melusine by AmaraLukas melusine by AmaraLukas
Melusine (or Melusina) is a figure of European legends and folklore, a feminine spirit of fresh waters in sacred springs and rivers.

She is usually depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish from the waist down (much like a mermaid). She is also sometimes illustrated with wings, two tails or both, and sometimes referred to as a nixie.

yes. what i do though is give a link to the page from where i got the info from.. be it wikipedia or whatever.. so if people want to know more, they can go and check it out for themselves. it saves you from having a long text in your dev.. because if it is too long people wont read it anyway.. but if you add a link it makes them curious and they will check it out.. ;)
