Flare Harpies
Danger Level:  Moderate

Flare Harpies are a rare breed of Harpy that have an affinity for fire magic. Although they have been known to live in cold regions, most can be found in dry tropical climates such as deserts.  Flare Harpies typically have a light-brown or bronze skin tone, with white or pink,feathers. Their sub-species is believed to have originated long ago at the mating of an Incubus and a Harpy.  This would explain Flare harpies' natural beauty, sharp minds, and affinities for fire magic.

Their wing span is very wide, which make them one of the slower flying species of Harpy, but they are very graceful in motion. Although Flare Harpies have an affinity for fire magic, very few know how to manifest it, and even fewer are trained with it. The simplest and most natural way most put their fire magic to use is by engulfing themselves in flames.  For those without great mastery of their fire magic, this fiery display is geared toward intimidating rivals to avoid a direct confrontation and risking having their lack of technique exposed.

Flare Harpies are so rare because they are able to mate without producing eggs. When they do lay a batch of eggs, those eggs have a shiny red coat with sparkling gold dust-like material on them that makes them highly sought after by collectors looking to make a considerable profit, and by mages that believe the eggs grant the holder with strong fire magic. The problems that collectors face is that the Flare Harpies incubate their eggs in fire and hide the nests very well. These nests that sustain the fire are made of flamable material that is held together by material that is non-flamable.

I love the diea of Harpies being capable of using Fire magic and living in deserts. It is very fitting. I also love the fact that you made it that not all harpies can use fire magic, despite having an affinity for it. Having a whole race capable of doing something is something, but having a select few capable of doing some things despite wanting to do it is unique in itself. Smile

This is good. It also fits with my affinities idea, so that makes thing easier for me.

Thanks for the feedback.

In all honesty, I'm still trying to find a happy medium with this idea. Species creation isn't really my strong suit XP

I'm glad to see it's not as bad as I thought though.
