They are a shape-shifting race that entice their human prey by either appearing as a beautiful woman, or a strong horse near or in a bit of running water. It is also said that if they physically touch a human, the human in question is charmed, and the kelpie brings it down into the water, drowning the human in the process. The human becomes the kelpie’s next meal.
