watching some "um, actually" videos on youtube and stumbled across the mythology episode, only to get annoyed at their only question with filipino folklore.
they show a drawing (see below) with the caption "alan," which IS a monster from the tinguian tribe that has wings. however it's literally a cropped version of the wikipedia photo for the manananggal.
alan can't separate their body in half, that's very famously a manananggal thing!!! how did they get this wrong. gahhh
