As a lover of anything ocean-related, it was bound to happen when we would talk about a sea creature we are all familiar with. Let’s jump right in!
Ceasg | Scotland
“Mermaid that grants three wishes when captured.”
- The ceasg is a fancy (if you’re not Scottish) word for ‘mermaid.’
- In Gaelic, they’re known as maighdean mhara or maid of the sea.
- She’s half-woman and half-salmon. But a little different than the long tail, we’re used to seeing.
- She can get married but she’ll always go back to her first love: the sea. If she bears a male offspring, they’ll usually become a sailor – a damn good one.
- Defense is needed. It’s simple: don’t acknowledge them, show them respect, no eye contact, and don’t go with them if they ask you to.
