Films: Panna a Netvor (1978)
Type: Unknown, possibly Mystical
Location: Forest/Haunted home
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Good
Summary: By this point, you've all probably heard of the tale of beauty and the beast. Well, how about we take a break from all those mammalian creatures and look at one who took a different evolutionary route! Or at least, that's what we think happened.
History: Is Netvor a man cursed to become a half-bird man-beast, or was he a bird slowly becoming human? Who knows? Either way, no one dares pluck from his rose garden, lest they get killed and eaten. But alas, a young woman named Julia stops one of his killings to spare her father, and volunteers to spend more time with him. Netvor soon finds that he'll need to decide whether her blood or her love is more important.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: It is only when Julia says that Netvor's eyes are as beautiful as he is does the bird-man turn human. The two happily marry soon afterward.
Powers/Abilities: Sharp talons.
Weakness: Emotional insecurity.
Scariness Factor: 3-Netvor, before he met the one for him, was pretty intimidating. Anyone caught stealing his roses would be killed in one way or another. Then again, he had a soft side, and his head felt a bit stiff, like an obvious mask.
Trivia: -There's a Russian version of this story involving a three-headed serpent. And you thought Netvor's form was weird.
-Netvor is the Slovakian word for "monster". So we're basically looking at "Monster the monster". Not the most flattering moniker.
