Georgia is known for quite a few things, especially food-related goodies such as peaches, pecans, and even sweet onions like the Vidalia onion. But none of that really helps to gives a good idea of what Georgia is all about.
However, even if there was something about the state that screamed mythical monster or fantastical creature, it just feels like the perfect creature for the state might just be the imp. So what exactly is the imp?
According to The Book of Mythical Beasts & Magical Creatures, the imp is a small, bony demon. Unlike most demons, these little creatures are not evil. Instead, they are more naughty and mischievous. They are known for being pranksters and have no problem playing around with people.
And yes, the imp is known for always having a naughty smirk on their face. In some cases, they are often mistaken for gargoyles. But luckily for the imp, they are not made of stone and they have a tendency to wander.
So why does the imp seem to be a fit for Georgia? It’s the mischief of course. And it helps that they are not causing nearly as much trouble as their origins might suggest.
