Character Contest 40: Southern Fried Heroes

I based these characters on Southern legends and folktales. If the links to the stories are dead, simply go to your browser’s search engine then type in the names.

The first is the Civil War legend of the Cash Town Inn. Short version: two Confederate soldiers find a murderhouse. In my version, one soldier becomes a victim and the other is so scared that his hair turns white.

The second legend is the Tailypo. A hungry hermit feasts on a strang creature’s tail. My cousin told me this story when I was little. We were camping on my grandpa’s farm. Though he had a gun and the cowdogs Max and Blue were with us, I could not sleep that night. For that matter, I had trouble sleeping until we returned home!
