There are countless creatures in fiction and mythology that aren't in our realm as we know it. Some of the creatures are backed by folklore and these animals were recognized at a time when the world and what it was capable of was just being discovered. From Roman Mythology to Greek, to Native America and Norse, the creatures and beings are vast and all represent something different, whether it was some kind of magical power, or just certain traits that one would want to possess. It's fun to imagine what the world would be like if some of these creatures were real, and it would be terrifying if some other's were real, as not all mythical creatures are like unicorns.
Since these creatures were given personalities and physical traits by other humans, nowadays it's easy to find a creature that you feel connected to. Maybe one is your spirit animal, or maybe you feel like you were one in a past life. Personalities aren't bound by time, and a lot of the traits given to these creatures are present in humans today. Maybe minus the horn and natural, rainbow hair. Are you a pegasus, unicorn, hippogriff, or something else? Take this quiz and find out!
