I used to partake in an online gig called the Monthly Gargoyle Character where fans draw gragoyles and winged cats and upload them for judging. Be damned if you called it a contest, though. Competition in a judged event was frowned upon. Finally the name of the event surrendered to Monthly Gargoyles Contest. That was my outlet for cheap pops for a while, and that's the real reason why Pandora here has wings and horns, but I also like the curse theory, too— better, in fact.
