Unicorn

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


The unicorn is a legendary creature usually depicted with the body of a horse, but with a single – usually spiral – horn growing out of its forehead (hence its name – cornus being Latin for 'horn' , uni meaning one).


Strong, wild, and fierce, the Unicorn was impossible to tame by man.


Plinie, the Roman naturalist records it as "a very ferocious beast, similar in the rest of its body to a horse, with the head of a deer, the feet of an elephant, the tail of a boar, a deep, bellowing voice, and a single black horn, two cubits in length, standing out in the middle of its forehead."


It was traditionally believed that a virgin who was naked sitting beneath a tree could only catch the delicate unicorn.


The unicorn, who craves purity, would be irresistably drawn to the girl and lie down with his head in her lap. While it slept, the hunter could capture it. If, however, the girl was merely pretending to be a virgin, the unicorn would tear her apart.


Throughout the stories of the unicorn, its horn, the alicorn, is said to have great medicinal powers.


In Ctesias’ writings, the dust filed from the horn was supposed to protect against deadly diseases if mixed into a potion. Or, if you drank from the horn, you would be protected against any poison...

Chimaera, Chimera, Khimaira

Chimaera, Chimera, Khimaira | They were here and might return | Scoop.it


A fire-breathing creature, which, according to the Homeric poems, was of divine origin.

 

The fore part of her body was that of a lion, and the hind part that of a dragon, while the middle was that of a goat.


According to Hesiod, she was a daughter of Typhaon and Echidna, and had three heads, one of each of the three animals before mentioned, whence she is called trikephalos or trisômatos.


She was killed by Bellerophon, and Virgil places her together with other monsters at the entrance of Orcus.


The origin of the notion of this fire-breathing monster must probably be sought for in the volcano of the name of Chimaera near Phaselis, in Lycia...

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...
