The Hippocampus is a glamourous animal of the ocean. They were the pets of the sea and horse god, Poseidon and would draw his chariot across the sea. They have the upper-half of a horse and the lower-half of a fish or dolphin. They love being out at sea and are fairly strong creatures with lots of stamina. They are devotional to their god and like to spend time with their fellow Hippocampi.

Lamia was once the beautiful queue of Libya but was later transformed into a man eating demon with a serpent tail. The reason for this transformation has been the subject of much interpretation. One story told how this was caused by Hera forcing Lamia to eat her own children. Others said that Hera directly gave Lamia the monster appearance. Whatever the origin, Lamia has been used extensively in many folktales and stories.
