Nuckelavee The Devil of the Sea

Scotland

The Nuckelavee

Looking like the flayed skinless remains of a giant man and a horse Frankensteined together, the Nuckelavee is a unique fairie monster shared by Celtic and Nordic mythology.Unique in that it is lacking in a duality of nature like most fae, it is driven only by its murderous hatred of humankind. Striding from the sea spewing poisonous fumes, the only known way to deter the Nuckelavee is pure water: Either rain driving it back into the depths of the sea or else crossing a stream to escape.
