Nymph

Vincent van hoof nymph final

The Nymph dwells in muddy lakes, slow rivers, and in the sprawling depths of the marshlands.

It is gelatinous and semi-transparent in nature, with a thin bone structure that somehow manages to hide truly horrifying strength. This water nymph will lie motionless in wait, before surging up from the black waters to grip its prey in many long-fingered hands, a
nd drag it struggling beneath the surface.

The Nymph enjoys ingesting prey whole during the last moments of suffocation, when its meal is still alive and twitching.
Best to avoid the water at all times, just to be safe...
