Folklore: n. the traditional beliefs, legends, customs, etc., of a people; lore of a people.

Mythology: n. a body of myths, as that of a particular people or that relating to a particular person [1] http://dictionary.reference.com...

Hmmm....Folklore and mythology appear to be great sources of mystification, interest, and musing.
I wonder what's your favorite figure from folklore?

I prefer the Green Man in relief, though king Oberon and his train of fairies from Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer's Night Dream' might suffice. Dionysus might work as well, along with a host of other figures in mythology: Wotan, Hecate, and so on...

Jesus.

Because not only was he a straight PIMP who hung out with tax collectors, hookers, and drunkards, but he was also a pretty chill dude over all. Sermon on the mount was pretty cool, and he healed the sick and stuff. I'd chill with Jesus.

Isis. I have always loved Egyptian mythology and she has been a favourite of mine.
What about Horus, Osiris, or the deities and spirits of Egyptian mythology?

Sigurd (http://en.wikipedia.org...), mainly because the Volsunga Saga is my absolute favorite myth.
