Air Being: Also known as Iris, a Herald and the Fourth Being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram. In the galaxy, Iris is a constellation, but in human form, she is an iridescent winged personification of the element Air, who can conjure weather changes such as storms and rainbows, as well as thunderbolts of Jupiter. In her left hand, she carries a caduceus or winged staff, which two serpents entwined. Her powerful staff can raise or wake the sleeping and the dead or kill.
According to the vespercestors, the Grim Warlock stole the Winged Staff of Iris and plans to use it as a weapon of mass destruction.
Beastie Bugs: Two-inch jumping insects that look like gargoyles. Their spit burns like fire.
Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram: Five Zodiac Beings from the galaxy. They have each have one magic power: Earthen, Fire, Water, Air, and Spirit. In a pact, the planet Saturn gave the Zodiac Beings as protection to the Great Witch to secure and protect his heir, when the Great Witch foresaw his own assignation. Saturn warned that the beings must remain free, but when the vespercestors ordered someone to bind them on earth the vespercestors diverted the Zodiac’s purpose by prophesying a Vespercestors’ Verdict in retaliation to the Grim Warlock’s 13th Hour. The vespercestors claim the Bound Order of the Zodiac will someday punish the Conjuring Crone and the Grim Warlock and everyone who does not follow the ways of the Ancient Vespercestors.
The binding of the Zodiac beings on earth violated Saturn’s pact with the Great Witch, so as a punishment, Saturn sent a sixth Zodiac Being to earth, a being called Death. Then someone stole Death’s Vial of Mortal Plague, a vial containing the worst epidemic plague that ever existed. The Grim Warlock could release it in the Bermuda Triangle and use it as a weapon of mass destruction. It could spread outside the enchanted barrier into the Atlantic Ocean bringing mass casualty to the entire world.
Centaurs are half-human and half-horse. They are often domesticated in the region of Severance but roam free and wild in the rest of Hoopenfangia. The Sanguinati often use centaurs to pull their carriages.
Cyclops: (Cyclopes plural.) A giant humanoid beast with a single eye in the center of its forehead.
Death: Also known as the Sixth Being of the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram. Death is known by many as the Grim Reaper. After someone bound five Zodiac beings on earth, Saturn sent Death to earth as punishment. Then someone stole Death’s Vial of Mortal Plague, a vial containing the worst epidemic plague that ever existed. The Grim Warlock could release it in the (Bermuda Devil’s Triangle) and use it as a weapon of mass destruction. It could spread outside the enchanted barrier into the Atlantic Ocean bringing mass casualty to the entire world.
Dwarf:Dwarves (plural). A dwarf is a short but stocky humanoidwith an inconsistent body proportion and minimum magical abilities. The undomesticated dwarves live in mountains, mines, or caves. Domesticated dwarves are employed as workers at Mystic Steeples and other Sanguinati establishments, and sometimes they serve as Familiars to witches.
Earthen Being: Also known as Gaia [jee-uh], the First Being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram. In the galaxy, she is a constellation, but in human form, she is the personification of the Earth, Mother Nature, and Mother Earth.
Gaia’s magic instrument is the Horn of Taurus, a cornucopia, or Horn of Plenty — a symbol of Earth’s bounty and nourishment created when Hercules fought with the constellation Taurus and broke off one of his horns. According to the vespercestors, the Grim Warlock stole the Horn of Taurus, so thevespercestors cannot sound the Horn when the Vespercestor’s Verdict begins. Someone must find the horn if Earth can provide protection to the worthy.
Elf: Elves (plural). An enchanted humanoid being that stands about two feet tall when mature and possesses skills in alchemy and archery. Wise and magically powerful, elves have pointed ears and tend to wear stocking caps and pointy shoes because they walk everywhere they go. People sometimes confused elves with dwarfs, because they often see them in the forest, especially in Conjurestone Wood. Elves love holidays especially Valentine’s Day and Christmas.
Booger Fay, Valor's Elusive Griffin
Elusive Griffin: The Elusive Griffin looks the same as an ordinary griffin but is more obscure and inconsistent. Known for its resilient and determined character, a regular griffin (also spelled gryphon) is a beast with the wings and head of an eagle, allowing it to fly, and the body of a lion, making it a fierce fighter.
Fairy: Fairies (plural). A tiny andmagical being similar to an elf, except it has insect-like wings, loves to sing and can fly. Fairies can be helpful to humans, but they often behave defensively when they feel threatened. Fairies constantly produce glowing magical dust under their wings, and witches collect this dust for various purposes. In their natural habitat, fairies often live in forests where they hold council meetings inside the fairy rings they build, often out of mushrooms, to judge the affairs of humankind. Even though they resemble tiny beautiful humans, people frequently confuse fairies with brownies, gnomes, elves, pixies, kobolds, sylphs, and sprites.
Faun: A human/goat hybrid, usually, either wise or mischievous. Both male and female fauns have human upper bodies with legs and hooves of a goat. Both male and female fauns have goatlike ears and beards, but mostly the male fauns have horns.
Fipinfeter: A tall, bony, humanoid creature with the head and feet of a horse that lurks in the mountains and forests. It has disproportionately long limbs, to the point that its knees tower above its head when it squats down. Fipinfeters often unnerve humans and confuse their travel routes, causing the humans to return to their prior location. Only wise witches have learned to bypass this route confusion by walking backward whenever encountering the shocking creature.
Fire Being: Also known as Sethlans. The second being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram. (Sethlans rhymes with best lens or west winds,) and he is the Zodiac Being representing the element Fire; therefore, he can cause catastrophic fires or stop them.
Sethlans’s magic instrument is the Lamp of Eternal Flame. According to the vespercestors, the Grim Warlock stole the Sethlans’s Lamp of Eternal Flame. Someone must find this instrument, or Fire will not be able to light the sun during Perihelion, or the eternal flame torches that light the catacombs, chambers, garbage urns, cauldrons, or censers. In fact, the sun could turn black for eternity.
Flying Crestycrux: A large prehistoric bird with a ring of feathers around its ankles. It has long featherless wings and crown of knots on its head.
The long-billed crestycrux (not shown) looks similar but has a bill three times its length, so it has to balance its bill over its head to keep from nose-diving while in flight.
Flying Piranhas: Large freshwater fish that have silvery fins that flap like wings, enabling them to fly a good ways before they return to the water. They have knifelike teeth that can easily sever a man’s leg with one bite.
Gaia: See Earthen Being, the first being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram above.
Gargoyle:Impish monsters with grotesque, humanlike faces, often exposing their fangs or sharp teeth in wicked grins. Not all gargoyles have wings.
Ghosts: Spirits of dead people. Ghosts are also known as spirits, apparitions, phantoms, or specters. The spirits of animal Familiars are also known as Shades or manifestations. Poltergeists are hauntings that can be caused either by ghosts, Shades, or by darker forces.
Gnome: A dwarf humanoid who tends to dwell in tree trunks, underground, or in catacombs where they protect their treasures. They are notorious for hiding in Christmas trees and stealing ornaments.
Goblin:Most goblins are muscular elfin creatures who tend to be mean and naughty. They can thrive better in the wild than most humanoid creatures can, but they often seek refuge in caves. Goblins are bigger and taller than pumpaninnies, dwarves, and especially gnomes.
Goring Rahfaluses: A horrid-looking creature that looks like a cross between a rhino and a dinosaur. Its snorts are so loud they cause earth tremors.
Green-Maned Lantern Fish:A large luminous fish with a green mane of hair. They are very rare.
Gremlin: A rascally creature that unscrews screws, hides socks and keys, and lives to cause mischief. They have unnerving laughs and breathe loudly
Griffin: Known for its resilient and determined character, a griffin (also spelled gryphon) is a beast with the wings and head of an eagle, allowing it to fly, and the body of a lion, making it a fierce fighter. The Elusive Griffin looks the same as an ordinary griffin but is more obscure and inconsistent.
Gruwel: Gruwels reside at the pit of the earth and look like a cross between a blood-sucking tick and a slimy lizard. The Sanguinati conjure them into schlimy pits where they are held bound during the Spurgmulin Tournaments.
Harpy:A vile winged being with the head and chest of a woman, and birdlike talons for feet.

Huffin Flies: An insect similar to a blowfly but it huff and puffs toxic fumes. They land on and nest inside dead carcasses.
Hurinatses are female swamp humanoids with malicious and dangerous reputations. Sometimes they emerge from the swamps and carry off men for a good meal or to be their husbands.
Imps: Imps are small gargoyle-like creatures that love to sit on people’s stomachs while they are sleeping or recovering in hospital beds, or they hide among architecture. Devilish, they enjoy mischiefs and deceiving people, so they sometimes become Familiars to witches who practice black or grim magic. Imps can only be killed or kept at bay with spells or enchantments. Grim witches or warlocks often trap imps into the roles of Familiars by keeping the creatures bound inside glass witch balls, or magic boxes where the warlocks can summon the imps whenever needed. However, the Master must release the Imp before he or she dies or the Master would become an Imp as a karmic repercussion.
Iris: *See Air Being: Also known as Iris, a Herald and the fourth being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram.
Kabobababe: A dangerous creature that frequently takes the form of a human baby, and to lure unwary victims, cries helplessly. Once the victim tries to comfort the kabobababe, the creature shifts back to its true batlike form and attacks.
Krampus: Santa’s doppelganger, another Father Christmas figure documented in The Study of Sanguinati Seasons. Krampus has horns and cloven hooves. Every Christmas, Krampus arises from his lair beneath the earth to punish children who have misbehaved, usually by giving them dangerous toys under trees.
Laughing Lizard: These lizards actually laugh and have gizzards, which humans love to eat.
Leprechaun: Unpredictably behaved humanoids no taller than three-feet tall. Leprechauns are fun-loving beings skilled in making hats and shoes out of green four-leaf clover. They hide their money in trees and holes in the ground using the path of the rainbow, which they can conjure at will, as land markers. If humans ever spot them hiding their treasures, leprechauns love to engage the humans in trick questions in order to hypnotize them, making the humans think they have taken their treasure.
Leviathan:An enormous eel-like sea monster with long tongues and sharp teeth.
Lobnoggins are male and female humanoids with severed heads. They keep their heads girded around their waists by tying their long hair like cingulums (belts).
Ancient history suggests that Lobnoggins were once witches who were beheaded by superstitious Nizzertits (non-witches). Angry because of their fate, they prefer to dwell in caves or in deeper regions like the Cruxvein Abyss and, as such, have become primitive and defensive of their territory.
Nearly blind and deaf, they can still see and hear with their severed heads but only around a twenty percent capacity.
Merman: A male mermaid. The children of Atargatis and Poseidon, merepeople are half fish and half humans who live in salt water. Sailors consider merepeople to be omens that foretell disaster if not the creatures that cause bad luck at sea.
Nethuns: *See Water Being:
Nine-Headed Phoenix: A rare nine-headed bird that sings in nine octaves and can see in all directions.
A familiar owned by Micha DeMise.
Ogre: Giant, clumsy, humanoids that are particularly cruel and always hungry for human flesh. While some are hairy, most have green to gray skin and large heads.
Ostara Bunny:Ostara: Easter’s name comes from the springtime fertility goddess Ostara, also known as Eastre. Ostara is celebrated at the spring equinox in March. The Easter Bunny was Eastre’s Familiar and was originally a dying bird she took compassion upon and transformed into a rabbit that could lay colorful eggs.
Pegasus: (Plural: pegasuses) Winged horses that can fly.
Pixie: Pixies are smaller than fairies are and much more childlike in their love of fun and silliness. They have skinny legs and arms but round tummies, and they feed on nectar and pollen to fuel their high metabolisms. They have a smaller lifespan than humans have, so the female pixies lay eggs quite often. Unlike fairies, pixies cannot fly, but they swing on vines and jump very high using leaves and tree limbs as springboards. They also travel on the backs of birds when they need to travel far. Pixies make their clothes out of leaves, feathers, insect wings, and found fabric.
Pock-Bellied Dragon: A huge flying dragon with a sagging belly covered in pockmarks.
Pribbling Wiggly: A cursed, legless creature resembling a baby pig. Feeling helpless without legs, they tend to bite, even their own kin, if startled. They have adapted their bodies to wiggle like snakes, so they can swim underwater for long periods. They do not make good Familiars or pets because they are quarrelsome by nature and squeal constantly. They are protected by the National Endangered Beasts and Beings Commission because Nizzertits used to use pribbling wiggly skins to make accordions (musical instruments).
Pterodactyl: A flying pterosaur with wings of skin and a long beak with sharp teeth.
A Pulvewok is a type of sea snake that lives in deep underwater realms and has the ability to shapeshift into human form. Pulvewoks make beautiful songlike noises which can cause insanity, and crowds seem to cause them to surface from the water.
The creature rarely transforms into a human form and usually only does so at night. It has the power to cause storms, illness, and even death. Many Sanguinati or Nizzertits will not go near the Severance River at night because of this.
Featured here is a Pumpaninny Theurgist named Hiccius Doolally [HICKY-us Do-LAH-lee]
Pumpaninnies (plural) are humanlike figures between two and four feet tall. They often dress in padded vests and hats, favoring bright colors. Many have made their home in the old catacombs of the Necromanceropolis and are somewhat shy but generally friendly. They love throwing parties and prefer dim living areas.
They have big feet are covered with curly hair and are not used to wearing shoes, so many of them move clumsily when they do. Pumpaninnies are usually leaner than dwarves and have ears as tall as a rabbit.
Sethlans: *See Fire Being: The Second Being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram.
Snowy Sprite: The size of bluebirds, this magicless being is not really a sprite at all; it is a fairy bird hybrid who nests in early spring, and heads for snowy regions as soon as her eggs hatch in late spring.
Sphinx:Sphinx or sphinxes (plural) are often confused with griffins or gargoyles. Some believe them to be shapeshifters—"sphinxters" as Booger Fay calls them. Sphinxes resemble griffins but have heads like a human’s only with a lion’s mane. They tend to be sneaky and dangerously confrontational, especially when guarding treasures or secret chambers.
Spirit: Also known as Ophiuchus or Eclipticus, the Fifth Element, or the Fifth Being of the Bound Order of the ZodiacHexagram. Spirit is the creator of the elements and the inner spark of all lifeforms.
According to the vespercestors, the Grim Warlock stole the Spirit’s Staff of Gleaning; therefore, the Grim Warlock can tap into the secrets and powers of the instrument in an unworthy manner to channel the terrestrial realms.
Sprite: Sprites are seen as balls of light with childlike faces; they are not purely physical beings, and they are smaller than fairies and pixies are. Some believe sprites are the lost souls of children who have died tragically.
Sylph: Sylphs are female elemental beings who inhabit the air. They are nearly impossible to see without magic, but they have wings and are the height of most full-grown women. They are attracted to the energy generated by witches and will serve as guides in magical growth if the witch’s motives are pure. If a sylph approves of a witch, she will brush him or her with her wings.
Teeniny Bug: A tiny, bloodsucking, gnat-like insect that is flesh-colored.
Troll: Smaller and hairier than ogres are, trolls are supernatural creatures found in various ugly forms throughout Hoopenfangia and Diabolishire. More cunning and reasonable than ogres,they dwell in high, dark caves and will turn to stone if exposed to sunlight.
Tussle Bugs: Long-fingered bugs that love to latch onto a person’s hair, skin, or bootstrings. They wrestle their prey and try to fly off with anything they can grab.

Water Being: Also known as Nethuns or Neptune, the Third Being in the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram representing the element Water. In the galaxy, he is a constellation that controls the oceans, rivers, often causing or preventing earthquakes, but in human form, he is the personification of Earth’s bodies of water — a gray-haired male with a curly beard.
Nethuns created the enchanted barrier around Hoopenfangia, a barrier known as the Bermuda Triangle, or Devil’s Triangle. Nethuns watched over the Great Witch and early Hoopenfangian settlers on their way to the country and provided the lustral water for use ceremonial purifications.
The Trident of Nethuns is a three-pronged spear and sacred weapon Nethuns used to fight off negative forces, cause tidal waves and sea storms. According to the vespercestors, the Grim Warlock stole the Trident of Nethuns, which somebody must find, or the magic barrier surrounding Hoopenfangia, in the Bermuda Triangle, could be broken, allowing Nizzertits to potential invade and start witch killings again.
Wendigo: A bony cannibal spirit, a raging monster into which cursed humans shapeshift after succumbing to excessive selfishness and greed.Wendigos have shriveled skin and reek of death. They are mostly found in the cold northern regions of Hoopenfangiawhere they persistently hunt for victims.
Werewolf: A cursed condition where a human transforms into a powerful wolf creature during a full moon. The curse can spread if the werewolf bites or claws a human.
Wiggiwamis originated when witches hexed other human beings for eavesdropping on their private incantations, thus they became earless. The more evolved Wiggiwamis can read lips.
They are blood drinkers, but cannot detect a witch until they gnaw them, and the blood burns in their mouths. They make grunting sounds, and their eyes glow.
Scattered mostly in the Bogamuckla and Diabolishire region, they are viewed as bottom-feeding, hybrids with no magic. Many live in forests and caves, while the more evolved, human-looking hybrids can almost blend with Nizzertit society.
Yeti:A polar bear, ape type humanoid similar to a creature known as bigfoot, or Sasquatch, except that yetis tend to dwell in the cold and snowy regions of Diabolishire and Bogamuckla, in northern Hoopenfangia. Reclusive, Yetis are covered thick white hair and walk like humans on their two back legs.
Zodiac Beings: *See the Bound Order of the Zodiac Hexagram. Five zodiac beings with diverse magic: Earthen, Fire, Water, Air, and Spirit solicited by the Great Witch from the galaxy to protect his heir. And after a Stargazer bound the beings on Earth and their powerful instruments were stolen (as warned by the planet Saturn), Saturn sent a sixth zodiac being, Death, so the vespercestors scrambled to find a way to bind Death before his judgment fell on Hoopenfangia. The vespercestors claim the Bound Order of the Zodiac (now used as the Sanguinati’s guard dogs) will punish the Conjuring Crone and the Grim Warlock and everyone who does not follow the ways of the Ancient Vespercestors.
Zombie: A person or animal that seems alive because they walk and/or talk (usually awkwardly), but they are actually dead.
