Water Nymphs are Typically Harmless, but Mystical
Water nymphs are typically harmless, and anyone coming closer than twenty feet to one will usually cause them to disappear. They will occasionally play pranks, but more often than not they will ignore interlopers. When a water nymph does decide to communicate with someone it usually does so in a dreamy, mystical manner and by utilizing obscure phrases and riddles that make them difficult to understand. Only rarely are they caught unawares or surprised. They will often sun bathe on rocks or in the open, allowing themselves to be seen and heard, but only from a distance. At the first signs of anyone approaching, they will slip into the water and disappear. Although completely unashamed about being naked, they abhor being touched and rarely leave the water by more than a few feet. Only occasionally do they become interested in someone else's affairs, and when that does happen it is usually to assist another fey in some fey-like manner or to defend their watery home. A water nymph's hair is extremely long, swirling down into the water around them. They love to sing and dance, and even by fey standards, they are extremely beautiful and mesmerizing. When their home is in danger, though, they can turn out to be a fearsome and dangerous enemy, even leaving their waters at times to bring the fight to their enemies.
