Your Weekend Creature Comforts: Centaurs

Hello again my furry followers, today I feel like I am venturing in to sacred territory. There are some creatures out there that I am almost hesitant to spotlight as I am afraid I won’t do them justice. They are just so famous and awe-inspiring that I don’t know if I am worthy to feature them. Oh who am I kidding, no one’s gonna do it better than Lilith! So this weekend I am featuring the centaur, another human-animal hybrid that has fascinated creature lovers like myself for centuries. Centaur_nymph_Marqueste_Tuileries

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: Lilith’s Back

I know I normally greet you all back to your favorite weekend column, but I guess I should be welcoming myself back. As you all know, I got a bit distracted last week and sadly found myself snatched by some repulsive troll. Naturally my wolves were on the way to my rescue when Arthur had to intervene, probably to keep himself more entertained than anything since my wolves and I had the situation under control. If you ask me, he just wanted another excuse to play with that tentacle-thingy of his from the earth. But I am back this weekend, and I am setting out alone this week, leaving my wolves and their lovely aroma of “troll farts” as my parting gift to the geeks still in the evil lair. Where am I off to? Well, last weekend I don’t think anyone adequately answered the riddle posed by the troll. I am not sure what your vote is, but I think the answer is “a river”. Arthur? Is it really wolves?  I think a river could be an answer as well. But I digress, the riddle this week is not where I am off to, but it did inspire me to pursue the mighty sphinx.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Minotaur

Welcome back you fiendish monster-loving fans, this weekend our creature feature comes as a special request for our buddy Biff. Of course he chose quite a legend for us to go over this weekend: The Minotaur. While some of the Greek mythological beasts we might talk about in this column are more extraneous, this monster is probably well known by those who have no familiarity with mythology in general. This creature has the head of a bull and the body of a man. It is most famously known for wandering the mazes of a great Labyrinth, and typically not something you wanted to come across while navigating said maze. Let’s see what I could dig up on this iconic creature for this week’s post.

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Echidna

Welcome to another weekend edition of our Creature Comforts! Now with the title this week you might be wondering if I am writing about a strange marsupial covered in quills from Australia. But actually no, this echidna is just as amazing in its own way, specifically that in Greek mythology this echidna is “The Mother of All Monsters”.myth_to_life__echidna_by_redphoenix621-d6716vt

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: Harpies

Hello my fellow creature-loving comrades, hope you enjoyed last week’s first edition of “Creature Comforts”, and as promised your weekend is now officially more enhanced with this second publication of Your Weekend Creature Comforts. Now I know a lot of you are waiting for the inevitable Star Wars creature editions that someone like me is sure to write, but sadly you are just going to have to wait a little longer and keep coming back for more. They are sure to come, but I have had a specific creature on my mind recently thanks to a recent book I read, which I will leave for the “favorite conclusion” later on.

The stellar creature featured this weekend is the harpy. This miscreant has been around for a long time in human mythology, and it’s unique portrayal in one of my new favorite book series inspired me to research and uncover all that I could for your reading pleasure.
