    I have a few. I'll give you links to some pictures of them or websites about them.

    1. Leviathan.

    -Leviathan is my all-time favorite creature. The way the book of job describes him and how they show what he looks like is just amazing. He's got skin that not even the sharpest blade could pierce, and no magic could penetrate. It said God Himself, couldn't even take down Leviathan, which I though was awesome that Leviathan is THAT strong! They did say, though that God summoned Behemoth which is a land-dweling creature of titanic size similar to the size of Leviathan, to kill Leviathan. Behemoth ended up killing Leviathan sadly, but Leviathan definitely had his impact on the world. I think they said he caused major floods and tsunamis that wiped out thousands every time they occurred. I also love he colors blue and green which are the colors of the sea, where Leviathan comes from and where he dwells. I also love the ocean/sea, which is where he dwells, which I just said. Here's a quote from the Book of Job:

    -

    "Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee? Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever? Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens? Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants? Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more. Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?"

    I could go on and on, but there's a bunch, so here's the link to the page I copied this from:

    Also, the way Leviathan seems dark and mysterious and is always lurking in the shadows just seems so intersting and cool!

    Here's some links for pictures from Google:

    2. Lich

    -Lich are by far the coolest and darkest undead creature out there. Lich are said to be a powerful magician or king, who has used evil rituals to bind his intellect to his animated corpse and thereby achieve a perverse form of immortality. They can hold power over lesser undead creatures and use them as soldiers or slaves. That's cool. Come on, you know it is. Well, I think even just their appearance is competely AWESOME! They have eyes that look like plasma and vary in colors. They wear ancient clothing, depending on what they wore when they were living. COOL.

    Here's some images, again from Google:

    3. Griffin

    -I just love the griffin because they way the look. They are also so majestic looking and since it's a combination of a lion, which is considered the king of beasts, and an eagle, which is the king of birds, they are so powerful. The griffin is a symbol of divine power, which is awesome. I really can't give much information on them, but I think they are awesome as well as the other two I said already.

    Peace out! :)

    Do werewolves count as fantasy or would the be horror, oh well. I would love to feel the freedom of running as a wolf through the forest at night. Plus there is the added advantage of only needing a full body shave three times a month

    Bloody Bones is a boogeyman feared by children.

    According to Scott Andrew Hutchins, [1] Bloody Bones comes from Ireland and is sometimes called Rawhead and Bloody-Bones, Tommy Rawhead, or "Rawhead". Though the stories originated from Ireland, they have spread through the UK and North America, and the stories still hold strong in the south.

    He is said to live near places of water (in older tellings) and under sink pipes (in newer tellings). Rawhead and Bloodybones rewards very good children, but will punish naughty children by dragging them down the drainpipes or into the water and drowning them. In addition to drowning naughty children, he is said to be able to turn them into objects such as pieces of trash or spots of jam, which are inadvertently cleaned-up and thrown out by unwitting parents.

    The mermaid is my favorite creature. I like the mermaid due to the image it gives of the deep mysteries of our sea's. A beautiful mermaid with nice hair in many colors, full breasts, and a beautiful tail coming in many colors. But I also like mermaids not just for their looks but their abilities like control of ocean animals and water. These creatures are my favorite and I believe in them. Try this site.
