Sexy Beasts

By Natalie Haynes 22 November If the trailers are anything to go by, we already know where to find fantastic beasts: Eddie Redmayne has a suitcase full of them in New York. But where did they come from, the dragons, unicorns and hippogriffs of the Harry Potter universe?

The myths and folktales behind Harry Potter

Etymology[ edit ] The etymology of the Scots word kelpie is uncertain, but it may be derived from the Gaelic calpa or cailpeach, meaning “heifer” or “colt”. The first recorded use of the term to describe a mythological creature, then spelled kaelpie, appears in the manuscript of an ode by William Collins , composed some time before [1] and reproduced in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh of Folklorists who define kelpies as spirits living beside rivers, as distinguished from the Celtic lakeside-dwelling water horse each-uisge , include 19th-century minister of Tiree John Gregorson Campbell and 20th-century writers Lewis Spence and Katharine Briggs.

Others associate the term kelpie with a wide variety of mythical creatures. The mythological kelpie is usually described as a powerful and beautiful black horse inhabiting the deep pools of rivers and streams of Scotland, preying on any humans it encounters, [16] [18] One of the water-kelpie’s common identifying characteristics is that its hooves are reversed as compared to those of a normal horse, a trait also shared by the nykur of Iceland. Usually a little boy, he then pets the horse but his hand sticks to its neck.

Yet that old, hastily taken snapshot remains one of my favourites.

I did not know it, but that afternoon marked the start of a relationship that has proved one of the most enduring and rewarding of my life — and has taught me much about what it means to love. The relationship is all the more powerful because I have never been interested in having children of my own. Bluntly, I have never liked myself enough to even remotely consider reproducing myself. Perhaps there has been a touch of selfishness there, too: Yet with Megan I have done just that, and the result is that we are linked by something far more powerful than biology.

It takes one physical act to become a father, but so much more to offer a lifetime of proper friendship; a bond built on honesty, generosity and kindness that flows both ways.
