    Actually, Ligers are not mythical creatures. They do exist, not in the wild, but only in captivity. They are bred to attract visitors and generate revenue.

    The Peryton,

    A creature I was somewhat aware of but recently came across them in some literature I was reading and instantly became enamored with the innate mystical presence the creatures have.

    A hybrid creature comprised of Stag and Bird- they look incredibly striking-

    " According to Borges, Perytons lived in Atlantis until an earthquake destroyed the civilization and the creatures escaped by flight. "

    A long overdue update on this thread! I am going to spend some time on Egyptian Mythology!

    My favourite from the Egyptian Pantheon (well one of my favourites) is Anubis.

    [​IMG]

    He was originally a god of the underworld, but became associated specifically with the embalming process and funeral rites.

    [​IMG]

    Anubis would be responsible for ferrying the souls of the departed into the afterlife. But he was also knows as -
    • The Guardian of the Scales: one of his many roles surrounding the dead included the Guardian of Scales where he dictated the fate of souls. As depicted in the Book of the Dead, Anubis weighs the decedent’s heart against the weight of a feather. The feather represents “Ma’at” or truth. If the scale of justice tipped toward the heart, the dead person would be consumed by Ammit, a female demon the ancient Egyptian people dubbed “devourer of the dead.” If the scale of justice tipped toward the feather, Anubis would lead the decedent to Osiris so he could ascend to a worthy existence in heaven.
