Nøkks are around eight feet long and look like a Helish twin to a Mer male. Instead of humanoid features, 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 fish of the deep. Their tail is mostly translucent, and is bony and sharp. Above their tail 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 lethal to nøkks. If one is exposed for more than a few seconds, its vital organs begin shutting down and its skin peels away, as if burned.
