An Alkonost is a rare and delicate Light Fae bird woman.
The Alkonost is a descendant of bird people. She feeds by singing.
The song of the alkonost evokes powerful memories. Their songs can also hurt Fae and take their life by singing death notes. They can also end their own life if they are not careful, and if they sing death notes while in a weakened state. Humans, too, can be hurt by an alkonost's song.
Ianka was an Alkonost.
The Alkonost is, according to Russian myths and folklore, a creature with the body of a bird but the head of a beautiful woman. It makes sounds that are amazingly beautiful, and those who hear these sounds forget everything they know and want nothing more ever again. She lives in the underworld with her counterpart the sirin.
