GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

HYDRIADS

Greek Water Spirits

Also known as HYDRIADES

Water Nymphs

Like fish NYMPHS can be divided into salt and freshwater types, although some of them actually float about in the clouds, which is a habitat most fish tend to avoid.

The HYDRIADS specialize in elemental waters and tend to be the daughters of important Sea Gods. For example there are the fifty NEREIDS (daughters of NEREUS), and the OCEANIDS (daughters of OCEANUS).

Most of the rest are NAIADS, who tend to stick to their own little streams in hopes of a quiet life.
