water spirit (male)
Water spirit is a waterman, all green, ruler of the waters, with long hair and beard, all covered in moss and vegetation. They live in rivers and lakes with their wives, and they take care of their kingdom of fish, crabs, and scallops. If a fisherman or a swimmer disturb him, he will drown him and make him his servant keeping his soul in a clay pot. In old beliefs when a child or person drowns water spirits were always to blame. They are very strong, and almost no one can fight against them, but if a swimmer is strong as well, they will make him have cramps in their arms and legs, and there is no saving him.
