About This Quiz

Humans may have created some mythical creatures within their minds, but that doesn't mean that they're not real. In fact, some of them are said to have existed in the past, which makes a classic folklore tale that much more interesting. Mermaids used to lure in pirates with their beauty and singing voice while other people have sighted the so-called Loch Ness monster. But if these types of creatures are real, are humans actually different from them?

We'd like to think there are some similarities, and in today's mythical quiz, we're going to determine which one you are. But if you're going to embrace that beast within you, then you're going to have to think and act like one. And what's the best way to do that? By placing you in an enchanted forest! You'll have the chance to face different kinds of enemies and choose between different paths and scenarios. But remember to go with your gut and choose wisely, because your actions could determine whether you escape the forest, or whether you'll be stuck in it forever.
