered an extincted race like the Jinn[9] and the Elves, as well as probably the Gnomes and the Halflings.
