Although a more malignant and wretched creature than the harpy is difficult to imagine, a ghoulish harpy outdoes a living harpy in depravity and sadism. This creature resembles a gray-skinned, evil-faced old human with the lower body, legs and wings of a birdlike dinosaur. Its hair is tangled, filthy, and crusted with blood. A ghoulish harpy's coal-black eyes clearly reflect its evil soul, as do the wicked talons on its knotty fingers. Ghoulish harpies like to capture and torment prey before finally killing and eating it.
