Targa folder with other art you will find here: precia-t.deviantart.com/galler…
"Targa is a multithreading story based mostly on various RPG games. Plot of the manga in placed in medieval-gothic-baroque-modernist reality of fantasy world with domination of medieval, in which constant war between nations carry on.
In result of arising conflict between high elves and necromanciers a war breaks. Necromanciers have gathered their biggest elf enemies and using magic have separated a territory in elf kingdom (Sylfi) creating Raphar valley. It happens exactly 28 years ago. The created barrier was called magical or mountain barrier.
Separated nations in Raphar are: High elves, Common elves, Humans (they are allies) and Necromansier, Orcs, Harpies (allied antagonists)
Targa is a kind of a country, military organization. It was created by 5 most powerful and strongest warriors, further called Leaders. They are dictators and rules, politics, economy and army.
Inside Raphar magic does not work so all the nations have to fight using weapons such as swords, halberds, bows etc.

Featured watcher (I decided to feature some of my watchers that I believe deserve more attention)
and her cute drawings like this one
- my profile
the lack of art means they are a WIP, so when we will have details about them?
and besides, it helps making mental scripts knowing the background, take me, for example necromancy for me is a profession, and its adepts, necromancers, this necromancer-folk stuff puzzles me, so yes, i want to know more about them
I know males inherit the fathers traits. Does this mean hes still het. for harpy? Meaning, somewhere in the gene pool, if for some odd reason the harpy is exterminated, would it then make since for them to start popping up anyway because of the males that had the genetics of harpy even if he expresses no visible traits?
what he meant is: if the common reproductive rules are in charge, there can't be a way to cross-mating between harpies and humans yielding purebloods in both genders, unless of course the genetics involved are more advanced than that, but still non plausible
because the harpies reproduction system would be basically a cloning machine, either yielding a harpy exactly like the mother or a humanoid exactly like the father.
on the other side... this is a basic solution to all the "Chimera issues": hybrid harpy-humanoids, male harpies, and, as Z-Hun said: a harpy sibling of both parents human(with men known to have harpy mothers).
pretty art and history though, can i use as reference?
Daughters are not a clone of their mothers. They are just very , very similar only in physical meaning. Like Olle is a Daughter of noether, she has the same skin tone but different eyes color. And once again, only physically they are very similar. Same reverse with boys. And it doesn't matter if male is a human, necromancier of elf, if it's a boy he will have similar features to his father's family. He won't look the same as father though. Because those males are 'normal" Having almost the same physical features as mothers is only harpies domain.
yes you can use it as reference. But actually if it;s about harpies, I put a lot of affort in designing them so I would be greatful if you didn't claim design as yours and give me a credit if you want to use it.
Best regards and thank you for explaination ^^
okay.. now, did you upload detailed descriptions of anatomy and genetics and such as a tutorials for others? Am I allowed to draw these Harpies? Because I'd really like to. ^,.,^
I really love to learn more about TARGA, also give me inspiration to keep making my stories in depth further ^^
I really love how you've put so much thoughts into every detail of your drawing, both what we can see and the info that we have to read. It makes it so much more interesting than just feeding us drawings.
So... How do children learn magic to her mother？？
To rely on genetic?
I think I see a great Mum！Very exciting!
I have a question, or you may think of it as a joke. They with other species of son, The son he with other race if a daughter that must be Raphar, right?
Or another possibility is that the child could not give birth to children with other races, because reproductive isolation?
I use a diagram to explain...
Parents：rr（Raphar‘s xx ）+Ee or Nn or Hh
1： Son： Er or Nr or Hr+ee or nn or hh
2： 1 girl：Raphar Xr Or 2Son： Ee or Nn or Hh Or 3 Unable to produce offspring
But I have one question.
So they give the males to the father.But what happens is the father died before the baby was born or just does't what to take care of the baby?Will the mother abandon the baby in some village hoping that some one will take care of him?
And it's not hoping for taking care of the child, because they all live in a excluded by the barier valley, so every single life is very important there.
But I must say that it is kinda of sad.They seem to be really good mothers when it comes to there daughters yet when it comes to there sons they just abandon them.Do they at least visit them once in a while or watch them from a distance?Or they just leave them and never come back?
I love reading details about fantasy creatures and you have put a lot of details and thinking into this; good job!
*Warning! Nerd rants! Warning!*
On the other hand, there are few things I would like to note:
1- Creatures hatching from eggs don't USUALLY have a belly button. Their equivalent to belly buttons (the yolk scare) heals soon after birth.
2- Since mothers pass visible traits to their daughters with little to no variance. That would mean color variation is mutation resulted and not so common. This could lead to family identification based on color and designating new colored children as heads of a new family lines.
3- It is very likely that males born from Harpies are sterile.
4- With such low birth rate, it is expected that Harpies are cautious and elusive and extremely vengeful against the murder of their race.
It is also expected that they use long weapons in melee combat (such as spears and staffs) as they support leg based attacks and keep enemies away (that would make their hand nails impracticable in combat). Their flight and possible sense for wind flow would make them superior archers and their implied intelligence could suggest them using arm mounted repeating crossbows.
And mounting sharp edges on the edge of their wings is also expected for Harpies trained for melee combat.
5- The personality section has two sentences about their personality, nothing mentioning their social structure, intelligence, reaction to other races or more details about their diet, combat and culture.
Are these harpies nocturnal?
