Today's prompt is Gargoyle and this is Carys, Reanna's mother from Shadow Queen. She is from a species of Fae considered a 'Wild Race' that are native to South America, where they are called Stotz. They call themselves Guardians. Everyone else refers to them as Gargoyles and many are highly superstitious of them because of their bat-shaped wings, which are a fall feature. In the spring they grow feathers. In Carys' case, hers are raven black. Further south, Stotz grow brightly colored wings like parrots. They shed the feathers in the fall and most Fae are unaware that they are one species and not two.
