One of the Harpies. They had the bodies of birds with hag like faces, drooping breasts, bear’s ears and clawed talons. They also had bat like wings and contaminated whatever they touched. They used to harass a blind seer called Phineus until they were driven away by Jason and the Argonauts. The son of Boreas the North Wind banished these creatures under the island of Crete in order to help the seer. Harpies are personifications of the stormy winds.
