175: Selkies

Often referred to as the kinder, more gentle version of Mermaids and Sirens, Selkies are often overlooked due to the tragic stories surrounding them, hopefully their escape, but then… that’s it?

Not quite. It is true Selkies hold a different magic, but a powerful one. Very powerful. The folklore and the magic are what we discuss today!
