Water Spirit, a Nixie


Murrele is a well known water spirit, a Nixie, in the Teltow region. Nixes are water sprites who try to lure people into the water. They assume many different shapes, including that of a human, fish, and snake. The females are beautiful women with the tail of a fish. When they are in human forms, they can be recognized by the wet hem of their clothes. The Nixes are portrayed as malicious in some stories but harmless and friendly in others.


Murrele is ancient. She has been part of the land ever since the glaciers melted and formed the lakes in this part of Europe. Murrele is a jaggling and lady of the water spirit gafflings that inhabit each unpolluted lake in the Teltow.
