In other games they are normally found in packs, becuase they tend to be not very strong alone. I belive that the other two are made up, but I could be wrong. Maybe they can be found elsewhere. ~Talia

Owlbears are common in fantasy literature. I suppose they're bears with owl faces. They're reported to be very brutal and violent.
"Night lord" and "skeletal lord" sound like your generic hordes of evil warriors, so several authors might have come up with them independently.
Cosmops are definitely Sam's invention AFAIK.
What about those cannibal cakes, then?
