Karasu Tengu - 小天狗
According to legend, Miyamori no yoshitsune (one of the best martial artists & sword fighters in japan) learned his tricks by training with tengu. Despite being called a 'crow' in older pictures, their wings appear to be a bit more like a kite or a falcon rather than crow like. They’re proud warriors, but they are very easily distracted. ✨- This karasu tengu in particular is based off the blue kotengu statue of Tokyos Mt Takao.
in the tale of Heike Tengu are described as “men but not men birds but not birds with a dog but not dog; the head of a canine a pair of wings and are capable of both flight and walking”
