What about Empusa?

[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empusa
[/url]
She is a demigoddess/demon follower of Hecate who drinks blood and guards crossroads. She wears brazen slippers an has hair of flame.

I am less for aberrations and more for pretty things that can kill you :D .

In its "natural" form, the Impundulu, or lightning bird looks much like an oversized secretary bird (think a black and white eagle or hawk with crane-like legs), as it stands easily the height of a man.

When it preys on humans and other sentient creatures, it does so mainly to drink their blood. Being so much larger than the natural bird that it resembles, its primary tactic when hunting people is to shift into a handsome member of the opposite sex from a potential target, and lure the target into a sexual encounter away from other people. (In folklore, women are the common targets.) If the target puts up too much resistance, the Impundulu will revert back to its natural shape and take to the air as quickly as possible. From the skies, it is a dangerous opponent, as it can direct lightning from its claws and create deafening thunderclaps with its wings.

Impundulu lay their eggs by striking the ground with lightning. In an underground cavity beneath the site of the strike will be the eggs. Mages often summon and bind the birds to be servants, as they tend to be single-minded in attacking a summoner's enemies.

If slain, the Impundulu remains in whatever form it was in. The long twin tail feathers may, if properly enchanted, be used in tracing of thieves, and so are often of some value. Many magicians will also pay handsomely for eggs. Most Impundulu that are encountered by adventurers are the guardians of a magician's tower or some other location where there is access to open air.

I don't think I've seen the Mermecolion (Lion-headed and possibly front-pawed monster with an ant's hind quarters and legs) in most games, it is ravenous because its mix of herbivore and carnivore sides mean that it can't eat anything and quickly starves, but it would still be something I wouldn't want to face (particularly since it's likely to be starving).

Are kitsunes part of any game yet?

Thinking about it, they might be in Changeling as well.

I am submitting the Greek nerayda. They are your garden variety fairy nymphs, but they steal your voice for some reason.
