Sea witches, also known as sea hags, water hags and water witches, are powerful sorceresses and demons from the depths of the stormy seas.
Sea witches are dangerous sea demons who are famous for their bargains. Many seek sea witches for help. Sea hags will always help, but she will ask for a price and will always twist her promise. Her most famous bargains are with warm hearted mermaids. The sea hag will promise to transform the mermaid into a human for a month. If the mermaid fails to find love, the sea hag will capture and keep her in her lair until the mermaid decides to give up her immortality, dying in the process.
Sea witches are powerful demons. They are famous for summoning fearsome storms and typhoons. They enjoy sinking ships, boats and other vessels. A sea witch's lair is surrounded with the bones of sailors the sea hag has killed.
Sea hags can be summoned from the watery depths by mortals if they wish for her to grant a wish. Sea witches will grant their request but she will ask for something in return either a favour like killing a foe or offering something they posses such as their souls. However, the sea hag will twist their wishes, making them more like curses than wishes. Woe to those who break their bargains with the sea witch as her vengence is cruel and dark and the sea witch is both devious and merciless as well as relentless.
Sea witches are devious, cunning beings. They always, if they can, twist to truth and speak in riddles and lies. Sea witches usually use their bargains to further their own goals. The sea hag is cunning and more sly than a fox.
However, she will harm any who stand in her way. As well as being cunning, she is also evil, merciless and ruthless. Sea hags can be vicious if angered.
Sea witches are grotesque, fish-like hags with slimy blue, green tinged skin covered in scales and barnacles. A sea hag's face resembles a hideous old woman's head. Her jaws are filled with tiny, sharp green teeth, their eyes are reptilian and have spiny finned ears and hands. Instead of hair, a water hag possesses long dreadlocks made of kelp, coral and water weed. Underneath this nest of seaweed are long, venemous sea snakes. Hags wear rags and robes woven from fishing nets, scales, shells and seaweed. A sea witch has the lower body of an octopus with long algae and barnacle covered tentacles.
