PostSubject: Fowl Harpies   Mon Feb 16, 2009 1:40 pm

This idea came out of NOWHERE.One day, I was doodling in class, and for some reason, drew a half chicken/half human creature.The inspiration hit me like a metal nuke to a giant magnet:Why not make a chicken harpy?
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Name:Fowl Harpy
Height:Regular(50 ft.) and roosters(80 ft.)chicks(10 ft.)
Wingspan:Regular(30 ft.) and rooster(40 ft.)
Diet: Omnivorous, though mostly meat.
Colors:(Body) Brown, red, black, white, tan, green, and yellow.(Hair)Almost always red.

Description: Fowl Harpies are what you would expect them to be:half-chicken creatures. It's been known that adventurers have always thought of the species as dumb, and that they do not realise how smart they really are.

The most noticable trait is their red hair, which is shaped like a spikey crest on top, and hair on the side of the crest falls down to the shoulders, making them look even more like their fully-avian counterparts.A rooster's crest hair is much taller then the regular crest.A Fowl Harpy has very small and weak wings, but they aren't useless.They can be used to glide short distances, which is especially helpful in chasing running prey or escaping danger.Their legs are orange and agile, allowing them to run with ease, and pull off some fancy kicks if needed.Their clawed feet are well suited for the job, and can slice through unprotected flesh with ease.One strange ability of the Fowl Harpy is a sickness it can pass on if it is eaten.While the Harpy may not be saved, the sickness can cause serious illness or even death in some creatures that eat it.As such, they're left alone by other creatures.Chicks, however, do not have the sickness yet, and are vunerable to predators.

The species live in large groups, lead by a few "rooster" leaders. Roosters can be either male or female, though female is mostly chosen.New roosters are chosen via combat against each other, and all battles usually end up bloody, with the winner becoming a rooster.Adult Fowl Harpies tend to have very serious personalities, while chicks have a very curious personality. Like other harpies, they use fowl language as their main tongue, though its not uncommon to see a conversation involving no foul words or threats.Chicks are protected by all the members of the group, and they will fiercely guard them from dangerous threats.Their preferred homes are in grassy or forested areas, though deserts will do fine. They prefer humans and nekos as prey, and will chase them for hours just to get a small snack.They'll also eat fairies, if they can catch them.As mentioned, they are smart creatures, being able to make complex plans to use in hunting.It seems that no adventurer has escaped their stomachs yet.

Seems like it...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm open for critique and additions.Very Happy

Hmm... Given their smart nature, which people seem to think is dumb, why not base them off of the gloutex:

Glouteux

Size: 30 feet
Threat: Moderate

A sort of large fowl with strong running legs. Glouteux have been dubbed the 14th dumbest creature in the known universe by the famous biologist Dr. Ebb Anguimon. Their extremely limited brain basically thinks of only two things: moving and eating. Their stupidity doesn't mean that they aren't dangerous: they are voracious and, with their size and strength, they can easily overpower a human and swallow them whole. Still, they are incredibly stupid and very easy to trick: once they spot you, they will run after you, no matter what. If a pit is between you and it, the glouteux will run straight over the edge of the pit. If it survives the fall it will stare blankly at the wall it faces. Moreover, glouteux do not recognize danger of any sort, and will walk in front a pack of kensha beasts, as if they weren't even there!

Hah, there could be a variety that's based on that.(Glouteux Harpy, anyone? Razz )

Alrighty, I've decided to call them, "Glouteux Harpies".Oh, the irony...being named after the dumbest creature in Felarya, when you're pretty damned smart... Razz

Haha

*high five*

Wouldn't it be funny to see them insult each other's intelligence with long-winded and elaborate derogatory insults?

Argh.. Please just ignore/block him. He's nothing but a rude self- righteous jerk, of the kind that really don't worth one's time...
