What are the type of Supernatural Creatures?

I am writing a book, and I need sub-genres for houses like:

Avian - All Bird/Winged Creatures

Aquatic - All Water Based Creatures

One for Mammals, one for Undead like Vampires, Zombies, and Ghost. Special genres for special creatures would be incredibly helpful

And if it's not too much trouble, some type of European (Scottish or Irish Preferred) creatures for a Love Interest (Male)

    You're literally ON THE INTERNET, why can't you do the google searches yourself?

    Race is a social construct, even when discussing fictional races or genetic mutations.

    So your classification system would be intrinsic to your work of fiction or to the mythos which you've chosen to use as source material.  For example, if you've chosen to draw on the Abrahamic religions, you'd likely classify things into diabolical and angelic.

    Consult an encyclopedia of folklore. There are some beautifully illustrated ones on amazon.
