The Nine Daughters 

of Mother Sea

The Nine Daughters, for those of the Northern Seas, they are their myths, the creators of their lands, the caretakers of the sea and her bounty. Believing the Daughters had tread upon her domain, Mother Earth cursed each of Mother Sea’s daughters into the form of a creature that is half horse and half…well, fish-like. Because she was not completely heartless (though Mother Sea would beg to differ), Mother Earth allowed that every two hundred years they may take their true form, but never at once, and for only and exactly one year or death may take them.
