Urayuli

Urayuli, or "Hairy Men", are a mythical race of creatures that live in the woodland areas of southwestern Alaska. Stories of the Urayuli describe them as standing 10 feet tall with long shaggy fur and luminescent eyes. They are said to emit a high pitch cry, resembling that of a loon. Their long, lanky arms have been described as reaching down to their ankles.

Rumored to live in the forests near the area of Lake Iliamna, the Urayuli are said to be peaceful creatures, unlike the Kushtaka of Southeastern Alaska.

It is said the Urayuli are transformed children who become lost in the woods at night. It is possible that this tale was started to keep children indoors at night

Valhalla (In Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat and various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök. Before the hall stands the golden tree Glasir, and the hall's ceiling is thatched with golden shields. Various creatures live around Valhalla, such as the stag Eikþyrnir and the goat Heiðrún, both described as standing atop Valhalla and consuming the foliage of the tree Læraðr)

Xulsigiae (In Gallo-Roman religion, the Xulsigiae were triple goddesses worshipped at the healing-spring shrine in Augusta Treverorum. Edith Wightman suggests that they "may be local nymphs of the spring"; on the other hand, she also links their name to that of the Suleviae, whom she characterizes as "domestic goddesses". Their temple, a smaller shrine near the monumental Lenus Mars temple, has also yielded clay figures of the genii cucullate)

Zhinu (in Chinese mythology, the heavenly weaving maiden who used clouds to spin seamless robes of brocade for her father, the Jade Emperor (Yudi). Granted permission to visit the earth, Zhinu fell in love with Niulang, the cowherd, and was married to him. Their love was not allowed, thus they were banished to opposite sides of the heavenly river (symbolizing the Milky Way) by Niu lang's mother.  However, seeing the plight of the lovers, magpies once a year fly up to heaven and form a bridge so Niulang and Zhinu can be together for a single night. And so, on the seventh night of the seventh moon, the lovers unite again)

The tale of Niulang and Zhinu, The Cowherd and Weaver Girl, is the most famous love story from China. Their love is celebrated every year in the Qixi Festival, also called Magpie Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month on the Chinese calendar, in August, and is referred to in the rest of the world as Chinese Valentine's Day.

Dryad (is a tree nymph or tree spirit in Greek mythology. Drys signifies "oak" in Greek, and dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, but the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general, or all human-tree hybrids in fantasy. They were normally considered to be very shy creatures except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs)
