Female fairies that inhabit the mountainous land of northern Italy, the Austrian Alps and Slovenia. They have human bodies with horses or goats legs. They are usually friendly to humans but it is advisable to ask their permission when stepping foot in their territory. If ignored and one steps foot in the muddy waters where they live, they will be disrupted and attack the trespasser. Aguane are however fond of children who they give piggyback rides to, to traverse rivers.
