Holyhead Harpies

A Holyhead Harpies banner. The golden talon presumably represents those of the Harpy

The Harpy is a possibly mythological and magical creature. The Holyhead Harpies are named after the Harpy, and their team robes include what is presumably a golden Harpy talon on the chest.[1]

Veela in their transformed states were noted by Ginevra Weasley to bear a strong resemblance to Harpies.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • The Harpy is a mythological creature from Greek mythology resembling a large winged bird with the head, and sometimes upper torso, of a human woman.
  • Veela can transform into Harpy-like creatures when they are angered.
