Get your heads outta the gutter. 😂 I’m talking literally here. Cuz, let’s be real, Illyrian wings cannot be smaller than their bodies other wise they would not be able to even leave the ground.
Let’s use Rhysand and the little brown bat for reference.
Little Brown Bat (Myotis lucifugus): 3-4 inches long, with a 9-11 inch wingspan.
I’m going to go with a roughly 1:3 ratio with the body size compared to the wingspan.
And based on opinion, we’ll say Rhys is 6'4. Therefore:
6*3 = 18 ft.
4*3 = 12 in. = 1 ft.
Added together, that means Rhys’s wingspan is probably around 19-20+ feet. To compare that to something, that’s about the height of your average giraffe.
This has been a PSA for SCIENCE in the acotar fandom.
