Today’s creature: Echidna (Also known as Ekhidna or Scythian Dracaenae)
Features: Top half of a beautiful woman and the lower-half of a serpent
Source: Greek mythology
Habitat: Caverns of Scythia
She was the daughter of Ceto (Keto) and Phorcys (In some mythologies she is the daughter of Gaia and Tartarus don’t know which is right?). She lived in the caverns of Scythia and attracted males with her beautiful form and then locked them in a coil before consuming them. She later mated with Typhon (Her brother and bore numerous beasts such as Cerberus (I did not know he had mom), Orthos, Chimaera, Hydra, Harpies, the Dragons, Colchis and Ladon, Scylla, the Nemean Lion, the Greek Sphinx, the Blatant beast and the eagle that pecked the liver of Prometheus (Ouch). Echidna was finally killed by the hundred-eyed monster Argos (That’s sad I liked her also I have to admit in a scary kind of way she’s hot).
