ibong adarna by onelillwitch ibong adarna by onelillwitch
please vote if you really like it :D.

this creature really fascinated me :D, it sings one to sleep. I treated it loosely and made into siren-like creature, masking itself for a bird. below the lore about it:

Ibong Adarna, or the Adarna bird is a legendary bird of the Philippines. It is believed to have a very long fancy tail, with numerous shiny metallic colors. It knows a total of seven songs that are believed to lull anyone to sleep as well as cure any type of afflictions; it changes its feathers into more colorful hues and shades after each song. Seven color changes of feathers for the seven songs.

Colors were perlas (pearl), kiyas (bronze), esmaltado (emerald), dyamante (diamond), kristal (crystal), tinumbaga (gold and copper alloy), and karbungko (carbuncle /dark red garnet). After the last song, it excretes waste, then finally, sleeps with its eyes wide open. Its dung (poop) can turn any living organism into stone.

Oy the ibong adarna or the adarna bird i thought that little bird was a Filipino myth! are you in any chance a Filipino!? if so you will have no problem understanding this!
oy akala q ibon yun!? at hindi tao!
oh and did you know that the Adrana bird is also what we call "sari sari nga pispis" or the "bird of paradise" and you forgot that that bird only sings to the one she truly loves and that if she finds her true love she will become human!?
oh and that bird also sings an 8th song called The "talletea Maltrevet" or the song of eternal love and this song can bring back the one she loves from death but at the price of her own life!
oh and this bird is also a member of the Phoenix clan! called the Phoenix of Song and Light!

hi. no, I'm not Filipino, but I found that myth on a site with mystical creatures, and basicaly fell for it though it was incomplete :}. it's so amazing, your ancestors had a brilliant imagination. and you say there's more to the ibong adarna myth, just 'wow'. hah I did suspected it sprung from Phoenixes in some way. I love myths and legends, but in my country (Poland) we only have one myth about an old god and couple of tales about dragons or old kings, and that's it xD. nothing as colorful and romantic :}. thank you so much for telling me more about that bird!

OK then when the world was made there were what we call the elemental angels, they are neither holy nor demonic and their purpose is only to keep balance the world. However, when the time of men came they became silent in the mortal plain but they had 13 clans made for each element; Earth or Eterias clans who have two minor clans (The Pulse and the Full clans), Water or Eundes clan that had two minor clans (the song and the rebirth clans), Air or Ayir clans that had two minor clans (The Dark and the Highland clans) the fire or Fiamos clan that had two minor clans (Ilimus and Phoghion clans)
and the last was the Soul or the Ascendiantsonke the clan with only 3 guardians.

oops sorry no time if you wish to know more just xsay xso!
eund sorry if i had not replied for xso long i have been quite busy with my meditating eund all!
