Here is a collection of some of my favourite mythical creatures from an adorable little book I was given for my Birthday a few years ago
There are full pictures separately, with descriptions of the myths surrounding each creature
Amon is a Marquis, in Hell, controlling 40 legions of spirits. He can shape-shift from a man in a ravens head and dogs teeth, to a fire-breathing wolf with a serpents tail.
Amon has the powers of foresite into the future and reconciling differences between friends.
The Furtur is a Great Earl of Hell and had 26 Legions of Demons at his bidding
His name is decended from ‘Furcifer’ which is Latin for trickster or scoundrel
He relies on lieing, but can be forced to tell the truth if trapped in a magic triangle
The Fafnir Dragon is from the Norse Volsunga Saga. Fafnir was originally a dwarf but transforms himself into a dragon and hides in a cave, protecting his stolen gold. Fafnir was driven to steal the gold by a magic ring, gifted by Loki, the Norse God of mischief.
I am drawn to this myth as it has close links to the Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia.
Fafnir finally met his end at the hand of Sigurd, who cooked its heart and the blood gave him the power of understanding every language, including animals and birds.
Richard Wagner, a composer, used this myth as inspiration for his epic ‘Ring Cycle’ of operas.
