Apsarae are the bizarre spirits that govern the creatures of the sea.


The spirits of ordinary creatures can seem quite alien from an anthropomorphic viewpoint — but Apsarae are stranger still beyond that. The Apsarae are commonly split into two camps, the Boned and the Unboned. Apsarae of the Boned variety symbolize sharks, fishes, sea turtles, porpoises, and eels. On the other hand, Unboned Apsarae are represented by creatures such as lobsters, annelids, crabs, jellyfish, mollusks, and nudibrachs. The Boned Apsarae tend to fall into alliance with The Fish Bearer. The Unboned associate with the Tentacled One or the Shelled One, whichever one is closer to their nature. As spirits go, they appear to be nothing more than rank and file in the Umbral ecology — but when need be, they act with a strange unity that’s baffling to outside observers.
