When it comes to the history of humankind, there have been several instances where creatures that do not necessarily exist were brought forth in books and in movies. These beings are able to accomplish amazing feats such as fly, freeze men with one look or even have multiple limbs. They look nothing like your average dog or goat and are often a mix of more than one animal. So which fearsome mythological creature would watch over you?
Would your guardian be the siren that lives under the sea- the mermaid? These creatures are both deadly and beautiful and could charm a man out of his life. Would one sink ships for you? Or would your guardian be a centaur, a half-man, half-horse warrior that is as fierce as he is proud? Would a centaur go to battle for you? What about a unicorn? These horses are as regal as they are magical and have healing powers that many mythological creatures do not. Would one save you if you were dying? Or would your guardian be a werewolf? The men who have the ability to shift into wolves are loyal and bloodthirsty. Would one paint the town red (literally) to get vengeance in your name?
