Greek myths seemed to be a way of justifying our daily mannerisms and ways of life. The creatures of all mythology have been designed and written in a manner that each of them contains their own sets of good and bad traits. Our ups and downs, pride and downfall, all of it is reflected in the different mythological creatures.
WheeBuzz brings you something truly interesting to find out where you lie in the layout of vampires, mermaids, werewolves and elves.
Werewolves- also called Lycans. Mythology states that these belonged to a race that could turn themselves into excessively large wolves. However, there are other sources that state that this was nothing but a curse where a human turned into a half-man and half-wolf monster without any consent on full moon nights.
Dryads- also known as wood nymphs. These creatures were seemingly the spirit of the trees and were considered extraordinarily beautiful. Mythology says that if the tree they belonged to died, they too would not survive. These creatures love nature and have an extremely deep sense of belonging to their roots and home. They are very attached to where they belong to.
Fairies- The creatures of this zodiac sign are depicted by tiny insect wings or butterfly wings. They are found to be pretty small in stature. However, that is not a deterrent to their mischievous behaviour. They are not very good with lying. However, leave them to persuade someone, they shall excel in that job. Convincing others is a strong characteristic of these people with their intricately and judiciously woven words.
Sirens- The Sirens should not be compared to the mermaids as this might lead to confusion. Sirens originally lived by the sea, but had wings. Legend says that it was the Sirens who were so beautiful that they would call sailors to the rocks and eventually drown them. However, other stories claim that these Sirens would call upon the sailors to the rocks only to devour them themselves.
Nephilim- the Nephilims were claimed to be the offspring of humans and angels. However, in other stories they were giants who were huge, strong and tall, yet very dumb. Some stories also claim that they were incredibly beautiful and handsome creatures who possessed retractable wings of ether. This symbolized their passionate yet ruthless behavior. They are strong and gorgeous, yet vain and luxury addicts.
Elves- These magical creatures were assumed to mostly live apart from society. They had the potential to help humans as well as hinder their lives. They are mortal yet ageless and very extremely beautiful. Values are an incredibly important part of them. They value logic and rationale above everything else.
Sylphs- also known as air elementals. They are professed as the promoters of vanity. They are also claimed to be protectors of beauty who protect the looks of those whom they greatly favor. They are also majorly responsible for the formation of clouds.
Vampires- These creatures are supposedly irresistible. They are said to have an extremely powerful and dominating aura that makes them very attractive. They cannot really force anyone to get something done. However, their art of persuasion makes it tough for another person to resist or deny. They are known to be dark and sultry but emitting an extremely heated vibe.
Centaurs- The Centaurs are known to be half-human and half-horse like. These creatures are assumed to be extremely logical. They can dismiss animal nature in order to establish their rationale. They are very good in their philosophical outlook and make excellent teachers as well. However, the physical animal nature unravels the lust in their character.
Satyr- This character is said to give out a half-man and half-goat look. They possess a strong sexual nature. As Dionysian animals, they genuinely came to believe that they deserved all the physical pleasure as it was solely meant for them. They looked forward to this pleasure in no small quantities. However, as age catches up, they tend to sober up and responsibly take up the job of preserving the wild.
Androids- These creatures possess a part human look and part robot look. These are said to surpass humans in intelligence and strength. They are also very very attractive. However, they are not very efficient on the creative front and are emotionally inept as well. They are impatient with the incapabilities of humans and revolt against this occasionally. They are assuredly unemotional but extremely intelligent and revolutionary.
Mermaids- Pisces characters are mermaid looking, that is, half-human and half-fish like. They are the subject of global folklore. These mermaids obviously belong to the sea. They are seen as far more spiritual creatures than normal humans. They have supernaturally beautiful voices as that are almost haunting. However, the need to kill humans is not in them. They are so elegant and ethereal that other creatures find them untouchable.
