Atharia is home to many mythical creatures, or so the mortals have been told by the Gods but, as of yet, they have not discovered any. They have found commonly known animals (think wolves, bears, horses, dogs, cats, cows, etc. Any RL animal that can be found in the world, Atharia people know of them) and some have been domesticated to help make work easier and/or for food.
OOC: Players are welcome to run plots discovering mythical creatures but the creature needs to be approved by staff first, so we are aware of what is out there and can connect it to our over all plans. Also, be aware, that mythical creatures, though based on them, might not 100% be how they are in RL myths about them.
|Merfolk are a gift to Mataya from Ossian. They are breathtakingly beautiful creatures that have a human upper half and a fish tail bottom half. The human half of the merfolk has traits that give them a more fish feel than human. Mermaids have a voice that is so tempting it is hard to resist their singing. Their songs are often the loveliest and sweetest songs a person will ever hear. Some mortals have expressed that a loved one heard the songs of the merfolk and found it impossible to resist the call. It is uncertain to what happened to them because they have not been found. To cause harm or ill will towards mermaids will evoke Ossian's anger. They are typically found in or near waters.
|Medusas are creatures of varying genders (not all females like in RL) that are always hostile towards mortals. They are as pale as ghost, and can be mistaken as someone from Luminat until their hair is seen, and have snakes for hair. They screech and their eyes glow when they are about to turn something to stone. Medusas can turn anything considered 'living' into stones (plant-life, animals, humans, etc). It is known they travel in packs and have a leader, who often rivals the beauty of the Gods' mortal forms. They vary in looks but always have snakes for hair. They prefer to live in forests but will live other places.
|Imps were created by Ossian, as many of the more unique creatures of Atharia are. Imps are unsettling creatures with a small frail body, large ears, and a long tail. Their facial features are loosely human like but very sharp and disfigured. Their coloring is varied but typically their coloring is a shade of red or black. They are mischief makers, having developed this personality over it being installed by Ossian. They enjoy playing tricks on people, often these little 'pranks' put the person in peril. There have even caused the death of people. Imps will typically emulate a child in danger to make sure people fall for their mischief making. It is said they live deep within forests. Ren Choisi is known to have one as a companion.
