Harpy is a type of monster in ADOM. They are intelligent human-bird hybrids that are able to put the PC to sleep with their song in melee range. Although they appear as fantastic beasts ('F'), be warned that they are still capable of sacrificing the PC should (s)he stumble onto a chaotic altar.

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 20, PV: 0, Hits: 13, Attacks: 2, Damage: 1-6. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

Eating a harpy causes muteness. It seems to also be quite highly satiating, though. Eating a harpy with the mute condition already present yields the message "Tough old bird obviously".

Monster memory[]

With the body and wings of a vulture, and the young yet hideous torso and head of a woman, you know this to be a creature of evil. Emitting a melodious song that does not seem to fit the features, the harpy draws near enough that you can see the necklace of bones around its neck, obviously unfortunate souls who let their guard slip for an instant — all it took for this hideous mistake of nature to do what it does best, kill. Legend has it that a harpy's corpse has strange powers on the voice of one who eats it.
