A to Z Challenge!

Welcome to the A to Z Challenge! Today’s letter is E…

Legendary Creatures

girls140Eleionomae were Naiads of marshes in Greek mythology. Eleionomaeses are the nymphs of marshes; they live in the marsh waters and often mislead travelers with illusions they create. These illusions are usually images of the victims’ loved ones.

Eleionomaeses also lure young, virgin boys and seduce them with their wild beauty.

Eleionomae are nymphs of the marsh. They share many qualities in common with common nymphs, but also have some differences. Being spirits of nature, they manifest in an appearance that is appropriate for their environment; In this case, they appear as female common lizardfolk. The difference between an Eleionomae and an actual female lizardfolk are evident when one examines them. Eleionomae have an almost unnatural aura of beauty, as well as an unquantifiable air of mystery and grace to their every move.
