The reason they have so many things in common is that all three were invented by the human imagination to serve roughly the same purpose. You may also
add fairies, bodhisattvas
, Chinese household gods and other intermediaries between the human and divine worlds to that list.
Essentially, they are all the same thing. The phenomen was explained quite well by Carl Jung half a century ago.
Do I have to add that none of these beings actually exist?
