Kelpie

Description Edit

A Kelpie is a Sea fae creature that lures the unwary to a watery death. Kelpies appear near bodies of water as a fog colored horse with glowing red eyes and fangs, and smell like seaweed and blood. They will bite if approached. They are intelligent but can be overcome with confidence and strength of will. They have basic illusion abilities to protect themselves while lying in wait for victims. They may hunt in groups.

Kelpie Mythology Edit

Kelpie, or water kelpie, is the Scots name given to a water being inhabiting the lochs and pools of Scotland. It has usually been described as appearing as a horse, but is able to adopt human form. Some accounts state that the kelpie retains its hooves when appearing as a human, leading to its association with the Christian idea of Satan. Almost every sizeable body of water in Scotland has an associated kelpie story, but the most extensively reported is that of Loch Ness.
