A mythological creature, depicted by a hummingbird with feathers of fire, which is said to fly quicker than the human eye can perceive.
The creature is symbiotically linked to humans, by feeding off of the vigor and enthusiasm of humans, and creating sensations of high morale and optimism among surrounding humans. In ancient times the Pumika bird was frequently included in portraits of noted humans, considered to have the gravitas and super-human vigor and abilities associated with the creature.
