Qalupalik is an Inuit mythological creature. The story was used to prevent children from wandering off alone, lest the qalupalik take them children in her amautik underwater and keep them forever. Qalupalik 1 by on @DeviantArt
Alkonost (Fae/Centauric)(Large) – The second evolution of the Harpy. While Harpies and Furies are ugly, feral creatures without much color spare for the blood of their victims, the Alkonost appears to be a true pearl of nature, with feathers of all the colors of the rainbow. They have the most beautiful voices of all creatures, but the effects they spread are far from benevolent. Their voices destroy memories and take away the will to live from other creatures. (Russian)
The creature was humanoid, but it's body seemed to be made of woven wood. It's eyes were two glowing holes, and it's hair was a thick, elegant carpet of moss. It's hands were branches, leaves included, and it's feet were roots that twisted and dragged the thing along as smoothly as if it were walking.
But already the oldest living things had arisen: in the seas the great weeds, and on earth the shadow of great trees, and in the valleys of the night-clad hills there were dark creatures old and strong...and the slumbering woods were haunted by monsters and shapes of dread.
