A malevolent Water Horse that takes the false appearance of a handsome reliable steed and offers itself to be ridden. However when someone attempts to mount the horse, it runs off and carries its rider to the bottom of a lake of which it lives and devours its victim. The Scottish version can morph into a handsome man and beautiful bird. It is believed that if someone successfully subdues this beast by mounting it they will have a super powered, strong and reliable horse so long as the horse does not see water. Similar to Kelpie except that the Each Uisge lives in still waters.

Did you find Each Uisge interesting? Add it to a role playing fantasy game, action or adventure story or draw your own doodle. Ireland is regarded as the heart of Celtic myth in modern day. For more on Fairies, Dragons and Spirits why not go there yourself and live the myths? Celtic Dragon and Fairy art is very popular such as the works of Howard D Johnson and Jane S Weills. Composer Medwynn Goodall does excellent Celtic music to create that Fairy fantasy feeling. But if you are into your horror films watch the Banshee (2006) - celtic horror brought to life. On another note the TV series Merlin featuring a talking Dragon and multitude of Medieval - Celtic creatures might take your fancy.
