Species: Harpy Humanoid creatures with Bird like attributes. One of the most obvious attributes that separates them from most humanoids is the fact that they lack standard arms ending in hands. Harpies Instead have wings that enable them to fly. These wings are more than often covered in brightly colored feathers depending on the harpies Lineage. In addition harpies have tail feathers that enhance their capacity to fly of the same coloration of their wings. Harpies also substantially lighter than most humanoids, with the heaviest topping off at a mere 80 pounds. Their bones are hollow however tend to be stronger than cut through wood and sometimes stone without cracking.
They also have superior vision and hearing, thought their sense of smell and taste have been greatly diminished in comparison to most species.
Harpies are known for their harsh temperament, greed and violence towards males, often carrying them a way never to be heard from again. However this only occurs in females that are going through puberty as they try to find alt mates to compensate for the lack of suitors, once they finish their temperaments while still harsh do tend to soften. Males tend to be humble and even subservient

Likes: Nisos is an individual who enjoys the every day. Meaningless chores and time consuming task are entertaining to him. Being born with flight he enjoys soaring through the air for any reason. He has an infinity towards shiny objects especially Gemstones.
Dislikes: Most clothing. As its restrictive and difficult to put on ( wings make any shirt 20 times more difficult to put on). Small restrictive places, sincerely dislikes being forced in side for prolonged periods of time without being able to stretch his wings. Doors, so good damn hard to open when you lack imposable thumbs or hands.
Like all Male Harpies Nisos grew up in a female dominate society, where the females had all the power and made all the rules. Being born a male subjected him to being treated almost a second class citizen by his peers as a child which he while not particularly happy with he could accept. He was forced to take the odd jobs that no one wanted to do and slowly grew to like the odd jobs. For the longest time he spent his time as running around the tribe delivering messages and documents from place to place in the tribe. As he grew older no one could deny his speed and overall reliability and as such he upgraded to the tribes official Messenger. Delivering documents for the clan to different species and clans. The Documents varied from simple , letters to peace treaties and negations .
He excelled at his job often being able to deliver the days in advance and without a single incident or document lost. So it came to pass that when to delivering an important document that would result in a stable peace between the Osprey and the Eagle clans, it was decided that he would be the Nisos with his perfect tract record would be the one to insure safe delivery of the important document and bring in a new wave of peace between the ancient warring clans.
This however was not the case. Thought the clans were a mere 100 miles from one another , a distance that would take a normal flier no more than a couple of hours to deliver and Nisos no more than a hour or so. The document nor Nisos never arrived that day, nor the next day or even a week later.
Convinced that he had been killed by the Hawk clan ,the carefully boiling rivalry between the two clans exploded into a bloody conflict that resulted in a many deaths between the two only ending when Nisos arrived two weeks later with the document. Seeing him as the reason that the bloody conflict had erupted and to appease those that had lost family in the conflict, Nisos was exiled .
With no clan to call his own anymore with him black marked , Nisos could only hope to find a place for himself in human society.
