In the spirit of March Madness, here on the blog this month we will be holding the first official Familiar Madness Tournament. 16 of the all-time great familiars from literature, film, and television will face off in a single elimination tourney to decide who is the greatest of them all.
9. Argo - a palomino horse, which happens to be the cavalry horse of Xena, the warrior princess.
Argo has the magical ability to sense danger and issue commands to other horses. Ridden by Xena across the fantastical lands of Ancient Greece, Argo was a hooved Hercules, a God among horses.
Little else is known of this Amazonian familiar, which only grows her legend larger.
Tomorrow: We travel to King Arthur’s Court to meet the familiar of a powerful sorceress.
