(Greek Spirits) NEREIDES

Also known as NEREIDS

The fifty Nymph daughters of Nereus and Doris who dwell in a cavern at the bottom of the Aegean Sea.

They Nereids are pretty stunning, and normally naked, but they're not just sea-side eye candy, and are extremely friendly and helpful towards sailors, especially during perilous storms.

Often spotted frollicking with dolphins, they are ladies in waiting to their sister and queen, Amphritrite, and one of their more famous feats was guiding Jason and his Argonauts safely between the crags of the wandering rocks before they could crash together and smash the Argo and her heroic crew.

They mostly ride on Hippokampoi, not to be confused with Hippopotamus', which have neither horses heads or fishes tails. You should never try to ride a Hippo.
