SISIUTL

Nuxalk Water Spirit

Rather strange magic water snake spirit

He is a water snake spirit with three heads: one human and two reptile. Sisiutl is the personification of Fluidity and Water, representing wetness, blood, sweat and tears.

He’s a pet of Qamaits, and lives in a pool behind a sky home of hers. Can be summoned to Earth by magic, for good or harm (as in: it could seem a good idea to harm your enemies).

His skin is impervious to blades or chainsaws, but we can give you a little tip: he is allergic to holly.
