As with much of folktalery, variations on the tale of Mélusine abound, but the themes of secrecy and trust remain present throughout. A fair-faced young woman with a soft, melodic voice, this water nymph was born of a union between human nobility and Fair folk and was spirited away to the land of Avalon upon the discovery of her mother's fae origins by her distrusting father. It is told that, as an adult, Mélusine would require of her betrothed the same conditions imposed to her father; that she be allowed a moment of privacy once a week as she bathed — for you see, Mélusine conceals a two-forked tail (and occasionally fin-like wings) like that of a siren, serpent, or dragon, which she reveals during these bathing rituals. In one telling, a bathing Mélusine is spied upon by her curious husband, and, outraged by the betrayal, a mournful wail is ripped from between her lips as she transforms into a sea serpent, never to be seen again.
