Fable Friday: Naiads

This week I decided not the focus on one specific myth, but a group of mythological creatures: the Naiads. In Greek Mythology, Naiads are spirits/nymphs that preside over freshwater streams, rivers, etc. They are one of the three types of water nymphs. The other two are the Nereids and Oceanids. The Nereids are usually associated with the sea. Oceanids are associated with the oceans, and there are over three-thousand of them according to myth. Naiads are said to be the least helpful to humans compared to the others, often leading humans to get lost in swamps, and otherwise seeking revenge against their cheating lovers.
