Mythology: the Each-uisge is a mythical creature that is similar to a kelpie. They are water horses who are seen as more dangerous than kelpies in mythology who prefer calm, stagnant salt water lakes and sea lochs. Each-uisge can turn into humans when they are not in the water, but can be identified by the patches of dirt or mud that stay on their bodies from the sea along with seaweed tangled in their damp hair. They also shapshift into fine horses or ponies while on land. It is said that if a man mounts one of they are only safe on their back as long as the Each-uisge is away from any water. If it sees or smells water it will run into the loch and drag its rider to the bottom to devour them. All they leave behind is their victim's liver.

Extra: Each-uisge are most commonly near-sighted because theu live at the bottom of large bodies of water. Like fish, they have extrememly sensistive bodies that can sense vibrations in the water and air that alert them to movement from far away. Because of this capability, their eyesight does not develop to full potential and is only ever needed for close range.
