The upper half of a water weird typically appeared like a beautiful, translucent, blue female humanoid composed entirely of water, but the lower half could appear serpentine or like a column of water rising from the pool.
Water weirds fed off the essence of other creatures, though how was unknown.
Due to their bodies being composed entirely of water, fire-based spells were ineffective against them while cold-based spells would slow their movement. The spell purify water was also known to be very deadly towards them.
Water weirds generally fought by striking out at their opponents with their serpentine form, paralyzing them. They would then drag the opponent into the water and attempt to drown them.
