Background

The harpies are considered a tragic peoples by most in the Heavens. Before they could truly establish a civilization of their own, they were driven to slavery by the Lacademinoans, who use them as battlefield scouts and message runners. With technology replacing both those roles, however, the status of the harpies in the future is uncertain on Eliuna. Large communities have attempted to transplant themselves on other worlds where they might make a faction for their own peoples, but without any experience in the area most of these ventures quickly degrade into violent ghettos.
