Bestiary EntryEdit

Kanji


邪神の忠実なる番犬。
古の時代、 主神に背き邪神に褒返った罰で、 体中の皮膚をはがされた。 淡水に弱く、海中にしか住めない彼は、毎日塩水に体を焼かれる痛みを味わってぃる。

Rough Translation:
Faithful watchdog of the false god.
Aeons ago, in service to his master, he rebelled against the chief god, and was duely punished; the flesh stripped from his body.
Unable to live in, and weak to, fresh water, it lives in the sea, savouring the pain that burns the body in salt water, every day.


EtymologyEdit

Nuckalaveepursuesavictim

The Nuckelavee pursues an unfortunate victim.

The Nuckelavee is a creature derived from Scottish Isle folklore.

It is described as a malignant sea-dwelling centaur-like creature, without skin, just bare muscle, with sickly yellow veins. It has two heads, as though it were riding the lower half of a horse.

The "horse" head has a single flaming eye, and a gaping maw for a mouth that could spew toxins. The "human" head had a pig-like snout, and a wide, whale-like mouth.

It could spread plague and disease where it trod, and wilt crops. It was vulnerable to fresh water, and could be evaded by escaping over a flowing (fresh water) river.
