I look around the large greenhouse, pure boredom etched into my face as I take in the vast sea of green, the occasional splash of red or yellow from various flowers dotted about. A bead of sweat slowly trickles down my forehead, and I wipe it away with a hand. I want nothing more right now than to leave; it’s too hot, it’s too humid, and there is literally nothing of interest here.

“Harpies have had many iterations within mythology,” Mr. Evans explained while bringing up pictures on his PowerPoint presentation. “In early mythology, they were seen as beautiful, winged maidens. They were like the Greek angels. However, later writings describe them as having faces like ugly old women and the claws of a hawk.” He brought up a slide of what looked like an eagle with the head of a vampire woman. An ugly vampire woman, to be exact.
“Sir,” Alex said while raising his hand, “how could their image change that much?”
“It’s actually quite simple,” the teacher grinned at his student’s interest. “These kinds of things happen all the time. This is just like how we call the Greek legend Heracles ‘Hercules’ because of different iterations and translations and such. Some believe their characterization changed at some point within the Middle Ages and Dante’s Inferno, but no one can
