Okay, I think we can all agree here, volume 34 has seen the world of Berserk turned completely on its head. With the layers of existence merging together, strange occurrences are taking place across the globe and people have been thrown into disarray. Amongst the chaos and upheaval, we have witnessed the advent of a great multitude of spiritual beings, many of them being directly related to real-world mythological creatures.
The purpose of this thread will be to categorise these spiritual beings as they are progressively introduced in the world of Berserk. An image of each creature will be included, as well as a link to the corresponding Monstropedia article detailing its nature and appearance.
Note: This is restricted to creatures with real-world mythological counterparts. Those purely of Miura's creation are to be omitted.

As for the lake/swamp-dwelling creature, I've still no idea. Any help with this one would be much appreciated.
Anyway, I'm having second thoughts about the "imp" creature. The reason being that imps were often regarded as servants of The Devil (Christianity) and there is almost certainly no Devil in Berserk. I think a goblin would be more fitting for this context, but I'm not entirely sure. Any thoughts on this?
Edit: No thoughts on the "imp"?
By the way, I've decided to switch the links from Wikipedia to Monstropedia, a site dedicated to mythological creatures, which offers much more comprehensive documentation.
Edit 2: Okay, I went ahead and changed the "imp" to a goblin. I'm still unsure about it, to be honest, but I think it's less likely to be the former than the latter.

The only thing that comes to mind with the name imp are the brown creatures that shoot fireballs in Doom. So I guess goblin is ok.
