Cryptids are supernatural or legendary creatures of varying intelligence. Unlike Wild monsters, Cryptids are either magical in nature, possess extraordinary abilities, or one of a kind. Some cryptids operate in societies; others exist only in lairs or secret or forbidden dwellings. Creatures like dragons, the Sphinx, cockatrices, krakens, and Lamia are all types of cryptids.
