Water: Mermaid Picture

i know you're getting tired of this style, but hey, it's the only decent thing that came out of my pc today. anyway, this is the water element of a 4-part series i'm doing. the theme, as mentioned, is "4 Elements" with each being represented by a half-human, half-animal. for water, it's obviously a mermaid. the earth's next, with a female centaur. i have no fucken idea what to put for fire! any of you guys know of a mythological being which is half-human, half animal that may represent fire? (i'm gonna use a harpy for air).


just edited to add links to the other 3 elements:

earth: centaur [link]

fire: lamia [link]

air: harpy [link]
