A '''Kelpie''' is a shapeshifting [[water]] [[demon]] native to [[Great Britain|Britain]] and [[Ireland]]. Able to take any form, they usually take the form of a horse with a bullrush mane. After luring unwary travellers onto their backs, they drag them underwater and eat them, allowing the entrails to float to the surface of the water. A Kelpie can be rendered docile and harmless by using a [[Placement Charm]] to put a bridle over the creature's head.

A Kelpie is a shapeshifting water demon native to Britain and Ireland. Able to take any form, they usually take the form of a horse with a bullrush mane. After luring unwary travellers onto their backs, they drag them underwater and eat them, allowing the entrails to float to the surface of the water. A Kelpie can be rendered docile and harmless by using a Placement Charm to put a bridle over the creature's head.

Kelpie hair can be used as a wand core, although it is said to be an inferior substance when compared with Unicorn hair, Phoenix feather and Dragon heartstring.

Known KelpiesEdit

  • The largest reported Kelpie is the Loch Ness Monster, who resides in Loch Ness, Scotland. Its favourite form is that of a sea serpent which leads to many Muggle sightings.
