Appearance

Anime Angel Pictures, Images and Photos

Physical Angels aren't necessarily solid matter, but they are material/energy beings with relatively defined/stable form and often at least somewhat human-like mind. Most users that aren't originally of angelic stock have this variation. Note that angels of this group aren't necessarily any weaker than those of the other groups, they are simply more "solid" in mind and body.

Spiritual Angels are completely spiritual beings, and thus far less bound to the laws of physics or single form. Many of them think in ways that are only tangentially relatable to humans, and their forms are both transient and often downright surreal.

Ethereal Angels are often both the most powerful and ancient angels, in some ways closer to sentient concepts than anything else. As such, relating to them in any way is likely impossible.

http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Di...

>Light Manipulation http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Li...

Weaknesses:

>Blood Seal - If a person places his or her hand upon this blood seal that is placed upon something then all angels in the immediate area will be banished away. An angel can activate this seal as well. If an angel activates the seal then the angel who activates the seal will not be banished along with the other angels in the area. This won't work on Archangels. The blood seal can also be place upon a person's body. If an angel activates the seal this way (carved into its vessel's chest), he or she will be banished along with the other angels.

>Exorcism Chant - There is an exorcism chant to expel angels from their human vessels and send them back to heaven. Archangels are immune to this. It seems that the chant is not well known as the only entity to use it was Alastair.

>Angelic Blade - An angel can be killed by stabbing him or her with an angelic blade. It seems that the angel must be stabbed in a vital area of the human body, such as the head, heart, neck, or stomach. When an angel is stabbed by an angelic blade, a burst of bright, white light is released and angel wings are burned on the surface underneath the body of the angel's human vessel.

>Archangel Blade - Archangels seem to have their own angelic blades that are more powerful than normal angelic blades. It seems that a Archangel blade is capable of killing both normal angels and Archangels.

>Weapons of Heaven - Harms angels and archangels; so far it has been shown that a weapon of Heaven can destroy an archangel's human vessel so that it can not be resurrected.

>Colt (Possibly) - The Colt was said to be the only thing that could possibly kill Lucifer. Although, a shot to the head failed to kill Lucifer, it's unknown if the Colt is capable of killing other archangels, although this is highly unlikey. It might be able to inflict serious damage to normal angels.

>Death's Scythe - Although it has not been seen in action, this item is said to have the power to reap any living being, whether it be human, demon, angel, and its rumored to even be able to reap Death himself.

>Holy Fire - Encased in flames created from Holy Oil, the angel is trapped. The trapped angel still can use their powers, possibly aiding them to escape. Touching the flame will kill the vessel and the angel. However, it cannot kill Michael, being only able to banish him.(Not the element Holy Fire)

>Lucifer's Cage - Strong enough to securely contain normal angels and Archangels.

>Enochian Sigils - When Enochian sigils are placed on human rib cages, they prevent any angel from detecting and finding them. They can also be used to prevent angels from entering a building by painting them on the building's walls.

>Hex Bags - Hex bags can used to prevent angels from detecting and finding someone (these cannot hide someone from Archangels in vessels).

>Higher Demons - The highest Demons, Alistair, Lilith and (presumably) Azazel are able to fight, overpower, harm, and even banish lower level Angels. They can't kill them, although it is implied Lilith possibly can as preventing her from breaking a seal resulted in the death of six angels and she survived, but it seems unlikely.

Given the vast variety of powers Angel have available and the variety of their duties, some of the possible and known positions/variations include:
■Angel of Death - Grim Reaper Physiology, Death Inducement
■Angel of Destiny/Fate - Destiny Manipulation, Future Manipulation
■Angel of Healing - Healing, Flawless Restoration
■Angel of Knowledge - Clairvoyance, Nigh-Omniscience
■Angel of Life - Life-Force Manipulation, Biological Manipulation
■Angel of Light- Light Manipulation, Light Generation, Light Mimicry
■Angel of Time - Time Manipulation
■Angel of War - War Manipulation, Enhanced Combat, Enhanced Leadership

Physical Demons aren't necessarily solid matter, but they are material/energy beings with relatively defined/stable form and often at least somewhat human-like mind. Most users that aren't originally of demonic stock have this variation. Note that demons of this group aren't necessarily any weaker than those of the other groups, they are simply more "solid" in mind and body.

Spiritual Demons are completely spiritual beings, and thus far less bound to the laws of physics or single form. Many of them think in ways that are only tangentially relatable to humans, and their forms are both transient and often downright surreal.

Ethereal Demons are often both the most powerful and ancient demons, in some ways closer to sentient concepts than anything else. As such, relating to them in any way is likely impossible.

Chose between Physical, Spiritual, and Ethereal

General Powers

>Demonic Possession - Like angels, demons require a human vessel or "meat suit" to travel on Earth. Unlike angels, they do not need a person's consent. Also, unlike angels, demons can possess corpses. It is easier to take control of people who are in states of heightened emotions or fear. This ability can be thwarted by Anti-possession tattoos. Also under some circumstances, the person being possessed can regain control if his or her will is strong enough.

>Electromagnetic Interference - Demons, like spirits, often disrupt nearby electronics with their presence.

>Flight - Only when in their natural forms.

>Immortality - Demons have an indefinitely long lifespan and an arrested aging process.

>Invulnerability - Injuries that would be fatal to humans, such as broken necks or gunshot wounds, have very little - if any - effect on demons. They can only be killed by special weapons or rituals.

>Super stamina - Demons never tire, and do not require food, water, oxygen, or sleep to sustain themselves.

>Super strength - Demons are capable of physically overpowering humans and most monsters.

>Supernatural Perception - Demons are able to see hidden supernatural activity and beings, such as Reapers, ghosts, and Hellhounds.

>Telekinesis - Demons can move objects and other beings with their minds.


Special Demon Powers

>Healing- In the context of a deal, crossroads demons can heal others of any wound, some other demons can do this.

>Reality Warping - Crossroads demons, and a few other Demons can grant humans a wish in exchange for their souls.

>Resurrection- One of the wishes demons can grant is the resurrection of a loved one.

>Hell Fire Breath - Manipulate the flames of Hell, it is black and purple http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/He...

Lower Level Demon Powers

>Death Aspect Inducement - induce death to others with different behaviors, beliefs, actions, and forms. http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/De...

>Shadow Manipulation - Can controle shadows

>Disembodied Voice

>Misguidance - Lead Humans astray

Mid Level Demon Powers

>Biokinesis - Some demons can manipulate the biology of other beings.

>Electrokinesis - Displayed by Azazel and Crowley. They could manipulate electronic equipment to their will.

>Invisibility - Some Demons can become invisible to humans.

>Magic - Some Demons can practice witchcraft, much like witches, like altering the range/space they occupy. Other demons are adept in Enochian magic which they use to protect themselves from Angels.

>Pyrokinesis - Some Demons can generate and manipulate fire.

>Soul Reading - Some Demons, particularly Crossroad Demons, can assess the condition of one's soul.

>Teleportation - Some Demons can travel from one place to another instantly, without occupying the space in between.

Upper Level Demon Powers

>Access to/from Hell - High ranking demons can easily teleport themselves back and forth between Earth and Hell, without the need for any complex summoning ritual or assistance.

>Angel Banishing Spell - a spell that could force Angels out of their vessels and return them to Heaven.

>Dream Walking - Some demons can enter and control the dreams of others.

>Enhanced Immunity - As a general rule, the more powerful the demon, the more resistant they are to common anti-demon methods such as salt and Holy Water. High ranking demons are immune to the Killing Touch of normal Angels.

>Memory Manipulation - Can erase memories

>Mind Control - Can summon and control monsters, ghosts, zombies and Lesser demons. The Seven Deadly Sins also possess mind control, but to a much lesser level, and could only control a person through the sin they represented.

>Weather Manipulation - Can cause lightning storms, and sudden gusts of wind with their mere presence.

>Demonic Element Manipulation- Black Lightning Manipulation, Black Earth Manipulation, Dark Flame Manipulation, Dark Water Manipulation, Dark Wind Manipulation
http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Da...

>Vice Inducement - Power to elicit the vices in a person's soul.
http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Vi...

Archdemon Powers

>Corrupting Touch - Can turn humans crazy, make them commit sins and turn them into demons.

>White Light - High ranking demons can use this to generate massive amounts of destructive energy that can obliterate large areas.

>Sin Empowerment - The power to be empowered by the sins of others.
http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Si...

>All but Demon Creation and Physiologies http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/De... ~NOT ALL HAVE THIS

Darkness Manipulation http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Da...

Weaknesses:

>Salt - Demons are unable to cross a line of salt and can do very little to damage the line at all. They can't even open doors lined with salt if opening it would break the line. Salt can also be used to torture demons by making them ingest it or by injecting them with salt-water. It can also be put into shotgun rounds to hurt and knock back demons. Azazel is immune to this weakness.

>Holy Water - Holy Water burns demons that come into contact with it, like acid. It proved ineffective against high-tier demons like Azazel or Lilith, and Ruby practically laughed when Sam was about use it against Alastair because it would barely slow him down.

>Devil's Trap - A Devil's Trap will hold a demon in place and prevent its escape. The Trap will also prevent low-level demons from using their powers. It also locks a demon inside its host unless it is exorcized. For some reason, a demon inside a trap is usually unable to do anything to damage the integrity of the circle, which would allow its escape.

>Iron - A demon can't touch iron without its skin burning or cross it if it is used to erect a barrier, much like salt. Samhain is immune to this weakness.

>Flesh Sigil - By carving a particular sigil into a demon's possessed flesh, it is possible to lock the demon within its host and disable its powers, the most important one being teleportation. However, demons with these sigils are not bound to a single place and can roam around freely if not restrained by some other means.

>Holy Fire - Though not fatal to demons as it is to Angels, Holy Fire can cause demons extreme pain.

>Angel's Touch - An Angel can kill a demon by touching them on the forehead with their hand. The host is also killed as a result. This power will not work for normal angels if the demon is too powerful or if the angel is cut off from Heaven. Higher level angels, however, can kill even the most powerful of demons this way.

>Exorcism - Will pull the demon out of its host and send it to Hell. Hosts may not survive.

>The Knife - The knife originally belonged to Ruby. It will kill a demon that is within a host if the wound dealt is a fatal one. Upper level demons are immune to the killing effects of the knife, the only definitive example being Alastair.

>The Colt - Much like The Knife, it will kill any demon that is shot while within a host if the shot is a fatal one. It is more powerful, however, as it affects upper level demons as well, even when the Knife does not.

>Death's Scythe - Death's Scythe can presumably kill Demons, as it is capable of reaping just about anything.

>Ingestion of Salt - Under some circumstances, the ingestion of large quantities of salt can force a demon to vacate its host.

>Unknown Virgin Sacrifice Spell - Claimed a spell that would destroy any demon within a one mile radius. Not much is known about the ritual except that it requires cutting the heart out of a virgin.

>Special Children - They can developed special abilities almost especially tailored to hurt or kill demons. Special children can to do by training, and ingesting enough demon blood.

>Hellhounds - Hellhounds can overpower and kill demons as easily as they can kill humans.

>Hallowed Ground - Some demons (lower-level ones), are unable to enter hallowed ground. It is unclear if this includes cemeteries as well as churches.

>Hexbags - Hexbags can be used to hide people from demons as well as angels.

>Physical damage - Though demons themselves cannot be harmed by conventional means, severe damage to their meat suits (such as severed limbs), will slow them down. If a vessel accumulates too much damage (which they commonly do), the demon will be forced to abandon its meat suit and search for a new one.

>"Christo" - saying Jesus's name—Christo (pronounced "KREE-stow")—would cause a demon to flinch, turning its eyes black and revealing its nature. Not always works, though

They are spirits of fire, they possess strong magic and are related to Angels





Ghul
The ghul (ghoul) are shape-shifting cannibalistic and blood-drinking creatures that feed on the flesh of human beings, especially travelers, children or corpses stolen out of graves. The oldest references to ghul in Arabian lore are found in The Book of 1001 Nights. There are several types of ghul. The most feared is a female type (ghula) which has the ability to appear as a normal, mortal woman. According to lore, such a creature marries an unsuspecting man, who becomes her prey.

The ghul are nocturnal creatures who inhabit graveyards, ruins and other lonely places. Sometimes they are described as dead humans who sleep for long periods in secret graves, then awake, rise and feast on both the living and the dead. Ghul also personify the unknown terrors held by the desert.

Nasnas
The nasnas is another weak form of djinn, hybrids of human-like and animal-like forms, and may account for some of our encounters with mysterious creatures. It is described in The Book of 1001 Nights as a half- human being, that is, it has half a head, half a body, one arm, one leg. It hops about on its single leg. The nasnas was said to be the offspring of a shiqq (see below) and a human being.

Palis
The palis is a vampiric foot-licker that lives in the desert. It has low intelligence and can be easily outwitted, according to lore. It attacks sleeping people and drains their blood by licking the soles of their feet. It can be fooled by two people sleeping end to end with their soles of their feet together or under each other’s head.

Shaitan
The shaitan (shaytan) is a rebellious, malevolent djinni associated with demonic forces.

Shiqq
The shiqq is a lower form of djinn, a half creature,or literally only half-formed and thus monstrous in appearance.

Outcasts or Wanderers

Fallen Angels, they share their story with the Faeries. They fell from grace because they chose neither Michael or Lucifer, but complained to God. For this he Cursed them. They are pale and skinny, their hair and eyes are white. Their wings are bone, featherless, and can not fly, but hover a few feet above the ground. They are known to attack any Angelic or Demonic being that gets within a few feet and guard some of the Relics.

Nephilim

Half angel, half human, their giants with a taste for human flesh. The Nethelim are a related race of half-angels.

The Nethelim were Giants of fire and air. They were born from the union of mortal women and of Angels thrown out of Heaven by God. They looked like giant men covered in thick, white hair, with red eyes. Because of their semi-divine status the Nethelim posessed great knowledge and were excellent magicians.

Combination of mortal and physical with immortal and immaterial is highly unpredictable, and someone with heritage from both sides can lean on either side of their ancestry. Thus nephilim can be divided into three broad groups:

Near-Mortal Nephilim favor their mortal parents or are more distant descendants. They are mostly similar to their mortal kind in both mind and body, but with some additional abilities and instincts. Outwardly there are few or no indication that the individual is anything but normal.

Balanced Nephilim are balanced between their heritages, if sometimes rather precariously, and have both free will and good amount of power. There are likely number of definite traits and instincts that draw them toward their inhuman side. Physically they tend to have at least few indications about their non-mortal parentage, but the amount varies greatly between individuals.

Cambion

Half demon, half human, they possess silver eyes and one supernatural power. A cambion is most often depicted as the offspring of an incubus and a human woman. At birth, the infant has no pulse and no breath. This continues until the child is about seven years old, where it becomes increasingly difficult to differentiate one from a human. A cambion is usually devilishly cunning and angelically beautiful, able to persuade even the most strong-hearted individual to do his or her bidding. They have a silver eye color.

Combination of mortal and physical with immortal and immaterial is highly unpredictable, and someone with heritage from both sides can lean on either side of their ancestry. Thus cambion can be divided into three broad groups:

Near-Mortal favor their mortal parents or are more distant descendants. They are mostly similar to their mortal kind in both mind and body, but with some additional abilities and instincts. Outwardly there are few or no indication that the individual is anything but normal.

Balanced are balanced between their heritages, if sometimes rather precariously, and have both free will and good amount of power. There are likely number of definite traits and instincts that draw them toward their inhuman side. Physically they tend to have at least few indications about their non-mortal parentage, but the amount varies greatly between individuals.

Near-Demonic favor their immortal parentage or have only minor amount of mortal blood. Physically and mentally they are close to their immortal parentage, although able to resist their instinctual traits batter than their parent.

Infernal

Succubi
Succubi are beautiful and desirable women. Though Succubi do sometimes have bat-like wings or demonic features such as horns, a tail, hooves and fangs.

In medieval European lore, Succubi appeared to men in the night and seduced them into sexual encounters. Celibate monks seemed to be especially prone to such attacks, often blaming Succubi for their lustful thoughts or sexual dreams. Succubi could suck the life force of men, leaving them exhausted or even killing them.

a succubus collects semen from the men she seduces. The incubi or male demons then use the semen to impregnate human females, thus explaining how demons could apparently sire children despite the traditional belief that they were incapable of reproduction. Hell's foot soilders, as humans need food and water to live, Succubi need sperm to live. They drain your sexual energy/life force through kissing and sexual intercourse. When doing o, their eyes glow blue. They can be straight or bi, but not full on Girl/Girl They possess great beauty and a seductive touch.

Incubi

An incubus is a demon that enters the dreams of woman and engages in sexual activity in order to have a child. It is classified as a male counterpart of the female succubus, who engaged in sexual activity with men. Like the succubi, incubi wore out their partners with constant sex and would even kill them.
The Incubus is just as buetiful and desired as his female counter part the succubus.
The incubus and succubus are actually the same. They swap genders at specific points. For example, they would become succubi whenever they required semen, their life source. They would then become incubi and use that semen to impregnigate women. Many believe that incubi are bisexual but that would strictly contradict their purpose of impregnation. But some people believe that when the Incubi slept with another male he would absorbe his seed and use it as his own. Sometimes, these demons are able conceive children. When they do, they will obtain supernatural abilities and can become extremely persuasive. These human/incubi or succubi hybrid is called a Cambion. Unless the Incubus slept with a succubuss then the succubi would give birth to a new incubi or succubi.
They are bisexual, have a stronger seductive power than succubi, it's not their touch but their aura, the air around them. They are kinky and talk sexual alot. They can be submissive or dominate boyfriends, but no matter what role they play, they bring out the best in their GF/BF.

Cruxim
You could say that it is a special class of Vampire. But it is not really a Vampire; it is not a corpse resurrected from the dead. It is a Humanoid, usually has silver hair with wings like that of an angel but they are black instead of white, have red eyes, and drink the BLOOD OF VAMPIRES! They also feed off of witches

Estries

Estries are female vampires of Hebrew mythology that were believed to prey on Hebrew citizens, particularly men. Estries were believed to be able to walk into holy places, and sometimes to seek prayer for healing from unsuspecting religious people seeking to do good. Though methods described for killing estries were conventional, it was believed that burial alone would not prevent an estrie from returning: it must have its mouth packed with earth, or be decapitated or burned.

Alp

Nightdemons, mostly male. Entry is made through the victim's mouth, with the Alp in the form of a mist. It drinks blood, drawn from the nipples and sexual. It enjoys the taste of breastmilk and can shapeshift.

Eretica

Undead vampiric creatures. They were women who sould theirs souls in life and meet with other Ereticy for a sabbat-like ritual and sleep in graves. They kill their prey slowly, draining their life force.

Mullo

A mullo is created when a person dies suddenly of some unnatural cause or the person did not have proper funeral rites. A mullo is described as having white clothes, hair that reaches to their feet, and one physical oddity. A mullo's existence is in seeking out people it did not like in life and harassing that person.

Mullo are believed to return and do malicious things and/or attack by strangling and suck the blood of a person (usually a relative who had caused their death, or hadn't properly observed the burial ceremonies, or who kept the deceased's possessions instead of destroying them as was proper).

To get rid of a vampire people would hire a Dhampir (the son of a vampire and his widow) or a Moroi (a living vampire) to detect the vampire. To ward off vampires, Gypsies drove steel or iron needles into a corpse's heart and placed bits of steel in the mouth, over the eyes, ears and between the fingers at the time of burial. They also placed hawthorn in the corpse's sock or drove a hawthorn stake through the legs. Further measures included driving stakes into the grave, pouring boiling water over it, decapitating the corpse, or burning it.

Mori

A moroi is a type of vampire or ghost in Romanian folklore. A female moroi is called a moroaică (pl. moroaice). In some versions, a moroi is a phantom of a dead person which leaves the grave to draw energy from the living. They are also sometimes referred to in modern myth as the live-born offspring of two strigoi. It may signify an infant who died before being baptized.

Strigoi

the troubled souls of the dead rising from the grave. Some strigoi can be living people with certain magical properties. Some of the properties of the strigoi include: the ability to transform into an animal, invisibility, and the propensity to drain the vitality of victims via blood loss. Strigoi are also known as immortal vampires.

Different Types of Strigoi

The strigoaică

A strigoaică (singular feminine form) is a witch.

The strigoi viu

The strigoi viu (living strigoi) is a kind of sorcerer. The living strigoi steals the wealth of farmers, that is to say, wheat and milk. But it can also stop the rain, dropping hail and give death to men and cattle.

The strigoi mort

The strigoi mort (dead strigoi) is much more dangerous. Its nature is ambiguous, both human and demonic. He emerges from his grave, returns to his family and behaves as in his lifetime, while weakening his relatives until they die in their turn.

WAYS TO BECOME ONE:
Be the seventh child of the same sex in a family

Be redhead

Lead a life of sin

Die without being married

For perjury

By suicide

Have been cursed by a witch.

Pricolici
the pricolici always has wolf-like characteristics.

Pricolici, like strigoi, are undead souls that have risen from the grave to harm living people. While a strigoi possesses anthropomorphic qualities similar to the ones it had before death, a pricolici always resembles a wolf or large dog. Malicious, violent men are often said to become pricolici after death, in order to continue harming other humans.

Pricolici are werewolves in life and after they die, return as vampires.

Dhampire
Dhampyrs are the offspring of a vampire and a human, the gender not withstanding. Dhampyrs have the strength and stamina from humans and the heightened senses and better reflexes from vampires. Because of the fact that dhampyrs take the best factors from both sides, they make ideal bodyguards. They are the vampire equivalent of Nephilim. Dhampyrs are not restricted by sunlight but can be injured by things other than wood.

The Dhamphyr are indeed half-vampires. They share some weakness and often display the same traits a vampire does. Rare is it that a Dhampyr is unaware of what they are. They are sometimes born either from an experience before birth that give signs of vampirism such as being born after the plecenta has exited the mother or perhaps through a gene that is hidden in the family and is activated by the consumption of blood or through adolesence. Depending on the level of vampire, the father or ancestor was will determine the level of strength and traits that are revealed. Some traits that will show will be their strength, stamina, and red tint in the eyes when enraged. They often are bullied in life and are shown much unkindness due to the primal feelings that humans exhibit when in danger. Dhampyrs later become either good humans or good vampires. When engaged in sexual intercourse, they are often bitting onto their lover always more than likely to break the skin. Dhampyrs often drink their own blood or other's if allowed to. They drink blood to sustain themselves otherwise they would be slothish and more human-like.

Seveocha

A seveocha is a girl dhamphyr. They are very rare and tend to be stronger and more powerful than the boy dhamphyr.

Ziz
The Ziz is from Hebraw mythology. It is said that it was an enormous Griffin -like bird creature. It was as big as Leviathan, its feet planted on earth and it's head reached the sky. It had a wingspan so wide it could block out the sun.
Some say that the Ziz was a good hearted creature, but it was created to protect the birds, if not, all the smaller birds would die, because they would be an easy prey for predators. Bird hunters and animals who hunt birds would be terrefied to enter its terretory, because it was also immortal.

Behemoth

The Behemoth is a mythical creature mentioned in the Bible.
Job 40:15-24 describes both Leviathan and Behemoth, showing Job how pointless is questioning the motives of God. The two creatures were usually depicted as immensely powerful beings, yet were reduced to the pets of God, having rings in their noses and Behemoth leashed.
In later Jewish apocrypha and pseudepigrapha Behemoth is the primal creature of earth, Leviathan is that of water, while Ziz is the primal creature of the sky. A rabbinic legend states that a great battle will take place between Behemoth and Leviathan, where the Creator will slay both creatures, and create canopies for the righteous under which they will feast on the meat of the beasts.
Some Young Earth creationists, who believe every animal (including dinosaurs) were made on day 6, thus Behemoth could have been a sauropod, a kind of dinosaur with long neck, tail and huge body, because of the statement about its tail, that it moves like a cedar can only mean that kind of creature.
Other identifications were pointed to still existing creatures, such as the hippopotamus or the elephant, but some even considered a crocodile or water buffalo, although the statement about the cedar tree is a great problem for these theories. A biologist Michael Bright suggested that the reference tries to point out the brush-like leaves of the tree, which resembles the tail of modern elephants or hippopotamuses.
A disturbing option still stands, in which the Hebrew word 'move' may mean 'extend' in this case, so it may refer to Behemoth's penis.
Despite all of the above, the Behemoth is most likely an imaginary creature, created by the author of Job in order to show the power of God.

Behemoth has several times been reused in popular culture as a large mammal or reptile, armed with huge teeth and claws.
The beast's name has a metaphorycal mean as well, referring to its size and power.

Leviathan(Serpent)

Judaism
Leviathan, Behemoth and Ziz
According to legend, Leviathan origionally had a mate, Taninim (Hebrew for "sea monster, crocodile or large snake"). God created a male and female Leviathan, then killed the female, for if the Leviathans were to procreate the world could not stand before them.

The Leviathan was a monstrous fish created on the fifth day of Creation. The Leviathan will be slain and its flesh served as a feast to the righteous in [the] Time to Come, and its skin used to cover the tent where the banquet will take place."
There is another religious hymn recited on the festival of Shavuot (celebrating the giving of the Torah), known as Akdamut, wherein it says: "...The sport with the Leviathan and the ox (Behemoth)...When they will interlock with one another and engage in combat, with his horns the Behemoth will gore with strength, the fish [Leviathan] will leap to meet him with his fins, with power. Their Creator will approach them with his mighty sword [and slay them both]." Thus, "from the beautiful skin of the Leviathan, God will construct canopies to shelter the righteous, who will eat the meat of the Behemoth [ox] and the Leviathan amid great joy and merriment, at a huge banquet that will be given for them." Some rabbinical commentators say these accounts are allegorical (Artscroll siddur, p. 719), or symbolic of the end of conflict.

In a legend recorded in the Midrash called Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer it is stated that the whale which swallowed Jonah narrowly avoided being eaten by the Leviathan, which generally eats one whale each day. In a hymn by Kalir, the Leviathan is a serpent that surrounds the earth and has its tail in its mouth, like the Greek Ouroboros and the Nordic Midgard Serpent.
Legend has it that in the banquet after the end of conflict, the carcass of the leviathan will be served as a meal, along with the behemoth and the ziz.

Leviathan may also be interpreted as the sea itself, with its counterparts behemoth being the land and ziz being the air and space. Some scholars have interpreted Leviathan, and other references to the sea in the Old Testament, as highly metaphorical references to seafaring marauders who once terrorized the Kingdom of Israel. Others liken the mention to Tiamat and other similar monsters who represented the sea as a foe to the gods in myths of nearby cultures.
The Biblical references to Leviathan appear to have evolved from the Canaanite Baal cycle involving a confrontation between Hadad (Baal) and a seven headed sea monster named Lotan. Lotan is the Ugaritic orthograph for Hebrew Leviathan. Hadad defeats him. Biblical references also resemble the Babylonian creation epic Enûma Elish in which the storm god Marduk slays his mother, the sea monster and goddess of chaos and creation Tiamat and creates the earth and sky from the two halves of her corpse.


Leviathan in Rabbinic Literature

Creation of the Leviathan according to a midrash, the leviathan was created on the fifth day (Yalkut, Gen. 12). Originally God produced a male and a female leviathan, but lest in multiplying the species should destroy the world, He slew the female, reserving her flesh for the banquet that will be given to the righteous on the advent of the Messiah (B. B. 74a).


The enormous size of the leviathan is thus illustrated by R. Johanan, from whom proceeded nearly all the haggadot concerning this monster: "Once we went in a ship and saw a fish which put his head out of the water. He had horns upon which was written: 'I am one of the meanest creatures that inhabit the sea. I am three hundred miles in length, and enter this day into the jaws of the leviathan'" (B. B. l.c.). When the leviathan is hungry, reports R. Dimi in the name of R. Johanan, he sends forth from his mouth a heat so great as to make all the waters of the deep boil, and if he would put his head into paradise no living creature could endure the odor of him (ib.). His abode is the Mediterranean Sea; and the waters of the Jordan fall into his mouth (Bek. 55b; B. B. l.c.).

The body of the leviathan, especially his eyes, possesses great illuminating power. This was the opinion of R. Eliezer, who, in the course of a voyage in company with R. Joshua, explained to the latter, when frightened by the sudden appearance of a brilliant light, that it probably proceeded from the eyes of the leviathan. He referred his companion to the words of Job xli. 18: "By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning" (B. B. l.c.). However, in spite of his supernatural strength, the leviathan is afraid of a small worm called "kilbit", which clings to the gills of large fishes and kills them (Shab. 77b).
In a legend recorded in a Midrash called
Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer it is stated that the whale which swallowed Jonah narrowly avoided being eaten by the Leviathan, which generally eats one whale each day. Legend has it that in the banquet after the end of conflict, the carcass of the leviathan will be served as a meal, along with the behemoth and the ziz.

Golem

In Jewish folklore, a golem (גולם, sometimes, as in Yiddish, pronounced goilem) is an animated being created entirely from inanimate matter. In modern Hebrew the word golem literally means "cocoon", but can also mean "fool", "silly", or even "stupid". The name appears to derive from the word gelem (גלם), which means "raw material".

The creatures are said to be controlled by an eye that is placed in the forehead. The controller uses a globe, mirror, or bowl of water to control it. A scroll with runes on it is placed in the creature to bring it to life. After a Golem is destroyed, the scroll being removed, it will return to its master. As the Golem proceeds to its master, with little power left to sustain it, it starts to fall apart. If the distance is short between the master and Golem at the time of the scrolls removal this can sometimes be a problem for the master if they were using the Golem for felony against their people.

Golems are made out of random meterial, but most commonly earth. They are brought to life by magic. They often can not speak and have no soul.
