Harpies are horrid, cannibalistic creatures that resemble human women with the wings and talons of various birds of prey. They use their enchanting voices to lure victims to their doom, but sometimes parley with erstwhile victims.[1] They worship demons, principally Pazuzu.[2]

The origin of the harpy is unknown. Some scholars of other races believe that harpies are related to the lamyros, or lamia-kin, but this has yet to be proven.[3]

In Golarion

The ancient harpy crone Nevaki rules over a large number of dire corbies in the Darklands chasm known as the Endless Gulf.[4]

Varisian alchemists have developed a process to distill or create harpy musk, which can be used to scare goblins.[5]
