  • Shy: Will try to charm intruders, rather than entering combat.
  • Weapons: Daggers and small tridents (as spears).
  • Charm: 10 nixies together can cast a charm to enchant a victim to serve them for one year. Save versus spells or be charmed: move towards the nixies (resisting those who try to prevent it); defend the nixies; obey the nixies’ commands (if understood); unable to cast spells or use magic items; unable to harm the nixies. Killing the nixies breaks the charm.
  • Summon giant bass: Each nixie can summon one fish to aid in combat (Giant Bass).
  • Bestow water breathing: Can cast upon charmed slaves. Lasts for one day, then must be refreshed.
