Dragoniae: Humbaba, Hubaba, Hum-ba, Humhum, Huwawa, Kumbaba, Khumbaba, Huwawa the Terrible

Dragoniae: Humbaba, Hubaba, Hum-ba, Humhum, Huwawa, Kumbaba,  Khumbaba, Huwawa the Terrible | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

Humbaba was the terrifying guardian of the Cedar Forest of Amanus, also called the Mountain of Cedars in Mesopotamian folklore.

 

This terrible monster was placed there to guard the Cedars and to kill any human that dare disturb its peace...

 

Humbaba is a giant, terrifying to look at.

 

He has a large, humanoid body with scale plates all over it...

 

Other sources claim that Humbaba took the form of a dragon who spits fire, though he was a giant at other times.

 

His breath raged on like a hurricane, and his voice spilled over the world as a storm...

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...

Goatman

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

Goatman is half-man, half-goat fierce cryptid.

While many consider this creature to be  the product of a modern urban legend, those who claim to have had a face to face encounter with this murderous monstrosity say that this horrific genetic aberration is all too real.....

 

Probably the goatman is a type of faun.

 

Compare with:

 

*Faun: One of a class of lustful rural beings, represented as a man with a goat's horns, ears, legs, and tail.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faun

 

*Satyr: Greek. A woodland creature depicted as having the pointed ears, legs, and short horns of a goat and a fondness for unrestrained revelry.

THE BLEMMYAI or STERNOPHTHALMOI "chest-eyes" were a tribe of headless cannibal men whose faces were set upon their chests.

 

These acephalous creatures were said to dwell in either Africa or India.

 

The Chest-Eyes were very popular in Medieval bestiaries and in the illustrations filling the Terra Incognita of old maps....

Each Uisge (Ech-ooshkya)

Each Uisge (Ech-ooshkya) | They were here and might return | Scoop.it
The Each Uisge, is a name for the Highland supernatural water horse, supposedly the most dangerous of the Scottish water dwelling creatures.

 

It is perhaps the fiercest and most dangerous of all water-horses, although the Cabyll Ushtey runs it close.

 

It differs from the Kelpie in haunting the sea and lochs, while the Kelpie belongs to running water.

 

It seems also to transform itself more readily.

 

Its most usual form is that of a sleek and handsome horse, which almost offers itself to be ridden, but if anyone is so rash as to mount it, he is carried at headlong speed into the lake and devoured.

 

Only his liver is rejected, and floats to shore.

 

It is said that its skin is adhesive, and the rider cannot tear himself off it.

 

It also appears sometimes as a gigantic bird and sometimes as a handsome young man.
