I'm a big fan of White Wolf games, and I loved their "Changeling" game - mythological creatures caught in the body of day-to-day individuals. There was the idea that ANYONE might be something magical. Well, not boring people, but certainly nearly anyone.

There were several fan write-ups for "dragons in the body of a human," it seemed an idea that the fanbase could resonate to--would it be fair to say that a dragon is about as close to a deity or a primal force that you can get, while still being wrapped in flesh? I don't think that's an unfair assessment. But I don't think this was about the power-gaming necessarily (though that was there).

Maybe they're unusually human for mythological creatures, and have a range of personalities (benign, malevolent), serve a range of purposes (guardian, messenger, victim of cursed transformation...) More flexible a myth than most, nearly as diverse as humans are.

At any rate, it seems just on this side of possible that a creature that's got one foot in the heavens and one firmly on earth COULD find its home in a human form. A believable sort of incarnation.

I'm free-rambling and at work, I love your closing line.
