We have discussed veela and their wiles many a time, but I intend to make an actual documentation on them post-move, SO WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE.
  • No male veela (established in canon)
  • Veela are born from eggs. The veela can create eggs by sitting with a rock in the full moonlight. A year later, the egg will hatch into a veelaspawn.
  • Because they are not born, veela do not have belly buttons.
  • Only one veela per egg--no twins, triplets, etc.
  • To non-veela, the egg looks just like a regular rock and can largely be left alone.
  • Until the veela reaches puberty, it can always be found by its mother. That is the only surefire way to know whose child is whose.
  • Veela do not have proper power until they reach puberty, but men are still always fond of them (not sexually unless pedo).
  • Veela are hatched as toddlers because veela are usually too vain/self-centered to take care of a squalling infant.
  • Veela are supernaturally beautiful--their magic prevents them from scarring or their faces from becoming blemished, and drastically inhibits (though does not prevent entirely) the development of wrinkles.
  • Veela have a lifespan on par with that of a wizard.
  • Half veela tend to be more temperamental than normal witches/wizards, and are supernaturally attractive to the opposite sex. They make better artists.
  • People of the opposite sex are always drawn to quarter and eighth veela, but beyond that the veela blood is too diluted.

What about the condition of the egg? Like if the veela wasn't careful with it and just abandoned it and someone stepped on it? Would the Rock Egg shatter like a regular egg or would it be like a rock?

I AGREE WITH THIS.

I think you should include my idea about the charm thing because it makes it easier for interactions with Veela characters that isn't a man trying to hump them 24/7.

Also like I said in the cbox I know I posted a thread once about what their magic is but I didn't really get a concise answer? It sounded to me like we basically were saying they have elemental powers ? But I'd like to further in detail have an idea of what they can do magically. If they have elemental powers can they make it rain? Make grass/plantlife thrive? Cause earth tremors? What can they do.


I NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS.

EDIT: Let me spew about my idea on the charm.

Full veela's have two types of charm: the one they use to ensnare, and a natural dormant one that is always there. For veela's like Marceline who don't actively charm people I'd say that men who are attracted are able to kind of get used to that veela's natural, unamplified charm if they are exposed to it enough. Like Marceline's husband and Odin. Only like it's always a kind of attraction there and if the veela tries to charm them then they can't fight it of course but yanno it just makes everything easier for real interactions that are more than man drooling over veela xD

Since an article during the last days of December 1882, Marceline was revealed as being a full veela by transforming after an altercation between her and a man that resulted in his death by a man she was accompanied by. Because of the incident, she has been painted in a bad light and suggested to have been toying with the men and pitting them against one another. While this is untrue, it is likely that your character wants nothing to do with her.

I'd say rock.

People who eat the eggs should get uglier as a way to protect the eggs.

Or maybe if it makes them pretty but only for like 5 months and you need to eat them constantly? So there could be "Let's protect the veelas of Europe!" kind of organizations. >.>

Besides turning into a flame-throwing bird, how about...
  • Can turn their charm on to basically make a man do whatever they want.
  • Are particularly good at growing things.
  • If a lot of veela are in one area and in a foul mood, foul weather occurs.
  • poop diamonds
  • Are incredibly artistic/musical/etc--can produce beautiful works, basically.

Only veela can tell a rock from an egg.

Their voices can also charm people? Or like people stop to hear like thet're drugged.

What if we make them even more like birds - to make it a point that they are very much not human?

I like the idea of them mass producing eggs, like having a ritual once a year where they flock together and convert these rocks into eggs under the moonlight. Make it a little more magical and mysterious imo. Or they could burn these rocks with their fireball flames. Or they could use these fireball flames to make the rock eggs hatch after a year?

Groups of veela would be called a veela flock.

Birds are monogamous, so I don't know if we would include that feature or not. Probably not, unless they are monogamous to each other, which opens up a whole other can of worms. (Ha, I'm on a roll with puns today.)

Freshly hatched veela could take a cue from this:
QUOTE
At one extreme, parental care in megapodes ends at hatching; the newly hatched chick digs itself out of the nest mound without parental assistance and can fend for itself immediately


Veela hatch as full grown women. Maybe their rocks grow with them - they become boulders and then they hatch? Just tossing ideas out there.

JKR took inspiration from Harpies (which are closely related to Sirens in Greek mythology) so I wanted to make them a bit more birdlike than human. Feel free to disregard these ideas.

I always assumed that veelas had a childhood and such? Or that they at least hatch when they look like 12? Would that mean that veelas would are shorter/smaller than an actual human?

I REALLY RATHER THEY HATCH AS TODDLERS.
I've already written that Marceline had a childhood and I've had her long enough that changing that would be weird. So like hatching at the appearance of a child 2-4 years depending is something I like the idea of.

And that's fine, I just wanted to toss that idea out there. My idea is that they were normal sized - their rocks would grow with them during the incubation period so that when they hatched it would be from a boulder that they could reasonably fit in.

Also my suggestions are what I am thinking of for the less civilized veela - the ones that live in the wild not the ones that live in Hogsmeade.
