Anyone ever heard of mythical collies with mechanical wings known as davos ? Stumbled on it in a list of hybrid mythical creatures in Wikipedia, and i doesn’t find secondary sources to comfirm is not  trolling.

The Article In Question, You Will Find The Davo In The Two Kind Of Animal Part Subsection Of The Non-Human Section . More Precise Quoting Would Be Futile, It Simply Read «  Collie With Mechanical wings »:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hybrid_creatures_in_folklore

Bonus Non-Steampunk Question: Can you also cross-reference  larka  ( Just below davo in the article) ? I find the idea than winged wolves have a genuine denonimation quite cool.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''
