615 • Kelpie • Ignorance • Near the water


Still living in the currents you create Still sinking in the pool of your mistakes Oh, I'm coming up for air.
Behold, the greatest of plot twists. Maidie was hungry.

Ah yes, the folly of the Kelpie; the constant hunger. It was never ending, such a desperate, savage part of her that yearned to drag the nearest living and breathing thing into the dark, murky depths of the water was awfully annoying, especially when the lass wished to just lounge around. Water horses get tired too.

Travelling around with Emil was exhausting, not that she would ever admit that to his face. Maidie liked following him around just fine, her mentor...thing-person-water fae was very likely the only person she understood. Figuratively, that is, even if he could be a bit crotchety sometimes, especially when they were near humans.

It had been at least a day or two since she had eaten, the automatic relief that came from consuming her food was long since gone, having been replaced with a hollow, mildly burning feeling within her stomach.

Brooding within the clear blue waters, deep within the depths of a bay, surrounded by a cape on the continent of Australia, the lass hovered within the water in her form of the kelpie, likely scaring away all the local fish with her monstrous appearance. They annoyed her, anyways.

Having separated from Emil just a little while ago (he wasn't too far away, he never was), the Kelpie decided right then and there, that it was time to catch a snack.

Shifting into her form of the beautiful mare, the lass easily slipped through the water with serpent-like kicks of her pale grey legs. Surfacing, as her head broke through from the water, the Kelpie scanned the shore of the cape, hopping for some easy prey to come strolling along. It couldn't be too long now.

3624 • Serpentine Water Spirit • Vengeance • Lerna


It was a are instance in which the Hydra of Lerna traveled all the way to Australia. The continent was quite far from Europe and the water spirit was not overly fond of traveling too far from the West. Moreover, it actually took magical travel to reach the land mass. Traversing across the ocean was far too dangerous, particularly with the amount of time it would take to move from Europe to Australia. After all, it was quite easy for him to be mistaken as a sea monster of some sort or, in the case of the more logical, a dangerous animal. Traveling through the portals that were set up across the world in the Underworld were far easier.

Unfortunately, his work as an anti-guardian found him on the continent. While it was mostly dull, the serpent did find himself glad for the weather this time around. Unlike some of his last travels, Australia appeared to be quite warm around this time of year. It was much to his liking.

As he would be coming across his destination and, by extent, humans, the Hydra had taken to his human form. Overall, he appeared to be relatively harmless, looking to be relatively young in age. As an albino, his appearance stood out greatly, particularly since the serpent had taken to wearing clothing that seemed to be unfit for the weather. While he certainly found the sun pleasant, it could often bring harm to him in his human form.

Satisfied with his appearance, the serpent continued on with his travel. thanks!

615 • Kelpie • Ignorance • Near the water

For a bit, the kelpie watched with scanning eyes, head just barely peeking out of the water as her wide, blackened eyes waited patiently for any potential prey. The beach that spread out before her seemed to be rather desolate, this day, which was in turn good news and bad news to the water spirit.

Bad news, because less humans meant less prey to be able to try her hunting technique out on. It was also good news, because the humanfolk in numbers meant that they could shoo her away more easily. Probably with pointy sticks and sharp metal. It happened once...or maybe more than once, Maidie had lost count.
Quietly grumbling, the aching hunger made her stomach growl, which could be heard even through the water.

Much to her delight, a figure appeared in the distance. A scrawny thing, a boy with white hair that couldn't be older than what Kelpie considered adults of the walking food. An easy target. The kelpie could already start to feel that feeling of contentment that came after a meal!

Breaking through the water even more, the water horse smoothly began to make her way towards the boy, putting on the charm as she did so. Flicking her dark tail, the horse tossed her head once, with a soft little nicker to draw his attention.

This often worked like a charm on humans, drawn in by her alluring nature. Soon, Maidie placed her bets that he would be clambering onto her back, eager for her to take him on a little jaunt around the beach. Not a very long ride would that be. Hello there, she said in her animalistic tongue, let me take you for a ride. Soon, she was only a few meters from him. From there, the kelpie paused, waiting to see how he would react.

It was not often that the Hydra took notice of other creatures around him. After all, there was usually little reason to do so unless he was hungry. Mortal creatures were quite weak. If the decided to become a nuisance, it was a simple matter to weaken or kill them. However, as his tongue flickered out, catching a scent, the serpent paused for just a moment. It was not unusual to catch the scent of something magical. After all, every country had its own myths, and thus its own beings laying about. However, this was a fairly familiar one. Fae was a scent he was vaguely familiar with, having come across one or two here and there. However, the water spirit was more than positive that Australia of all places did not contain any. Europe was the home of fae, having them scattered about throughout the continent.

Hm, peculiar.

Briefly, his gaze went about the area, landing upon a mare that was only a few meters away from him. His nose wrinkled slightly. He possessed little love for horses. They hardly ever had enough meat on them and were not among the animals that he took to eating when he allowed his diet to move away from people.

Nevermind that she had a peculiar smell. Horses should not smell of water. She was probably something unusual and right now he had no time for bothering the unusual.

Tightening his scarf, he made to continue on. thanks!

Over the years, Maidie grew to take up a little hunting technique of her own. Actually, it wasn't so much her own, as it was a very common method among kelpie fae.
Draw in the human, no matter what it takes, and when you have them close enough either a. Use your charm to get them to either mount and/or touch any part of you, or b. Grab them and don't let go, usually jumping into the water helps then.

It was foolproof, and with her teacher having helped her over the years, the kelpie had it down to an art. Lure them in, with charm and the desire to ride such beast, and she had them in the bag. Simple minds to meld to her hunger, it kept her alive and fed, and Emil proud of her.

It would seem her prey of the day was not any ordinary dim human who happened upon her. No...no, he turned and walked away, with such a look of disdain!
The mare huffed, feeling her famished nature creep through her bones and swelter under the Australian heat. She missed Europe, with the overcast skies and dark water. This water was much too clear and warm, it did not rush about with such churning, mysterious depths that seemed to pull even the most skeptical of them all in.

Turning her slow gait into a trot, the kelpie was swiftly making her way over to him. Calling over with that musical tone of hers, neighs that sounded sweet against the ears.
Come back, come back. Maidie nickered, nearing him as he walked away, come for a ride!

3624 • Serpentine Water Spirit • Vengeance • Lerna


Magic was not too difficult to recognize. The Hydra of Lerna lived at one of the many entrances of the Underworld and he had encountered some of those who lived within the realm. Moreover, had one lived as long as he- or even been trained to kill as he had- then they would likely be as sensitive to magic as he was. As the mare attempted to use magic upon, the Hydra's expression became distracted for a brief moment before it snapped to attention once again.

"Idiot," he snapped. However, he was not looking at the mare, his gaze seeming to be far off, as if he were gazing at someone who was not there. Lip curling, he turned his gaze back upon the mare before shaking his head as she neared him. He had no time for this.

"Leave me alone," he snapped, the words spilling out in English. He doubted the...being, because, truthfully, even he could acknowledge that the mare was magical. "I am bussssy." A sibilant hiss entered his speech, sounding almost like a speech impediment.

Turning on heel, he began to walk away. "Ah, where isss the city? You idiotsss did not get me lossst did, you?" he grumbled, looking around through narrowed eyes. thanks!

This was...turning out to be trickier than expected. And that was something that annoyed the kelpie to no end.
Maidie liked an easier hunt, dumb food that easily fell prey to her whim, and clamored upon her back like an obediant little snack.
Although that could be argued that wasn't fun at all, the kelpie didn't do it for fun in the first place, only to satisfy the burning hunger and longing she felt.

A short growl escaped her, barely stifled as the man snapped yet didn't pay her any mind. Snorting with indigation before he then looked at her, the horse did not back down a single moment as he spoke for her to go away.

Like she would pay any mind to the orders of the walking food! A tamed beast she was not! The only person Maidie ever remotely took orders from was Emil, and that was because he was all knowing!

Apparently missing the hiss the man exuded, taking it as a simple slip up of the humanfolk speech, the horse continued to trot after him, musically whinnying every now. The moment he began speaking to himself did make her pause a little, however. Was he....mentally unhinged?

It took only a second for Maidie to decide that no matter if her food was insane or not, it would still taste good.

So with a stubborn huff, the kelpie lunged forward and grabbed the material of the back of his shirt with a snap of her jaw. Pulling back roughly, the kelpie waited for a reaction from the boy. She had this in the bag!

The Hydra had considered this matter finished. He was busy today and little time to waste with hunting or humouring nuisances in the form of infantile magical beings. It hardly helped that the others had clearly gotten him lost. He had to figure out where he was and continue on his way immediately.

Unfortunately, it seemed as though the Fates had another plan for him.

Having taken his eye off the kelpie, his attention solely focused on the voices of the others, he did not realize that the fae had managed to come close to him until she had snatched his shirt in his teeth and attempted to drag him backwards.

Anger immediately consumed him, eyes shifting into slits. He was nobody's prey, particularly some infant of a fae. He was a predator, having been trained to kill since he had been young. If this fae did not realize that then he would teach her that.

Immediately, he began to shift form. A another head sprouted from his neck, before it took upon serpentine form. Quickly, his human form began to lose shape, turning into a creature far larger and serpentine in form. By the time he had finished shifting, a monstrous serpentine form towered over Maidie, its heads beyond count.

Letting out a collective, angry hiss, the Hydra made to grasp the fae with his tale. thanks!

When the Kelpie was desperate for any kind of food, all sense of morals went out of the window. Not like she possessed such morals anyways, Emil had never really taught her that it was wrong to eat humans. It was just something she did, to follow her instinct by.

And so she prowled after this sickly looking boy, hardly looking as if he could put up any sort of fight if she decided to physically pursue him. If he was stubborn enough, the kelpie was sure to be quick to drag him into the waves and drown him there. Or if he put up a fight, sometimes mortals could be surprising, then she would have to maul him upon land.

Sometimes they didn't come racing to jump upon her back. The little ones were faster, the children were creatures that fell for her so very easily. It didn't make her happy, to eat the smaller ones, for some strange reason. Maidie was never curious enough to look deep into that part of her.

This boy was hardly little, despite what his limbs may say about him, he would still make a decent meal to get her through a day or two. Of course, she would probably complain to Emil about this later. How awfully skinny the mortals were getting!

The Kelpie believed she had this situation in the bag, yanking roughly upon the clothing of the boy, until her plan immediately dissolved into complete chaos. The human's form seemed to shift, growing in size into a serpentine monster with numerous heads. Fear raced through the water spirit, while the sudden snatching of the tale around her body caused her to shift in her panic.

Luckily, she had been in her form of the monstrous beast. The kelpie roared with rage against her meal betraying her, snapping at the tail wrapped around her with pointed teeth.

"RELEASE ME!" The roar of the kelpie echoed about the area, yet she was tiny in comparison to him. That didn't seem to falter her brewing anger, as the kelpie continued to lash out. Most likely to no avail.

So much for an easy meal.

At the moment, it appeared as though the fae was only angry. It was clear that she had mistaken him for something weak. It was understandable. His human form was supposed to hold that purpose. However, it was foolish for the fae to think that he was just a human. If she could not discern what was human and magical, then such fates like this were bound to happen.

He supposed he might be kind and let her live, if only because he could tell that she possessed the subtle scent of someone he had come across. He would prefer not to kill someone affiliate to another he knew. Besides, a child could not help its ignorance. If anything, this might help the fae learn what she needed to know.

A hissing laugh escaped one of the heads at fae's words. "Why?" hissed one head, taunting. He hardly felt as she snapped at his tale. He was not a weak creature and pain was something he was used to.

Amusedly, he made to throw her. It was a mere game, only to place some fear in the youngling.

"Because you sssssay ssssso?" hissed another, taunting. He moved forward, away from the group of innumerable heads and towards Maidie. His tongue flicked out. "Eating you would be a better idea."

A hissing chuckle came from the entire group, each of varying degrees of volume. thanks!

Maidie had been...mistaken. Fear and anger rushed through the Kelpie together, as she struggled against the beast. What she once thought was a puny boy, hardly a snack in her eyes but worthy of enough to warrant her hunt had been...this snake beast!
Maidie hadn't....hadn't really smelled anything off about his scent before hand, or maybe she had subconsciously chosen to ignore the red flags....

A barrage of Scots-Gaelic curse words escaped her as she made to snap at his tail once more, although it seemed to hardly cause the creature any pain. Panic racing through her, the kelpie roared as she was tossed like a rag doll from his grasp, taking a harsh tumble to the ground.

Shakily moving to stand, her coat matching the color of black ink as it slowly seemed to melt towards the ground, her red eyes glowing like hot coals with anger.

At his next words, and the hissing laughter from the countless heads, the kelpie stamped her front foot, concealing the panic she felt. A snarled escaped her, as she snapped in his direction warningly.

"Try it!" The kelpie roared, her ears flicking back and forth and her teeth bared. Despite the bold statement, the kelpie was slowly inching backwards, only find herself herself cornered against a rock wall.

Oh...dia.

The Hydra of Lerna felt a mixture of emotions. Parts of him thought that the children was amusing, while others thought she was rude and childish. The opinions were countless, just as his heads were. However, it was the opinion of the immortal head that mattered the most. He had stayed silent thus far, merely watching the fun of the other heads. Oh, how they did find it fun. After all, it was a rare moment when someone who was clearly lower than him dared to try to go against him.

The eldest decided that he would play with this. After all, this was only a child and she had made a child's mistake. He would not consume her. If there was any being in existence that he would never touch it was a female. However, she would not- could not- know that. It was to this advantage that he would play and teach her a lesson. After all, children often needed discipline. They would not grow otherwise.

Mingling among the others, it was impossible to tell that the immortal head was the tallest. If anything, he appeared to be but one among many. Like a constrictor, he made to slither about her. It was slow and lacking in hostile intent as the actions of the others had been.

"You would tempt a predator?" he hissed. His mouth curved into his form of a grin. "To kill you...it would be sssso sssimple," he breathed. Several laughed and it was impossible to tell who spoke. There too many of them, dozens of heads, perhaps a hundred! One did not have the time to count when they might be attacked. "Why I would not even need to bite," he cooed, his voice friendly and inviting. He curled once more and no longer was it gentle.

"Perhapsss a hug," another said softly. Yet another joined in, "Or even a word." The immortal head flicked his tongue, tasting the air to get a good sense of what the fae might be feeling. "You should not tempt me child, tempt a ssserpent." thanks!

The Kelpie refused to accept defeat, her stubbornness practically roaring at her to fight and prove her worth. She'd done this before with other kelpies, if she had accidentally stumbled upon their territory. Sometimes it was random wherever her and Emil ended up staying for a little bit, and hunting grounds were commonplaces that other water fae staked a claim too.

This wouldn't be her first scuffle, but she was sure this was one she would not win. Not with this monstrous serpent creature, he was surely much more stronger than her.

Yet still, her childlike pigheadedness forced a contempt filled roar from her. A horrendous sound, much like one a demon would make. And that was exactly what she was, a demon water spirit, in her own right. Maidie was not going to go without a fight, and quivering in the corner was getting her nowhere.

"I tempt a lowly snake. A weak little creature who talks big." The Kelpie whinnied aggressively, her feet shuffling aggitatedly as the serpent began to slither around her. She backed up a bit, only to be met with the other end of the serpent.
Red eyes flicked to each head, attempting to keep track of them as she neighed lowly. There was just too many! Fear plagued her, and she would definitely have taken angry villagers armed with rocks over this. This was bad....this was very bad... "Just try it! I am not so easily killed!"

Snapping at him with a lung of her body, she made to get him to back off once more. But deep, deep, deep down, Maidie knew this was not going to work in the slightest.

The Hydra of Lerna might have been insulted had the insult directed at him not come from a child and a child she was. After all, only a child considered a snake weak. Snakes were small, yes, but they were sly. They crept throughout and hid so that their prey was unaware. When the latter was soft and comfortable they attacked. He might have been a large snake, but he was no different. He knew how to hide himself well and attack weak creatures such as the fae before him.

She might be dead already if he were a crueler creature. He quite well that there were far more unforgiving beasts within this world that would attack a child for what she had done. In fact, he was related to a few.

He could taste the fear and desperation. The child knew she had lost despite her words. Her bravado was the façade of a stubborn child who refused to show weakness. Amusing, but not entirely wise. After all, sometimes weakness was required to escape. "Isss that ssso? Then...venom would not kill you? Mind can be quite unpleasssant."

It was not a lie. There were tales of how deadly the Hydra of Lorna was. However, the words were merely for fright. He would not kill her, merely... give her a reality check. Telling someone that you could not be killed easily was merely temptation, particularly if they were cruel. thanks!

This was bad, this was really bad. The same thought repeated within her mind, as the Kelpie face down the many-headed serpent. Just stay calm, and find a way to fight your way out of this situation. The little foal whinnied quietly, a strained little sound as the monstrous form she now took only seemed like a small frightened horse, facing down a mountain lion.

Maidie could feel her bravery ebbing away by the second, melting like the snow in late winter. She would not last against this monster of a water fae, the kelpie was very sure of it. He could snap her up into his jaws, and that would be the end of her!

She was sure Emil was far away by now, probably purifying a water source, or something like that. Her ears pressing against the back of her head, the kelpie neighed lowly, her hooves shifting about as she attempted to regain her confident footing. Snorting once, Maidie tossed her head a few times, red eyes glowing with...fear.

Venom. At that word did her bravado completely melt away. A fearful whinny escaped her, as the demon water spirit form of the kelpie faded away to her human form. Practically quivering like a little leaf caught in a tornado, the now human looking Maidie shook her head, hugging her arms to her.

"N-....no-..." She whinnied, tears streaking down her face. She saw what venom could do to a creature, little snakes brought down things much bigger than it with a simple bite of their fangs. It made their prey twitch and convulse, until they eventually faded away. Maidie would be dead in mere minutes from how much bigger her was to her.

Backing up, the Kelpie suddenly switched to English, her voice rising to a shriek of terror. Tears streamed down her face, terrified in the face of danger.
"EMIIIIIILLL!" Maidie cried out, her back bumping against the other part of the Hydra that surronded her, whipping around to face the wall that trapped her, she began to beat her fists upon it, to no avail. "EMIIIIIIIIIILLL!"
