NirVanA Bestiary: 01 by thelivingmachine02 NirVanA Bestiary: 01 by thelivingmachine02
since my story is based on religion and whatnot, i thought i'd make a bestiary of the creatures in the NirVanA universe... most of the creature are gonna be of biblical origin, but the rest are based on mythological beings...
----------
the Banshee:
originally from irish mythology... said to be a female faerie (spirit) that wails to warn of an upcoming death in a certain family... if many are gathered, death is to upon someone great or holy... their importance in NirVanA is the same as the folklore... but they appear to anyone who will lose someone close to them... they appear in all three installments...

the Adlet:
originally from inuit mythology... said to be the spawn of a human women and a red dog... they thirst for blood and are savages... their role in NirVanA is pretty much the same, but they travel in packs... much like wolves... they play a small role and only appear in the first installment... nevertheless, they are a force not to be reckoned with...
----------
this is just two of the many creature in NirVanA... there are much bigger and more fierce creatures coming soon... but for now, i'mma leave a list of creatures that'll be in the bestiary...

the Ajatar
the Níðhöggr
the Yuki-onna
the Doppelgänger
the Roc
the Basilisk
Fenrir
the seven deadly sins (Luxuria, Gula, Avaritia, Acedia, Ira, Invidia, and Superbia)
the Ziz
Behemoth
Leviathan...

for now that'll do... but i need help with more creatures... so if anyone actually reads all this and isn't bored, can they suggests some material? please?

You should try to draw the Mothman.
It's probably the must peculiar mythological being I've ever heard about, mostly due to the strong fact and sightings.
It is not a hostile creature, but brings ill omens. The areas where sightings of it where reported, all had a disaster - Mostly natural, but sometimes also things like explosions, killing multiple people.

On another note; a Golem would also rock. ;)

You can always look in greek mythologies and Japanese myths as well, they have creaters such as harpies, hydra, ... and a snow spirit that I forget the name of... hm... I'll try and remember that snow one.

I know that you could probably find some dragons obviously for chinese, you could probably turn a few of the gods and goddesses of cultures into a foe or what not, and there's always the bathroom ghost of jaaapaaaaan... who is really weird since he licks bathrooms clean o.e

uuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhh... oooooookay, creepy japanese ghost... anyway, i was thinking of adding dragons, but i just settled with one... not really sure what kind of dragon she is, or if she's really based on a mythological one, but she's small, resembles a butterfly, and her name is tanith... and i was thinking of that god twist, but what i'm thinking of revolves around just one god... but i guess i can go on to say that that one god is the creature of those lesser gods... hmm... maybe that'll work... i'mma look more into the idea... thanks!

You can say they're demi-godish beings, like instead of a god or goddess a demon or angel in your sence working for a higher up.

yeah, yeah... this is a good idea! hmm... but i don't know any gods to convert... well, the only ones that come to mind are those greek gods, but i'm gonna need something a little more not known... umm... i'll dig up some info on other religion's gods and see what i can come up with... again, thanks!
