They were here and might return
Journeying the realms of virtu-reality where wo-man strives to decipher the conundrum........Note that: 1) may contain scary content. 2)In my ken, all beings thought of being gods are entities from other dimensions with supernatural powers way beyond regular human capacity. This made many people who have experienced their presence mis-perceive them as gods, demi-gods, etc.....Things change when a proportion of humans evolves into 'luminous' or the exohumans return; whichever may happen first...

Basajaun

Basajaun | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

In Basque folklore, Basajaun (pl. basajaunak) is a huge, hairy humanoid dwelling in the woods who protects flocks of livestock and teaches skills such as agriculture and ironworking to humans.

 

He is known as the first farmer from whom man learned about the cultivation of cereals and as the first blacksmith and the first miller, from whom man stole the secret of making the saw, the axis of the mill and how to weld the metals.

 

He gives shouts in the mountains, when a storm approaches, so that the shepherds may withdraw their sheep...

Werehyena

Werehyena | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

A Werehyena is a werewolf-like monster of folklore related to a real-life fear or hatred of hyenas by many indigenous tribes in Africa.

Some tribes consider werehyenas as humans, usually male, who can transform themselves into hyenalike forms.

Their packs roam the plains and deserts of Zakhara looking for prey.

The human form tends to be tall and sinewy, with long, shaggy hair usually tied back over their neck.

The long hair conceals a second mouth at the base of the head, which mimics the lip movements of the primary mouth but makes no sound.

They take great pains to keep this second mouth hidden.

In their human forms, werehyenas tend to be gregarious and charismatic, many possessing a loud, resounding laugh.

Feng Huang

Feng Huang | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

Feng and huang are supernatural Chinese birds that reign over all other birds.

 

The males are called Feng and the females Huang.

 

In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which has male connotations.

 

The Fenghuang is also called the "August Rooster" since it sometimes takes the place of the Rooster in the Chinese Zodiac.

 

In the West, it is commonly referred to as the Chinese Phoenix.

The Rougarou (Roux-Ga-Roux, Rugaroo, Rugaru) I: The Male

The Rougarou (Roux-Ga-Roux, Rugaroo, Rugaru) I: The Male | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

 

The Rougarou has a werewolf quality native to France and Francophone regions of North America...

 

The rougarou is a French legend of a human who changes into a wolf at his/her own will.

 

The word 'loup' is a French word that means wolf and 'garou' is an old Frankish word similar to 'werewolf'.

 

Through the French culture, the Rougarou, or as it is sometimes known as Loup garou, is thought to appear with a human body and head of a dog or wolf...... Other accounts range from the rougarou as a headless horseman...

 

A common blood sucking legend says that the rougarou is under the spell for 101 days.

 

After that time, the curse is transferred from person to person when the rougarou draws another human’s blood.

 

During that day the creature returns to human form.

 

Although acting sickly, the human refrains from telling others of the situation for fear of being killed...

 

There is also a legend about Loup Garou Balls, which refers to a gathering of wolves that meet in a clearing in a swamp and dance on their high legs before going out to hunt prey. 

 

This definitely gives new meaning to Call of the Wild.

 

In fact, the Loup garou came to the Americas with French immigrants and settlers, and it mixed with native folklore.

 

Today, very little of the original lore remains. Different regions have different specifics about the creature...

 

A nineteenth century tale of the rougarou involved a young newlywed who is waiting for her husband late on a moonlit night near the swamp.

 

Although her husband has warned his bride not to go out after dark, she becomes impatient for his return and ignores his warning...

 

As the girl stands there in the chill of the night air, she sees a huge, dark form with red, glowing eyes emerge from the woods. 

 

She is stricken with terror when before her, in the clearing, stands a huge wolf man.  Shocked by the sight of the rougarou, she fails to avert her eyes from the creature’s fiendish gaze before it retreats back into the woods.

 

Remembering the tales of the rougarou, she locks herself in the woodshed each night of the full moon and tells no one of her experience.

 

Since her husband frequently works at night, he doesn’t know that she locks herself up on each full moon.

 

Finally, the allotted time of a year and a day passes. Her husband, quite unexpectedly asks her if she has ever waited for him at night by the edge of the woods.

 

The young wife lies and says that she hasn’t. 

 

Her husband looks straight into her eyes and replies that he knows she has because he was the rougarou she encountered a year and a day ago.

 

He goes on to tell her than since she had kept her silence about the experience for the requisite year and a day, the curse is broken for both of them...
