EFFIGY - Devil Bird of Hate


   The offspring of a Wrath and Lust, the Effigy emits the farthest-reaching psychic aura of any Devil Bird, which causes all intelligent beings within it to feel increasing contempt for anything that does not fit into their ideals of perfection, displaying extreme prejudice where none had previously existed and elevating existing dislikes to incredibly violent loathing. Sufferers retaliate against even the most minor attacks with disproportionate vengeance and feel the pressing urge to "punish" whatever they disapprove of, experiencing an emotional high the more fiercely they spite one another over the pettiest differences. Victims tend to congregate in large groups only to persecute one common "enemy" (often a former friend) after another, turning on each other when no suitable targets remain.

Despite its effects, the Effigy is a somewhat playful and inquisitive Devilbird, though it is virtually incapable of locomotion, wobbling ineffectually.
