The Sea Serpent or Sea Dragon is a mythical creature living in the deep ocean that has captivated the imagination of many for millennia.

Nereid Undine Sea Faerie
A Water Faerie (Undine, Water Nymph, Water Spirit) arises from the ocean on a wave wearing a crown of pearls and surrounded by shells. In Greek mythology she is called a Nereid. Water Faeries also inhabit waterfalls, lakes and streams. An Undine or Water Elemental can gain a soul if she marries a mortal and gives birth to his child. But if he is unfaithful, she returns to the sea. In Greek and Roman mythology a Nereid is the oceanic equivalent of a minor nature goddess.
Fand is a Faerie Queen and Sea Goddess married to Mannanon. She is called Pearl of Beauty. She also dwells in the Otherworld.
Fand called upon the great hero Cuchulainn to help her in a battle for control of the Irish Sea. They fall deeply in love. But of course, no good love story is without conflict; Cuchulainn is already married. After the battle is won, Fand returns to her husband Manannan. As a relationship between faerie and human could not continue without eventually destroying the world of faerie, Manannan erases their memories of each other with his magickal cloak.
