About

Unit Description

Victims find out too late that the enchanting creature gliding towards them is not a woman, but a savage, rabid beast!

Historical Description

Harpies are particularly loathsome Children of Chaos, winged creatures with a body that is a parody of a human woman. From a distance they may appear lithe and shapely, even darkly alluring, yet as they close their true nature becomes clear. A Harpy’s face is distorted and twisted, with nothing of humanity or intelligence in its eyes, only instinctive cruelty. Its lips are not those of a woman, but are twisted and leering, pulled back to reveal needle-like teeth dripping with blood and saliva. The creature’s limbs are not soft or shapely, but hard and possessed of tendons like steel, that lend it preternatural speed and agility.
