Creatures list   Leave a comment

This is the list of all the creatures I have gathered. Some I have made up myself, and others I have found through research and have reliable resources – i.e., books, websites, etc. I will say whether or not the creatures are my own, or where I have got them. I will list the sources in which I got all the information, that way I cannot be sued for plagiarism or fraud.

All kinds of creatures will be listed here – light, dark, good, evil, cute, ugly, tall, tiny, etc.

Creatures like the Vampire, Werewolf and your average every day Fairy, Elf and such won’t be listed, seeing as most lore in already known about those. However, there are several types of Elves and Fairies, and whatever I find will be posted in this page. If I find different tales on Vampires and Werewolves, I will also post it just for you all. Hell, maybe I WILL post the known lores of Werewolves and Vampires – movie and cultural – just to say that I covered everything. If I do, it probably won’t be for a while, though!

I hope you find all that I post on this page interesting and perhaps useful in some way!

Catomines My verson of a werecat, with a twist. They do not infect people with their bite, and are very docile, are often submissive, and very gentle creatures. They do convert between human and cat-form, but when not in cat-form, they have small reminents of their feline-form – they have human and feline features when in human form.

While in human form, their cat features consist of Glowing eyes (writer’s choice of color), extractable claws, cat ears. They do not have a tail, and are not furry.

o Their abilities consist of – purring, healing, inhanced eye-sight and hearing, are flexable, and are able to jump and leap at great heights and distances (like a normal cat) and with great accuracy.

o Catomines are only females, and submissive males (for those who like slash). Females are called Catia and the submissive males are called Catir, and the dominant males are called Catoa. As a group, the species is called Catomine(s). Submissive males can get pregnant, and often have multiple in one pregnancy – up to quintuplets (5 babies) than the females. Catomine pregnancies are called a LITTER, even though a ‘litter’ means more than one – which usually only applies to submissive pregnancies. Most female pregnancies only birth one, sometimes twin, kits.

0 Baby catomines are considered kits (kittens) or cubs.

Like a werewolf, Catomines live in a pack, only instead of a ‘pack’, they consider their large family a pride.

A catomine’s cat-form consists of all types, sizes and colors. Most are that of lions, but there are panthers, cheetahs, leopards, lynxes, cougars, jaguars and even hyenas. Some even have domestic feline forms.

This is my creation. I created this Catomine creature. I hope you all enjoy it and put this weird imagination of mine to good use!

Sidhe

Identification: The Sidhe are thin, up to six-feet in height, handsome and young-looking despite their great age. Their forms are shadowy, and they can only fully materialize in the presence of a human. Even their beauty is that of another world. Their skin is soft, their hair is long and flowing, their clothes blidingly white. Their voices are sweet and seductive and their bagpiping unrivalled.

Habitat: The Sidhe live under faerie hills, although there are stories of fantasic floating islands peopled only by the most beautiful Faeries.

Species of Creature: Light Elf, Faery.

Good or Evil: Ultimately good, with overprotective tendencies when dealing with their own kind and offspring.

Vily

Identification: The majority of Vily have fair complexions, long curly hair of various colors and shimmery white clothing or wear a covering of green leaves. They sometimes have invisible wings which allow them to fly through the air. The Vily who live in the deep forested areas are usually larger and more formidable than those who live in the meadows that surround the forest. The vily can most easily be recognized when they take the form of exquisitely beautiful young people. They are shape-shifters – they have their human form (which is that of a beautiful/handsome person), and they have their animal forms, which is usually that of white horses (known as Vila-horses), silver wolves or falcons.

Habitat: Any tree can harbour a Vila. The Vila’s life is bound to that of their tree, though they may wander far away and not visit for years. If a Vila-tree is cut down, a Vila will die, and their companions will come and avenge their deaths – by attacking and killing those who were responsible. The favorite trees of the Vily are fruit and nut trees, firs and beeches. They also live next to streams or in fabulous white fortresses and watch-towers on mountain-tops. Some live inside flax plants, but these flax Vily are very rare. Most Vila-trees are found in thick forests, and most Vily-forests are located around eastern Europe.

Species of Creature: Dusky Elf, possibly a relative to the Greek NEREIDES.

Good or Evil: Not good, I’m affraid. They hate humans, especially those who get too close to their forests. The female Vily hate all females not Vily, and are prone to fits of jealousy – jealousy over beauty. Each female Vila will claim that they are the most beautiful, and if she is met with another more beautiful than she, the Vila will go into a fit of rage and jealousy and most likely attack and kill. Even other female Vila, but especially female humans. The male Vily are protective of their mates and of their clans, and should any human get close enough to their mate or offspring, they are as good as dead. It is also been known that the Vily will sometimes use their alluring beauty to lure humans to them, just to slaughter them for game.

Of course, you could turn this all around and have the Vily (the plural name, verses the single Vila) be good and use your imagination. Whatever you like, really!

Dames Vertes

Identification: The Dames Vertes are tall, beautiful and extremely seductive, and usually dress in green tunics. They have the powers of invisibilty, teleportation and have a natural green thumb. They walk very gracefully – so lightfooted that they don’t even leave a footprint in snow. They have been known to be called Ethereal.

Habitat: The Dames Vertes live in thickly wooded areas, at the edge of meadows, in forest caves, near waterfalls and springs, and on the slopes that least to fishponds. Are in eastern France, mostly, but have been known to be spotted in the Welsh lands and around England. They like to be close to human habitations.

Dames Vertes are very sexual, seductive beings. They have high sexual drives, and only very strong creatures and humans can satisfy a Dames Vertes.

They live in small familial groups – probably no more than five families in a clan, but the number in one family can be as many as any human family (average Dames Vertes family – 3 to 7 members, which includes the parents – though some have had up to twelve children and two parents). Again, they are very sexual creatures, and once mated, mate for life. They can only conceive/reproduce with their mates, be their mate human, Dames Vertes or other humanoid creature.

Species of Creature: Light Elf.

Good of Evil: Can be either. A Dames Vertes can be your best friend, or your worst nightmare. They have the powers of all four elements, though most strongest in Wind and Fire, though Earth is sometimes the dominant element. Will kill mercifully, if pushed to do so – protecting of family, crops, forests, lands and waters. They have been known to be extremely loyal to humans – to those of whom that have earned their trust.
