About This Quiz
For as long as mankind has been able to tell stories around a campfire, they’ve told stories of fantastic creatures and impossible things that exist in the shadows and hidden places outside what we know to be real and safe. The Unseen has always fascinated, enticed, and terrified us. Those flashes from the corners of our eyes that we can't help but wonder about. We see a figure moving in the darkness and our mind races to guess what it might have been. Was that shadow just the dog going for a walk or was it a werewolf? Was that an eel swimming in the water next to the boat or was it a sea serpent? Was that noise in the night just the wind or the massive wings of a dragon taking flight?
The creatures from mythology aren't just a reflection of our fears, they are a reflection of ourselves as individuals and the cultures in which we live. That's why creatures like griffins and unicorns became symbols of bravery and nobility. We saw in these fantastic things the qualities that we wanted to have in ourselves. So which mythical creature can we see in you? Answer this quiz and we'll let you know.
