Harpy

Ocypete is a harpy in Greco-Roman mythology. She is the daughter of Thaumas and Electra. Her sisters are Celaeno, Aello, Podarge (also harpies), Iris and Arke (winged messenger goddesses). They were wind- and storm-related spirits. Their name comes from the Greek word "ἁρπάζω" (harpaxo), meaning "I snatch away/grab". They tormented the Thracian king Phineus, who had the gift of prophecy, until they were repelled by the Argonauts.
