NAIADS
Also known as NAIADES, NAIAS

The Stream and River Nymphs

These lovely ladies are the sparkly NYMPHS of running waters, babbling brooks, silvery streams and rippling rivers.

Being water spirits (HYDRIADS) of individual streams, they tend to be loyal to their locality, and often seem to end up marrying or otherwise dallying with the local king or hero. They are also on hand to rescue maidens in distress; some of them used to be maidens in distress themselves.

They take a very dim view of water pollution. No pissing in the stream please, and no chucking your garbage in the river. Take your trash home with you or face the consequences.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Naiads graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Naiads 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 Naiads statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Naiads. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
