The Huma is an ancient mythical bird originating from Iran, who was said to fly eternally above the earth, never landing or coming to rest, and similarly to the later Phoenix, dying and rebirthing out it’s own flames every 100 years. It is said that those who catch a glimpse of the sacred Huma’s shadow will come into great fortune, and that killing one will bring death to the perpetrator in 40 days.
