- —Harry's observation of a Bennu
Being somewhat large and having a certain resemblance to the Phoenix, Bennu have their body covered in purple feathers, while also having five long and slender tail feathers. They share these physical characteristics with their ethereal form, being capable of switching at will, much like other Void creatures.
