The Melodon was a predecessor of the Avia family but also shows some ties with the Hermeplaythis. Sounds could be made by the direction and velocity the Melodon chose to move. Along with its music, it could also be an attractive sight to see, like an extravagant stunt kite. It could create its own music as it danced effortlessly through the air.
Some anchient cultures believed it to be a god of some sort. But it pooped on them just as any other bird predecessor would.
