a fairy tale about the prince-toad the toad achieved the promise from princess,
that she would kiss him, if he got her favorite gold ball from the bog. When the
princess, having got the ball, escaped from the bog, the toad began to terrorize
the royal palace, making strong supernatural noise until he was invited to the
princess. The fairy tale ends by the marriage between the princess and the toad turned
into a prince. It
is interesting, that all the amphibians in myths make their transformations and
other magic far from sun light, more often at night.
all myths "are not indifferent" to the human virgin. The Dragon
Kashchey Immortal in modern representation, due to cinematography, got the image
of an unpleasant old man, while in myths of other countries he could occur in
the shape of a beautiful young man.
Different peoples have a lot of such tales. In Christian countries these
stories usually finished with the wedding, and what was after was held back
because of religious reasons. Therefore their end in the course of time was
forgotten. In the countries not covered by Christianity such stories had a
for example, the Indians of the North America
Hopi believed that there were two races:
children of the feather who had come from the sky and the reptile's children who
had come from under ground.
In South Africa the reptile like humanoids are known under the name “Chitauri”. Their children, born from the marriages with people, occupy there high posts of authority ( the video of the interview of David Icke with a Zulu Shaman Credo Mutwa who talks about reptile like gods of his tribe and their interaction with humans you can order on http://www.hiddenmysteries.com/cgi-bin/banmat3.cgi?entry2+x=URL ).
Indian holy book Mahabharata it is said, that Arjuna, the son of the king Pandu,
was stolen by the Naga princess, who took him in the parallel
empire in the river of Ganges. From their union the
half man son Iravan was born. The similar history is registered in
Narivansha, which is the appendix to Mahabharata. Yadu, the founder of a very
noble family Yadava, went to sea, whence he was taken by
the king of the snakes Dhumavarna to the snake
capital. The king Dhumavarna
married his five Naga - daughters off Yadu, and from them seven
different families of people began.
Japan people were even proud of the hybrid origin. William M. Mott in the book
« Caverns, Cauldrons and Concealed Creatures » retells an ancient Japanese story, which took place
in the village of Siota at the bottom of the mountain Soba, one of many
“sacred mountains” in Japan. A girl named Mimoto, the daughter of an
outstanding merchant and civil leader, was excited by a beautiful mysterious
young man, with whom she began to meet at night in the wood. Tempted by his
playing the flute and his courting, Mimoto absolutely lost her head. The parents
were very much concerned about these strange late meetings of their daughter.
They insisted her to put a strong red string on clothes of the young man in
order to find out, where he lives. Mimoto did as her parents had asked. And
after the dating, before dawn, when the young man had left, Mimoto, her parents
and several strong men followed the string through the wood until at last it led
them to the cave on the slope of the mountain Soba.
to the cave they heard the groans of the young men reaching from within. When
Mimoto called him, he answered, that he had “a needle in throat“(it was a
needle, with which Mimoto had applied the string to his clothes). Mimoto
persuaded him to come out, but at first he refused. Then he informed his
beloved, that he was dying soon because of the needle, and that she was pregnant
by his child, which he would not be able to take with him into “his world”
because of his close death. After much persuasion he at last went out and the
inhabitants of Siota could see his true form: the form of a dragon.
never saw her dragon-lover again but she did give birth to a hybrid child, whom
she called Akagire Taro, or Chapped Son. This was due to the fact that his skin
was cracked, creased, and scaled like that of a reptile.
