Amanda was given the harpy as a mentor and a mintor in an atempt to civilize her. But thir bond became so much more, with Amanda adopting the bird, and Zareen happily settling into a stable family lifestyle. She calls Amanda "Mama Bird." Santa brought Zareen a exotic metal-eating Pea-hen, and their family has expanded as Amanda has since married Torvo, and they are expecting a little one. Zareen is very excited for this, and looks forward to baby sitting. She also helps take care of Winnie the Maine Coon and Zipper the rescued dog. She also puts seed out for local birds on their patio. There are some theories though about Zareen's past, and her possible family. One is that her great-great grandmother is the Harpy Caelano. No one is quite sure how to prove this, however and it remains gossip...

Zareen spent part of the summer of '18 at a friend's ranch in Arizona, and there learned to ride "Fat Tony" the pony. She's unable to fit on most styles of saddle given her body type, but she improvised and rode him very well. She very much enjoyed hunting chicken eggs but was less then impressed with the goats, who chased her.

Little is officially known about Zareen's past. That she was given to East Briar under special circumstances, and that her mysterious benefactor gave the school a large endowment for her care and upkeep. The Dean has hinted that she was a sort of Lab experiment that had been studied for some time and her particular project was about to be "Terminated" when she was rescued and brought to the school. She was mostly feral upon her arrival- uncommunicative, bity and prone to clawing. The vice-Dean Jasmine made arrangements for Amanda [an air cavalry officer in her father's organization] should be put in charge of her care. The two quickly bonded and Zareen has made notable progress since.

Zareen has quickly blossomed into a happy young bird. She is taking early elementary classes and seeing the school's Speech Therapist. While it's clear she understands Greek, Turkish and English, her verbal skills are stunted. She is also taking singing lessons with East Briar music teacher Michel. Her vocal range is at least three octaves.
Another interesting behavior is the continuous organic art she applies to the wall of her bedroom. Notable events are sketched on, usually with paint pens, of important [to her] people and things. Zareen has evidenced a fear of large birds, other harpies, fire and dogs. She has also expressed fear the "Lab People" will one day return to claim her.
As her grasp of the English language has progressed and her understanding of social norms expanded, she was given more freedom around the school, then the area and now she's taken to "heroing" around the city with her friends. Her friends at the nearby Lemurian Embassy have let her borrow armour to wear while doing so.

Zareen's actual age is unknown though evidence has been found suggesting she is close to a century. She doesn't remember anything before living in the labs where she was moved around as needed. She does display instinctive behavior and will weave "nests" if the right materials [ cloth, twings, found objects, etc.] are provided. These are conical in shape and used for storage and sleeping. She often gives them to expectant mothers.
She has evidenced certain behaviours in finding people with particular livers and attempting to subdue them. It is believed to have been trained into her as a search function in the lab. Currently these behaviors are deemed unacceptable and are being removed.
She displays several traits associated with the Harpies of Legend, namely when alarmed her feathers take on the quality of bronze, in weight and hardness. She is capable of shedding feathers as a defense mechanism. Unlike most depictions of harpies Zareen has fully functional arms and hands. At this time it is unknown if this is a mutation, a manmade augmentation or natural for her subspecies.
Her eyes are a warm shade of golden brown with a slit pupil similar to a cat. Her teeth are serrated much like a shark and she has four digits on hands and feet. Medical staff have theorized her avian traits are derived from an Owl, rather then a Hawk, but are unable to verify this. Recent tests suggest Zareen is of Empyrean stock, after she produced a sonic shriek that destroyed a large robot.

WIP From Liira's page: -Zareen "The Golden" is a young butter-coloured harpy. Records suggest she is the great grand-daughter of the Harpy Caeleno. She was found as a hatchling somewhere in Anatolia and captured. Since then records are few and information scarce. It is believed she was transferred from laboratory to laboratory as a test-subject. Her ability to sense "Good" livers was rewarded. She wears a shock-collar for the saftey of others. Currently she lives at East Briar as a special needs student, with efforts made to integrate and normalize her. So far the results are mixed. Her handler, a Sky Cavalry named Amanda, is teaching her to speak properly- though she seems to understand English, Greek and Turkish. Interactions with other winged people are not yet recommended.-
