Nereids are dangerous fey who beguile, seduce, entrap, and drown unwitting travelers, particularly sailors.[1]

Appearance

Nereids most often appear as beautiful humanoid-seeming women bathing in water with a shawl.[1]

Abilities

A nereid's kiss floods its victim's lungs with water, and can drown a victim within seconds. They also emit a beguiling aura that can compel creatures who are sexually attracted to their form to approach them. They are also venomous on contact and through spray.[1]

When underwater, a nereid can become transparent at will.[1]

Ecology

Part of a nereid's life force is embedded in a shawl, which it protects with its life; destroying a nereid's shawl slowly drains it of its life. While they can fashion a new shawl from water, the process can take up to four hours to complete.[1]
