Possibly the most repulsive creature ever, the Harpy is a winged monster with the head of a young woman, and the body, wings and feet of a bird of prey. It has no regard for personal hygiene and an appetite that won't quit. The Harpy will strike at dinnertime, stealing all of the food before anyone else can eat. Its disgusting table manners include burping, chewing with an open mouth, not asking to be excused and then flying away with a hideous scream as it throws up on everyone! The Harpy will sometimes attack and eat humans - usually criminals and dead people. This beast dislikes the sounds of brass instruments (such as tubas) and can be repelled by the playing of band music just before dinnertime.
Harpy is a monster in the class "The Winged." She is monster #20. Harpy appears as a ugly redheaded woman with an avian body. Unlike her Series 1 counterpart, this Harpy does not have any serpentine features. Her trading card points are worth 157.
