While there are many depictions of the Tengu, most portray them as demonic or a winged avian humanoid. There are two versions, one resembling a crow while the other is of a more humanoid nature, while each possesses some form of magic.

The crow-like Tengu are about two feet tall, feathery with a beak, while the other is more similar to humans, apart from the red and blue skin and their unusually long nose, and some of them lack the wings, completely, as some stories would say.

All Tengu can mimic voices, often to perfection, and this proves to be a worthy skill to have. Whether they are mentioned with gladness or uttered in fear, many whisper their names, names like Qel Dozzu, Jiye Sappok, Koila Doyar, and Shapye Puko.

The Tengu are humanoids with large black crow wings, and while some have more crow-like features others are red and blue-skinned humans with unusually long noses. They are all cunning and secretive, and value privacy almost more than anything else.

They are master mimics when it comes to impersonating someone’s voice and they don’t shy from using it for whatever purpose they might have at the time. Think about the character and where were they born, is there anything magical behind it, how did they grow up, what drives them on, the goals they might have, and think of a name worthy of this creature’s exotic life they are about to begin.
