Nixies were an aquatic race of sprite.[1]


They dwelt in ponds, streams, rivers, and even lakes. They were generally playful and sometimes invited passerbys to come swim and play with them. They were sometimes seen as wicked creatures, as the pranks they played on mortals occasionally led to drowning.[citation needed]


A nixie appeared as a beautiful aquatic humanoid that was the size of an elven child. They had green skin, pointed ears, and long hair the color of seaweed. They also had webbed fingers and toes. They often wore little to no clothing, preferring to dress themselves only in pearls and shells.[citation needed]


Nixies made their homes in beautiful lakes and streams. They acted as guardians of such places, and attempt to drive away any who would despoil the natural beauty of their home.[citation needed] For example, they lived in and defended Lake Ashane in Rashemen.[4]
