Appearance of their original forms varies greatly from creatures that are almost completely covered in feathers save for their neck and face, and others who have hooked/taloned wings for arms, lightly feathered accents along their legs and taloned feet. The color of their plumage has a limitless range. These are docile creatures who are streamline and built for flight. They appear much the same in human form, just without the feathers and they often don't seem to know what to do with their arms so they are constantly fidgeting.
