For a long time, there have been stories. Stories about princesses finding their prince with the help of seven dwarfs. With little faeries with temper issues who hang out with boys that never grow old. People love the old mythical stories, and tell them over and over again. But what if they weren't just stories?
The mythical creatures from all those stories you grew up reading are real. They live all around us, changing with right along with the earth. You probably wouldn't recognize them.
People are always talking about supernatural occurrences, so-called 'hauntings' and 'paranormal activity' well, they aren't at all paranormal. These are the dark creatures. They are always up to no good. They love to see people in pain and love to trick the humans.
That's why you're here. You are part of what you like to call a small gang, and you've been put in charge of getting rid of pesky creatures. Maybe one is in someone's house 'haunting' them. Well, it's your job to get them out. Maybe by talking to them, or doing it the hard way. Either way, it's your job to keep the mythical creature a secret. If this information was to get out, bad things would happen. Your cover up is that you're just part of a group of teenagers who just love mythical creatures. Grown ups can't do it, they would want to kidnap a creature and experiment on them, and some creatures can't even be noticed by them.
Now, there are good kinds of creatures. They don't want to hurt anyone, but some get in the way. They end up helping you or the other way around. Either way, they end up on your team. This could be a good thing, or a bad thing.
There has been a long war between the good creatures and the bad. The bad, trying to plunge the world into chaos. Ruling the world of humans in fear. They want to be the supreme rulers of the weak human race who, for the last hundred years, have been trying to find them to put them on display in some zoo. The good side, however, aren't like that. They care for their human brethren. Even if the humans only want to put them on display. They can't let the bad side win.
Now, that being said, the dark creatures are planning something, something big. And this is where you come in. You must stop the dark creatures before they can plunge the world into darkness. With the help of mythical friends, you just might be able to do it.
Goblins- they are little creatures. Usually have dark brown skin with welts all over them. Nice pointy teeth. Are pretty dumb and need a superior person to tell them what to do.
Pixies- they are the fey's kin. But they do not see as the fey do. They are tricksters and love to see the human's in pain. They are very small and don't have wings. They have spells they use to trick humans, or other creatures.
Sirens- Mermaid's kin. They are the ones that lead the fishermen to their deaths. Their power is their song that can make a man want to drown. They grow a fish tail when in water.
Changelings- As legend has it, female fairies often give birth to deformed children. Since the fairies prefer visually pleasing babies, they would go into the mortal world and swap with a healthy human baby, leaving behind a changeling. While the changeling looked like a human baby, it carried none of the same emotional characteristics. The changeling was only happy when misfortune or grief happened in the house.
Fey- they are the winged creatures a lot of people know about. They love piece. They usually have wings and can use an elemental power as there are four types of fey all which have type of element they can control.
Mermaids/men- They are the mysterious creature in the sea. Unlike their kin, the Sirens, they help the fishermen. They can breath underwater and are amazing swimmers and grown a fish tail in the water. They are usually extremely pretty which can also be a power, or a curse.
Leprechauns- They are the ones that put the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They are very easy going and are usually very rich in the human world. Their kin usually are short, with red hair. They receive the luck if the Irish(meaning is they are playing a game of luck, they will probably win). They also have the ability to turn invisible.
Spirits- This would be the Nymphs and the Dryads. Dryads are the spirits of trees and Nymphs are those of water. They are practically cousins. They are usually girls. They usually appear as young girls or young boys when they are not using their other form. They cannot go very far from their tree/water source.
If you like you can do some research and choose a mythological character not on the list, but no Twilight-style vampires or werewolves, please, only the old school Dracula and dogmen. And please don't overpower these.
