White deer hold a place in the mythology of many cultures. Celtic people considered them to be messengers from the other world, and other pre-Indo-European cultures, especially in the north. Arthurian legend states that the creature has a perennial ability to evade capture; and that the pursuit of the animal represents mankind’s spiritual quest.

Socotra Island, Yemen. "The Island of Bliss" dragon's blood tree (Dracaena Annabari) The tree is so called because when the dragon's blood tree is cut down or one of its breaks off, it "bleeds" a dark red raisin. Early Greek, Roman and Arab civilizations believed that this liquid had medical benefits and in the 1700s, Italians used it to stain wood used in the making violins. Today's, dragon's blood is still sometimes use in special photographic processes.
Wendigos are an interesting type of monster, because they are born out of humans doing something believed to be inherently wrong. When humans eat another human's flesh and begin to live in the woods, they turn into wendigos. I find them to be worse than something like a vampire or a werewolf, because they have chosen to do something wrong intentionally. They did something that is very foul: they became cannibals. As a result, they turn into something disgusting and disturbing.
