Favorite Legendary Creature
A few days ago I posted asking about your favorite supernatural creatures. Lhinelle responded with the Peryton - something I never knew about (although I'm reminded of something from World of Warcraft...)! It is a stag-bird hybrid with a penchant for human flesh.
When I made the post, I never answered myself. My favorite legendary/supernatural/mythical creature is the griffin, although the hippogriff comes in an extremely close second. Something about the way they look... I've always wanted to make a plush griffin. I saw a website that belonged to a doll artist who did just that and they were so amazing...
I also have a fondness for the ever popular, horribly cliched dragon. I know so many Pagans obsessed with them. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed... I just find their lore and look attractive. I have a few dragon statues around the house and garden. I think of them more as gargoyles than the menaces that they were to many Indo-European cultures.
