ABOUT TARGA:

"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.

I have a question. If the harpies mate with the elves, humans, and necoro's, then why do they hunt THEM? It would seem that those three (human, elf, and, necro) wouldn't have anything to do with the harpies, much less mate with them.

war is carrying on between necros and elves. Harpies are necros allies. So mostly Harpies are having fun with necros what is obvious. However their (harpies) unwritten law says that they can do whatever they want, procreate with anyone they want. They just are not allowed to kill other harpies. Of course its different in reverse. Humans who are elves allies are not really allowed to procreate with enemies obviously, so as elves. So it's rather rare (the point is that this is biologically possible)   But still. Love is love. Or rather sex is sex. and it can end with an egg.

*raises hand* I read it too, and i have a question about necromancers

the lack of art means they are a WIP, so when we will have details about them?

one of the secrets of art is the details, every little bit matters XD
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

*raises hand* I read it. and have a question which came up as I reading about how they're being hunted.

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?

It means heterozygotic. Biology aside, reproduction means scrambling parents' traits and the result becomes the child.
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?

aha. JAk mogłam nie skumać że skrót het. znaczy heterozygotic. kurwa głupia chyba jestem jakaś. 
 
  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. 
 good? 

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 ^^

But then the original question remains: do boys who are born from harpies capable to generate harpy daughters due to their genetic material?

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?;) (Wink)

I'm not sure if I understand the question right. Raphar is a grand valley, area surrounded by mountains, (size similar  of Lithuania) where all the species live inside. They are imrisoned there.

Ok. One of the first line in the description of the art above says that harpies anre only females. Both females cannot have children. And it is also said that if it's a girl it is always and only a harpy, they cannot be elven nor necromancier girls. Thats my drawn diagram shows

This was awesome :la:!The way you explain was easy to understand and the art was really detailed!
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?
Reply
:iconprecia-t:
Precia-T Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
If it's necromancier, they just take those children even if the father is dead, because they are allies. If it happens by any accident that elf is the father, and dead, they would probably abandon their son  nearby elven village. Because neighter for elves, neighter for necromanciers it is unhealthy to live in caves. 
 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.  :)

Than you very much for the explication :meow:!
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?
Reply
:iconprecia-t:
Precia-T Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
it's not like abandon. Because sons are comming back to their society and Targa society looks much different from our society. They wouldn't survive in moisture place like caves. Some harpies do visit them especially if they are necromanciers. But after all they are antagonists. Not very positive even if last pictures shows them in positive light :)

*Raise Hand*
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.


Best regards

And I forgot to mention their nests! A hanging nest would be more suitable for these harpies; they are intelligent enough to fabricate more elaborate housing for their infants. And a hanging nest allows the mother to hang near her child during sleep time.

Are these harpies nocturnal?
