So, my current project is centered around faerie mythology, but I'm looking to include more beings than what is found in the lore of places like Germany and Great Britain. I figure I'm pretty safe with creatures like the nymphs and monsters of Greco-Roman mythology, and some types of Japanese youkai slot in nicely with the mythology I've set up, but I'm a little stymied beyond that. I'd like to include beings and creatures from other parts of the world, but so many have specific descriptions and functions. I don't want to twist something from another culture to fit my needs. Does anyone have any recommendations?
