Supposedly hailing from the dense jungles of the Philippine Islands, this mysterious race of small, deformed half-human, half-avian creatures, are know for their mischievous antics. Locals claim that these HYBRID-BEASTS dwell in the deep shadow ridden abyss of the Philippine rain forests, where they spend the better part of their days hanging upside down from trees in a bat-like fashion.
Far and away the most intriguing aspect of these quasi-humanoids is the eyewitness descriptions of their extended, finger-like toes, which they use to grasp onto the branches as they rest. This is complimented by the fact that the Alans’ fingers consist of purportedly stubby, almost toe-like digits. Stranger still is this creature’s (apparently non-violent) proclivity for stealing drops of menstrual blood and other reproductive waste in order to nourish their offspring.
These animals are considered to be relatively harmless and have even established a friendly rapport with some of the natives who share their habitat. According to Filipino legends these creatures have even been known to adopt human children who have been abandoned in the forest and raise them as their own.
This hospitable nature is not one shared with most of his avian-humanoid kin. One need only read ancient Greek legends of the notorious HARPY to confirm this fact.
