    I made a lj friend very happy by writing a story with a golem in it a while back.

    I wasn’t sure what you meant, but if you mean “relative to vampires and zombies” that makes sense.

    Golems rock.

    Seconding golems.

    Outside of Fire Emblem and My Little Pony, is there anything with pegasi in it? Because pegasi. Especially either fully sapient pegasus warriors, or pegasus-mounted cavalry. Fighting dragons either way.

    Skinchangers other than werewolves–leopardfolk and berserkers (I mean the classic mythological “put on a bear sark to turn into a bear” kind) in particular.

    Well, there’s “Pegasus vs. Chimera,” but that probably doesn’t count.

    Caissa, the classical goddess of chess.

    That would be ‘all the ones from cultures of color’.

    I could use some more Garudas. Nagas, too.
