HYDRIADS
Also known as HYDRIADES

The Water [NYMPHS].

Like fish, they 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 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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hydriads graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hydriads movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hydriads statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hydriads. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
