Harpies are leathery-winged humanoids with a savage, primeval beauty. Their legs end in bird-like feet that terminate in razor-sharp talons, like those of a raptor. With their wings and claws, the Harpies hunt and kill with a savage cruelty that would seem to eliminate any belief that they are anything other than monstrous beasts. Some claim they are the souls of slain Witch Elves given form, others that they are a manifestation of Khaine in his aspect of the predator. They are usually associated with the armies of the Dark Elves, since they know that the pickings will be good, enabling them to satisfy their taste for raw flesh.
Much debate has raged over the relative intelligence of Harpies. Despite their appearance, they seem incapable of speech, and display behaviors that would barely seem to differentiate them from wild beasts. What they lack for in mental capacity they make up for in cunning. Harpies are vicious predators that use their wings to their best advantage, swooping down upon their prey in great numbers and tearing them to shreds with their talons.

Harpies are winged creatures that are found almost exclusively amongst the lands of the Dark Elves. They have the lithe bodies of Elven females with beautiful, if bestial, visages. The similarities to humanoids en there, for leathery wings sprout from their backs, and a Harpy's legs end in bird-like feet that terminate in razor-sharp talons, like those of a raptor. With their wings and claws, the Harpies hunt and kill with a savage cruelty that would seem to eliminate any belief that they are anything other than monstrous beasts.
