Okay, so this is the last installment of my creature creations. I have to get this posted before tomorrow as I begin the blogging A-Z challenge! I look forward to hearing some of your creations. Fantasy, sci-fi, any of them. They're fun and background is just as important for fictional creatures as they are for characters.
Firlochians are also somewhat my creation. They are called giants in mythology but are not really. They stand as tall as the Dargorians, perhaps nine to ten feet tall. Sometimes taller. They are a warrior race, large and muscular but not particularly fast. They are tribal in nature and have blue tattoos to signify ranks and special accomplishments in their lives. However, if they are cast out of their tribes, their tattoos are cut away, leaving them scarred and marked. They must leave their country at once or face execution. The Firlochain tribal leader is the only one who may have multiple wives if he so chooses. Most do not, as the wives will bicker and fight, almost always killing off the weaker ones.
I have to flesh out my Firlochians a little more. They're pretty under-developed at the moment, but I do keep adding to them all.
In the world of Eir du'Brusai, there are numerous other creatures. Humans, Dwarves, Ogres and Goblins. There are slight differences, but overall they are the creatures of folklore and mythology. Gods and Goddesses rule the heavens and the underworlds, their stories are just as unique as their reasons of being called into existence. These will be saved for another time, though.
So these are just a handful of what I've created in the ten years I've worked on my world. I've dedicated so much time and effort into these creatures and their folklore that it is sometimes hard to write about anything else. This is a world full of stories and fun characters and it is sometimes hard to leave. I can only hope that one day I write a book worthy of the world I've created. One word at a time, right?
*Note: This is the 5th installment of my creature creations. Look for these others in my archives starting with Creatures of my World, Kefferlings, Argisindya and These Aren't Keebler Elves
