German water spirits which haunt large stretches of water.

Traditions state that the nixies attempt to avoid human contact, although some legends state that they require one human sacrifice per year. If this requirement is not met, the spirits will lure an unsuspecting soul into the water to be drowned. A common superstition attributed to this spirit classification was that any child born with an abnormally large head was the result of a nixie disguising itself as a human being to copulate with a human female.
