Mermaids are legendary aquatic creatures with the upper bodies of humans and the tails of fish. Mermaids are sometimes depicted as perilous creatures associated with floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drowning. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition) they can be benevolent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Even mermaids need a little sun sometimes.
