Creature and Next Stop on the Tour

Next stop on the Champion of Valor blog tour is over at Renee's. I hope you'll hop on over to read about what inspired me to write about the Kingdom of Arnhem series.

Where I copied the picture from

Today's creature is Sylph.

Sylphs were air elementals and were beautiful - looking like pretty, lively young women, slightly smaller than human women. In temperament, they are fickle and unreliable. They tend to live on mountaintops. One writer suggested that the Sylphs work hard to make the shape of each snowflake  and gather the clouds. Undines provide the moisture for this work. This same author suggested that the Greek Muses were Sylphs who gathered in the air around an artist to inspire about beauty and nature.

It would be interesting to write a story about the Sylphs.
