Nymph

The Nymph dwells in muddy lakes, slow rivers, and in the sprawling depths of the marshlands.
It is gelatinous and semi-transparent in nature, with a thin bone structure that somehow manages to hide truly horrifying strength.

This water nymph will lie motionless in wait, before surging up from the black waters to grip its prey in many long-fingered hands,
and drag it struggling beneath the surface.

The Nymph enjoys ingesting prey whole during the last moments of suffocation, when its meal is still alive and twitching.
Best to avoid the water at all times, just to be safe...

It would be great to have one as a pet, especially if you have a swamp in your forest.

The description reads like an entry in a Witcher's Bestiary.

Makes me wonder how this 'nymph' got the (highly innacurate) legend of being some kind of beauty.

I'm not sure. It's true that the classic Nymph is depicted as something beautiful. But I wanted to create a very different water spirit that fit the game I was working on a lot more.

I apologize, somehow i didn't notice the fact it was from an original game.
