The UndineThis is a featured page

The Undines are the Water Nymphs of ancient Greece, who appeared in the Aegean Sea as seahorses with human faces and the word 'Undine' means wave. Though more frequently they have the appearance of a beautiful human but they lack souls. In Christian tradition the word 'soul' ties in with salvation and damnation - that the Undines have no soul means they are outside of human law.

I've been researching ondines for a greek project in social studies, and the Undine species is not greek. It's German...this species is supposed to be creature that live in or on water, so they do warship or are guided by Artemis; god of hunt. The reason I made this is to ask; If they appear as sea horses with faces, how are they water spirits? They aren't faires, but are often confused with them, also, they live in any body of water, not just the sea. So...how would you describe their form when not a human? And are their mortal, or immortal. I've been given reallly misleading information; one myth says that ondines are immortal unless they marry and bare a child, while the other states that they are mortal but can give birth to immortal children if mated with god. And..are they all female? Who made them..? Are they all siblings? I've got questions, and I'm hoping for anyone to answer them. Please reply A.S.A.P. Thanks... -R.S.
