First, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Juniper. I thought it would be a longshot requesting a harpy or avian class, considering there are very few of us and we are normally considered monsters rather than fae. Nothing else seemed to fit and this made me SO happy http://i.imgur.com/fcfBcpz.gif

Alrighty, so this will be interesting. The mermaid part of me really has no alter persona. Its really just me with a different name (Kalani) swimming around in a tail. I'm kinda excited to create this harpy persona for myself! I have always dreamed of flying and being a bird http://i.imgur.com/lG5PdYK.gif So without further adieu (ado?) here is my faesona so far http://i.imgur.com/fcfBcpz.gif

Her name is Setorin. She was born into a family of scavengers, killers, as most harpies are. However, Setorin always longed for something different - she decided there had to be more than her cold dark forest, attacking travelers and being filled in a dirty world of hate.
When she was fifteen, she set off alone, telling no one in her clan. After weeks of fighting the elements, nearly dying multiple times and on the brink of giving up completely, she found what she was looking for. A world full of noble elves, beautiful and mysterious fairies, and all the beautiful creatures she's dreamed of meeting.
While she has cautiously observed the fae on multiple occasions, she has always been too afraid to confront them and ask questions and learn from them. She is afraid of her monstrous past and that it will lead to her alienation and possible death. She lives on the outskirts of their world, keeping to herself. She hopes that one day a friendly band of elves will find her and take her in and teach her their ways, stripping her of the dark past she holds onto.

So far yep haha http://i.imgur.com/GpvxHxj.gif Setorin is my baby but I base her off of myself a lot. I turn to her when I feel sad and I like to think that we face our struggle together. She doesn't want to be a monster, she wants to be beautiful and wise and live in a world of love and loyalty.

Onto appearance? I will toss up some drawings of her soon hopefully, and I have started working on her wings. I made a thread a few weeks ago - track my progress! Since her escape from the barren forest, her dull gray and brown feathers have molted into the most beautiful colors she has ever seen on a harpy! Her wings are an array of gold, white, tan, many different browns, and a hint of dusty red. Her wings are just that - no arms or hands. No worries, however. Her species has adapted versatile legs and talons that can work in many of the same ways that human arms and hands can. She has long tail feathers that often drag on the ground behind her. Her torso and head are that of a human girl. She has bright green eyes that also switched from grey after her journey.

And personality. She has always been very curious and that often got her in trouble back with the harpy clan. She likes to enjoy silence, but longs to meet new people and creatures as well. Something that holds her back is how her past still affects her now. After a life of raiding, thieving, and even committing cruel murders on occasion, she finds she has trouble containing these urges. She sees something shiny? She wants to take it. Sees a lowly traveler all alone? She can easily take him out. This is why she still distances herself from the life she longs for, she doesn't want to hurt anybody. (little does she know, everything will be perfectly fine)

Well, that's about it for now! If I want to add or change anything, here is where you will find that. Hopefully all you beautiful fae can accept Setorin and show her how beautiful the world can really be http://i.imgur.com/fcfBcpz.gif

No worries at all Setorin! I'm always happy to accommodate. Since everyone's views on fae are going to differ person to person, I think it's important to have a group each person feels comfortable identifying with.

Your backstory is very interesting! I love that her wings and eyes shine brighter now that she's in a better place, literally and mentally. I can't wait to see how your wings progress, and I'll be following your other thread to see!

Did you see the Doll Divine Harpy Maker game? I had fun with it (though my character looked a bit weird as part parrot and part duck): http://www.dolldivine.com/harpy-maker.php

I generally favor the insect-winged fairies more (or the water fae, of course), but I did design a character for the Camp Myth story and setting who is a harpy with fairy bluebird feathers, named Irenidae. I'll have to see if I can find the picture they made of him for the book.
