BANSHEES

Demons who herald the approaching death of a mortal by wailing or shrieking, Banshees survive by consuming the energy force that’s released by a mortal death. The more aggressive banshees purposefully cause the deaths in question.

CAMAZOTZ

Bat-human hybrids from ancient Mayan times, these are the offspring of the bat god Camazotz, named after their progenitor. Camazotz are known to haunt deserts, particularly around Palm Springs, California.

DEMONS

The word demon is actually an umbrella term for any inhuman sentient creature. They are often descendants of unions between prehistoric inhuman creatures and nymphs, hence their humanoid forms.

DRYADS

Dryads, or wood nymphs, inhabit heavily forested areas, and tend to shy away from mankind. Though their natural appearance is indistinguishable from a human, they can assume the form of trees, as well as take on the form of a human-plant hybrid.

GHOSTS

The spirits of humans who have died that remain on the mortal plane of existence, ghosts often linger in the living world due to unresolved business.

GOBLINS

A mischievous breed of demon, goblins can often be found invading people's homes and causing havoc. Their red hue is a result of dyeing their skin with human blood. 

GODS

Beings of immense power that predate man. Though their powers are so great they can't be measured on a human scale, they are not omnipresent in the way the Judeo-Christian God is conceived. They do not see all, and can only be in one place at one time. They have physical bodies, though they can change the shape of those at will.

GOLEMS

Creatures formed from inanimate earthly matter, like clay or mud, and brought to life by practitioners of magic. Once made living, the golems must do the bidding of their creators.

INCUBI

Demons that prey on humans by psychically leeching their life energy in the dreamscape. Incubi (male) and succubi (female) are shapeshifters, often taking seductive human form when choosing a victim before infiltrating their dreams.

JINN

Anglicized as "genie," the Jinn are an ancient species whose control of magic is unparalleled on the mortal realm. They are capable of rewriting reality to their whim, though they mostly ignore the world of men unless they are coerced through magical means.

KRAMPI

Often mistaken as a singular entity (a sort of anti-Santa from German folklore), Krampus is actually the name of a breed of demon that lives in another dimension. During the winter solstice, the veil between worlds grows thin and Krampi are capable of being brought into our world.

LEPRECHAUNS

There are two types of Leprechauns: tall creatures who can pass for human, descended from the Tuatha De Danann, and short beings descended from halflings, an extinct race of small humanlike beings often called hobbits.

MERFOLK

A more popular term for Nereids (sea nymphs), merfolk appear human from the waist up, and their bottom half is that of a great fish.

NAGA

Naga are shapeshifting demons that have two forms: a human and a giant snake. They feed on human victims by mesmerizing them with their hypnotic eyes.

NAIADS

Naiads are fresh water nymphs, and congregate around ponds, lakes, or rivers, and in more modern times, swimming pools.

NECROMANCERS

The offspring of the Mesopotamian god of death Nergal, necromancers are human-demon hybrids with the innate magical gift of controlling the dead.

NYMPHS

Contrary to popular belief, nymphs can be male or female. The first creatures created by the gods, they were called different names by different cultures. The Norse called them elves, whereas the early Britons called them the Fay. (It's believed this is derived from the Greek plural for nymph, which is nymphae.)

SIRENS

Shapeshifting demons who come from the depths of the ocean, sirens use their magical voices to mesmerize their victims, and have a habit of toying with their prey before finally devouring them.

TITANS

The primordial beings who predate gods, Titans' powers have diminished over the millennia. Once beings of gargantuan size, they now exist on a human scale, though they retain their immortality.
