South Carolina is one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States of America. The territories of its north grace the Appalachian Mountains and were once held by the Cherokee. Its lower regions were prominently inhabited by the Shantee and the middle regions by the Creek. From them come tales of the Thunderbird, Bush Man and Tsul 'Kula.

In modern times the majority of South Carolina's cryptids have been of an aquatic variety.
