Jerome’s Journal: Kelpie — Page 13

Most of the mythology around the Kelpie says they’re spirits, and some even say they’re Mermaiden Shapeshifters. I believe it is possible that if a specific breed of Seahorse has enough Cryptid Energy channeling through it, it can turn into a Kelpie.

The Kelpie I saw back in the Murky Rivers of the Eastern Swampland had a school of miniature Seahorses following it, which lead me to believe there is some connection. The Eastern Swampland is a large bay area that opens into the sea.

Kelpies are dark green, and their manes and body have the appearance of seaweed. Their bodies are about the size of a horse, and have a similar appearance, but the back side of the Kelpie has a large tail, similar to that of a giant fish.

The Mermaids I met talked about the Kelpies like they were wild animals, and to stay clear from them. They’re fast and aggressive, not unlike the Unicorn.

A lot of rumors about the Kelpie talk about it as if it’s a spirit or a ghost, but it seems like it has the ability to camouflage in the water moreso than the former being true, and that makes it seem like it appears out of nowhere. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that it can fully turn invisible with their Cryptid Energy.

Notable Facts

  • Mermaids use the fear of the Kelpie to keep their children from swimming too far away from home.
