As a rule, we are told Atavisms, makeup of the Horror, and to a lesser degree Lair Traits tend to reflect each other, the latter two being highly flexible in this regard thank to the malleable dream logic they are built upon. As a character creation thought experiment, let's assume an elder or Incarnate Beast ends up acquiring most or even almost all Atavisms with enough time and effort. Which kind of mythological monster archetype seems most appropriate in the first place for this kind of chimerical Horror ? Assuming the Beast starts with a more 'vanilla' kind of monster concept, how the Horror would end up looking like, after acquiring so many Atavisms ? How the structure and Traits of the Lair would be influenced ? I am driven to think draconic creatures or certain kinds of mythological hybrids (chimeras, griffins, manticores) might be appropriate to represent almost all Atavisms with a few tweaks.
