Hello. Starting an urban fantasy and have the general plot worked out. Now I am fleshing out the background a bit more and just wondered what everyone thought were some generally underused/misused supernatural beings. No vampires or werewolves please. Not mocking them. I like both and have already worked them into the storyline. I'm also using various groups of the amoral Fair Folk (mostly the Irish ones as I know those better). And if it helps: 1) I'm not modernizing the origins, or at least not trying to find scientific explanations for anything. Vampires are vampires because they are corpses reanimated by demonic spirits that want a form in our world, not because they are emo teens that have a virus. 2) I'm not using the "all myths are true" angle, but many mythologies developed out of the same facts. Thus bits and pieces of some mythologies are true. So don't worry about whether the creature is from Norse, Celtic, Shinto, Tibetan Buddhist, or whatever origin. I have no problem with my main character, a mortal armed with an Asgardian weapon (it is not Thor's mighty hammer; Thor is really possessive about that thing), fighting the Feathered Serpent God Queztwhatever. That in fact could be quite awesome. Especially if we can work some chi-drinking vampires and drunk leprechauns in there. Why drunk leprechauns. Why not?!!! 3) Not looking for ethereal beings here. These need to be physical creatures that can be killed or at least injured. At the very least they need to be relatable in some way. I kept the Fair Folk's almost universal fear of iron (and certain other forged items with the reason tied into their backstory) for example, and as alien as their morality is they and humans can understand one another if need be. Magic powers are fine, but no invincible gods or intangible/unknowable beings that drive men mad when barely glimpsed (I'm looking at you Mr. Lovecraft). That does not mean they need be slobbering beasts. I in fact prefer intelligent beings that can pose an intellectual and well as a physical threat to the heroes. Or at least who would make interesting characters. Any suggestions are welcome, as our fingers pointing me to useful resources for further research.
