The kelpie is a shape-shifting water spirit inhabiting the lochs and pools of Scotland described as a demon in the shape of a black horse. A kelpie is a mercurial creature that is both alluring and haunting. They roam the murky lochs, rising from the depths of the water to lure small children to their death, emerging from the moors and transforming into handsome strangers that seduce young maidens, and luring victims into the dark depths of rivers only to devour them. Beware the flowing eddies that nourish ferns and water lilies where the sweet water meets the salt, for it is there that they lay in waiting.
