What's your favourite mythological creature?

question

#1

I’m writing a novel about mythological creatures (Elves, witches, wendigos, etc) and I need ideas for future reference.
If anyone could give me some ideas for this It’d be very appreciated :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


#2

Valkyries!! But that may just be my inner lesbian speaking, lmao. They ARE pretty neato though.


#3

Succubuses or Incubuses. I think they could add depth to any mythological books because they could be used as prostitutes or something. Sorry about the dirty thoughts, I am a teenager so yeah…


#4

Jackalopes!

Followed closely by gargoyles, or “grotesques” as they’re supposed to be called.

A gargoyle with a pet jackalope would just be the bomb.


#5

The story is set in the Eastern Siberian Taiga (One of the biggest forests in the world) but I guess I could incorporate demons
It’s fine also, I’m a teenager too ^^^

Kelpies aren’t actually like that, but I like it anyway ^^

So a dragon?

I can say that my least favourite is a Noodle Mermaid.

Which one?


#11

PERYTONS!!! Once I did a whole painting of a peryton carrying a bloody human arm in its mouth over a Greek vineyard for a science project. My teacher asked to keep it. She was laughing so hard she almost cried.

For reference:


Look at that majesty. So cool.


#12

Aw yiss! Just saw your post. Now we have two perytons in the thread.
