Description

Originally from Icelandic, Irish and Scandinavian mythology- Selkies are seal-like creatures that transform into attractive humans by shedding their skins, in order to seduce humans. They can transform back by putting their sealskins on.

There are a variety of myths relating to other powers involving selkie/human transformations. Although Selkies normally stay on land with their romantic interests, there are a few times that selkies (returning to the sea) transform their human lovers so that they can be together.

<span style="font-size: 8px">Note: Just as frequently, it turns out that they do not have this power. The lover would drown if they accept, leading to tragedy or revealing that the Selkie is evil.</span>
