Human like Fantasy Creatures
Elves are very beautiful youthful looking men and women with great magical powers. They live underground or in caves in the forest. These are almost always near a well or spring. Elfs live a very long time and some are considered to be immortal.
Christmas elves are probably the best known of all the North Pole elves or the most recognized of all the pixies fairies elves unless maybe the Keebler elves with their cookies are seen more often.
Dwarves are magical creatures that are associated with age and wisdom. Their pictures almost always are with beards. They have great knowledge, particularly of craftsmanship. Metallurgy is one of their great skills. They are said to have made some of the great artifacts of legend.
Leprechauns are Irish mythical creatures that seem to be found only in Irish folklore. They are described as male faerie that appear as tiny, wizen-faced old men that inhabit the isle of Ireland. There are many leprechaun legends and leprechaun stories that come from the early 19th century.

Mermaids are legendary creatures that live in the sea and have the upper body and torso of a beautiful woman and the lower body of a fish. Mermaids are thought to be enchantresses who are capable of wooing men to their deaths through the sound of their songs.The term "Sea Sirens" or "Sirens mythological creatures" is sometimes used instead of mermaids.
