The Selkie is a mythical creature who lives in the sea as a seal and on land as a human. If her selkie pelt is taken and hidden whilst she is in human form, she may never return to her true home. You may glimpse her then, stood on a distant shore gazing longingly at the oceon for countless hours.

Unless of course her skin is found again and then she will slip away quietly beneath the waves never to be seen again.
