@Algot I imagine that would vary pretty widely depending on the culture, though, wouldn't it?
My myth references lean heavily on the ones from Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" which I read several times in my youth. The Grimm brothers influenced me too.
I have not expanded much beyond that.
There probably are cultures in which "cautionary" isn't the core element of the story.
