A bestiary of all the creatures, monsters, and races in and around Nereid.
Female forms that look translucent as they move. They rarely show their solid form and prefer to be made up of wind and rain as it makes them a difficult foe to face. Glowing blue eyes, a storm always accompany them wherever they go. They usually travel in packs.
Commonly found across the border of Aiolos Reef created by Poseidon himself to protect Nereid from the Sea Monsters of old. They were charged with caring for the reef and creating a boundary between ships and the old magic waters of the world's end. They're not inherently evil creatures though they have no conscious of who they sink below the waves, they're guardians of Poseidon gifted to him by his brother Zeus and have served the Aiolos Reef for thousands of years.
“Aurai!” She screams and as her voice hits the deck the wind spirits appear in their ghostly forms screeching and crying, trying to pull the men overboard.
Their bodies twist and mold into the rain and wind, scratching at the crew. One of the spirits catches sight of Shea’s sword and comes flying towards her with a high-pitched scream.
Shea slices through her body, the Aurai’s form disintegrating and sizzling as the gold pierces her invisible flesh. The crew cheers for the minor victory before going back to their own battles. The good thing about Aurai, purity is their weakness and that’s just what Shea’s sword is made of, pure gold gifted to her by an elven blacksmith in the state of Oceanus.
