Nuckelavee

   From Scottish mythology, this horrible sea fairy is a gigantic horse, with a huge mouth, evil eyes and legs that are part flipper. Issuing from its back is an ugly torso with long arms that almost reach the ground, a skinny neck and a huge head. It has no skin, so black blood flowing through yellow veins, white sinew and strong red muscles are easily seen. He hates fresh running water, so crossing a stream will stop it if one happens to chase you.
