Sea Demons, half-fish and half-human with crablike claws and long spindly horns like swordfish

They ride on waterspouts and the rainbow express. Just for kicks they hurl flying fish at folk, which can knock them out, and in some cases right out. As in dead.

Their boss is apparently named Ngorieru should you wish to register a complaint.
