Example text

The Kappa is the size of a ten-year-old boy; it has webbed hands and feet, a tortoise shell covering its back, the face of a monkey, a long beaky nose. It is quite slimy and emits a putrid odor. Its most singular characteristic is a large bowllike indentation on the top of its head, filled with a clear, gelatinous fluid. This mysterious substance is the secret of the Kappa's power. Around this indentation it wears its black hair in a short pageboy style. The Kappa pulls its human victims into the water and sucks the life out of them.

It is both the elixir of life and the source of the deluge. Approaching a body of water is still an occasion for prayer in many traditions. The washing of hands and feet, the baptismal font, the sacred spring, and the holy well — all flow with myth. Human sacrifices were routinely cast into water to propitiate the spirits within, and then fortunes were told by oracles at the riverbank. Vast seas with their still uncharted depths and their mysterious hidden creatures have prompted many sailors' tales.

In the lore of Japan, India, Egypt, and Babylonia, and in the Jewish tradition, it was the primal sea from which creation emerged. Ancient deities imbued the Nile, the Euphrates, the Ganges, and the fountains of ancient Rome. As a sacred element, water is believed to hold purifying and healing powers. It can relieve thirst, renew the earth, or destroy by flood. If water is withheld there will be drought and death. It is both the elixir of life and the source of the deluge. Approaching a body of water is still an occasion for prayer in many traditions.
