Rebirth of the Monster Maker: (Submissions by L.Marie & Bookwraiths)

(First three are by L. Marie)

Irascidate

A small Feykin born from the union of a were-rat and an Orchid Pixie. Since both parents are diminutive, the children get no taller than one foot. They are slender and hairless with rat-like tails that they can use as a fifth limb.  From the fairy side, they have wings that are either grey or white. Sometimes, a child will have bright purple, but this is incredibly rare and they tend to die within two years. A trick that these Feykin have that is different from both parents is that they can take the form of a flower. This is done by putting their tail in healthy soil and standing still for five minutes.  If plucked, they return to their natural state.

Kevlume

Another Feykin that is born from a Moon Fairy father and any draconic creature. These are exclusively formed by the merging of magic instead of sex.  They are raised by the father for one month before being left to survive on their own within the lower atmosphere.  A Kevlume appears as a being of white flame and can blind a person if stared at directly.  Due to the danger, nobody has been able to give a clear description and it is unknown if they can breed themselves.  It is believed that they are created to ward off creatures that may attack from the stars since they are most active at night.

Perclundant

Like many chimeras, this is a one of a kind creation made by a caster who regretted his actions.  The intention was to build a new riding beast that combined the power of an elephant, the speed of a gazelle, and the head of a stag.  After several failed attempts, the Perclundant was formed and promptly escaped into the Southern Jungles.  This beast has the size and body of an elephant and the head of a stag, but the gazelle legs lost their speed when they were altered to support the creature’s weight.  It is believed that it went mad from joint pain and is searching for anything that could soothe its suffering.  This is why the Perclundant has been sighted near hot springs and mud wallows.

(The next 3 are submitted by Bookwraiths.)

Whispordial

A swamp-loving Feykin, this is the child of a Bog Sprite and an Orc Shaman.  Having come from a wingless fairy and lacking fey magic, the human-sized Whispordial can’t fly. They are more comfortable swinging and climbing, especially since they can only take nourishment from hanging moss and algae.  This diet results in them having mottled green skin, but most people don’t realize this because they are covered in thick, knotted hair.  Only their eyes and hands can be seen unless they shed their coating, which is only done if they are trapped.  Without the hair, they resemble scrawny orcs with a skin condition and can sneak away during the confusion.

Roclere

One of the largest chimeras on record and the one that made many casters question the sanity of those who indulged in the art.  There are several of these in existence because a challenge was made years ago, which involved using the body of a Roc (giant eagle) as the base for a chimera.  Needless to say, all of the participants were killed or badly injured by their own creations.  Every Roclere has a different head, which ranges from a rhino to a whale shark.  Rumors say that they live as a flock on the upper cliffs of the Ice Crown, but they hunt alone.  It is also said that the alpha Roclere looks identical to a regular Roc because its lazy creator put a griffin’s head on the body.

Vummox

Made by the same person who brought you the Perclundant, this is a chimera that actually worked out.  Continuing his obsession with large animals, his enhanced the body of a water buffalo to make it three times as big.  Two extra pairs of legs were added and its tail is an anaconda that can reach up to twenty feet long.  The Vummox’s head is of a wild boar to work with the matching digestive system.  This chimera can eat anything and has the strength to pull large loads across flat terrains.  A ridge of plates run along the creature’s back, but they are entirely for appearance and have no practical purpose. Unfortunately, it died when it encountered a male dread boar and was mistaken for a territory rival.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Yay! These are all so much fun! The perclundant made me laugh out loud! I’m glad the vummox worked out for the caster. 🙂 I’d hate to meet a Roclere in a dark alley (if one would fit).
