Mulawin is a race of humanoid creatures with avian attributes. Mulawins live not only in Encantadia, but also in a distant mountain the human world, called Avila.[1]

The Mulawin can be summoned by the Flute of Mulawin. Mulawins usually leave behind a feather upon their arrival or departure.

After the Hathor attack on their home, it is believed that the Mulawins have been driven to the brink of extinction, with only two known survivors: Lakan and Pagaspas.[2]


Ugatpak Lakan

The ugatpak of Lakan bearing the Earth symbol


  • ugat means root
  • pak - derived from pakpak, which means wing

An ugatpak (root-wing) is the first feather that grows out of the lower back of an infant Mulawin after hatching.[3] Without their ugatpak, Mulawins could pass off as ordinary Encantados or humans. A Mulawin could regain his avian form by placing the ugatpak back at the lower spine area.

For some reason, Pagaspas could have wings even without his ugatpak, and the only difference is that he did not have feathers on his head.[4]


  • Due to Pagaspas appearing in Encantadia and Mulawin vs Ravena, it is possible that there might be references of Encantadia in the said series. However, Mulawin vs. Ravena is an actual continuation of the story after the events of Mulawin 2004 series and Mulawin the Movie[5]. It also shares its same universe as Encantadia 2005-2006 series, however it is not entirely connected to the Encantadia 2016-2017 series.[6]
    • Pagaspas of Encantadia 2016-2017 series is entirely different from original Mulawin series' Pagaspas.
    • Though Glaiza de Castro and Mikee Quintos are confirmed to reprise their roles as Pirena and Lira respectively in Mulawin vs. Ravena, it is still unknown if de Castro and Quintos will wear the original 2005 outfits of Pirena and Lira or will retain their 2016 outfits, and if they will follow their story flow of 2005 characters or will continue their story flow of 2016 characters.[7]
  • Another interesting note is when Pagaspas mentioned that Chief Dakila of Avila is still the leader of the Mulawins during the reign of Hara Amihan of Lireo. But due to the Mulawin genocide made by Hagorn, it is not implied about the fate of Dakila. In Mulawin The Movie, Lord Dakila of Avila was killed by the Ravenas when protecting Alwina near the movie's conclusion.

Version differences

  • In the original Mulawin 2004 series, the known leader of the Mulawins is Lord Dakila of Avila (or Pugad Lawin) and the known members are Bagwis, Habagat, and Aviona. The known saviors (or Sugo) of their race are Aguiluz and Alwina. Their evil counterparts are the rebelled Mulawins called Ravenas who tries to subdue humans and Mulawins. They're composed of Lord Ravenum of Halconia (the founder), his son Prince Gabriel of Halconia, King Rasmus of Halconia, Queen Vultra of Halconia, Kuwak and Tuka. Ravena's home kingdom is Halconia.
    • In Mulawin the Movie, the Tres Aves are the independent and renegade Mulawins who had fought the dragon Buwarka, and they're composed of Banoy, Palong and Langay. They later assisted the Mulawins, Ybarro and the Lirean soldiers in fighting against the Ravenas and the Hathors, and they defeated the resurrected Buwarka.
    • It is later revealed in Mulawin vs. Ravena that Dakila was a son of Goddess Sandawa and a brother of Lumad and Magindara.
  • In Mulawin vs. Ravena (2017 series), the new leader of the Mulawins is King Daragit of Avila and known Mulawins aside from Alwina, Pagaspas and Aviona are the following: Almiro, son of Aguiluz and Alwina; Lawiswis, Pagaspas' best friend; Tuka, mother of Lawiswis who was formerly a Ravena purified into Mulawin; and Anya, daughter of Aviona and Rodrigo (human). The new leaders of the Ravenas are King Gabriel of Halconia and Queen Rashana of Halconia and known Ravenas are the following: Prince Siklab of Halconia, Greco, and Ribay. Tabon is known as half-breed Mulawins, while Avian is full-breed.
  • In the original series, Avilan is the great ancestor of the Mulawin race and a Gabay Diwa (Spirit Guide) of Air Gem.
  • In the original series, Bagwis and Dakila had helped Danaya in restoring Lira back to life. Bagwis and Danaya had battled a rogue Ravena soldier to rescue Mercurio, who had held his medicine.
  • In the original series, the Mulawins had participated in the Hathor war when they, along with Barbaros and Adjantaos, were joining forces with Lireo against Hathoria.
  • In Mulawin The Movie, Sang'gre Pirena of Lireo aided the Ravenas in their battle against the Mulawins by resurrecting Lord Ravenum of Halconia, the founder of the Ravenas, after he was killed by the saviors of the Mulawin race, Aguiluz and Alwina from the 2004 Mulawin series. The remaining three Sang'gres, Hara Amihan of Lireo, Sang'gre Alena of Lireo, Sang'gre Danaya of Lireo, and Ybarro assisted the Mulawins in their fight.
  • Towards the end of second book of the original series, the Mulawins were seen to be murdered by the Hathors upon the reign of Rama Arvak of Hathoria before the cleaving of the Hope Gem by Hara Cassiopea of Lireo, as this was narrated by the writings of Rehav Raquim of Sapiro.

  6. Noel Layon Flores: "Please do not connect the Mulawin of Encantadia (2016) to the Mulawin of MvR at this point. MvR follows 2004 Mulawin and Enca 2005 universe.
