Every once in awhile I get really into Greek Mythology. I particularly enjoy how the gods bust people up, punishing them in ways that make your step dad’s beat down feel like a walk in the park. One of the hottest things to come from Greek Mythology are the Nymphs.
A nymph in Greek mythology is a female minor nature deity typically associated with a particular location or landform. Different from gods, nymphs are generally regarded as divine spirits who animate nature, and are usually depicted as beautiful, young nubile maidens who love to dance and sing; their amorous freedom sets them apart from the restricted and chaste wives and daughters of the Greek polis. They dwell in mountains and groves, by springs and rivers, and also in trees and in valleys and cool grottoes. Although they would never die of old age nor illness, and could give birth to fully immortal children if mated to a god, they themselves were not necessarily immortal, and could be beholden to death in various forms.
That was copy/pasted from Wikipedia before anyone calls me out.
