3. basilisk

The name "basilisk" means little king and it is said to be the king of all serpents, partly because of the crown shaped crest that is on it's head.


The basilisk is a creature from European legends. It is said to have the power to kill with a single glare.


There are many different views on what the basilisk looks like, the most common one is a massive serpent, but it can also be portrayed as having eight legs or being part chicken. 


As well as anyone who looks at it drops down dead, it is also said that it leaves a trail of venom which oozes out from it's body. you can supposedly know a basilisk's territory by dead animals and plants surrounding it's layer killed by it's venom.


It is also said that the common weasel is the basilisk's only known weakness, the weasel is fatal to the basilisk.
