Nøkks are a species of Vanir, belonging to the House of Many Waters. Usually they are native to the icy seas of the north.

Physical Description

Nøkks are around eight feet long and look like a Helish twin to a Mer male. Instead of humanoid feautures, the nøkks present a jutting lower jaw with a too-wide, lipless mouth, full of needle-thin teeth. They have overlarge, milky eyes, like some of the fishes of the deep. Their tail is mostly translucent - bony and sharp - and above it, a warped, muscled torso rises. No hair covers their chest or head, and their scaled, four-fingered hands end in daggerlike ivory claws.

Powers & Abilities



  • Air is leathal to nøkks - if one is exposed for more than a few seconds, its vital organs would begin shutting down, its skin peeling away as if burned.
