Water sprites
I'm looking for lore about water sprites. I've found some excellent articles at Endicott Studio, and I was hoping some of you folks know of some other online resources I could look to? Thanks!

You might want to try this link: www.pitt.edu/~dash/water.html
And have you considered looking at 'The Lady of the Lake' myth from Arthurian Legend. There are also meraids to take into consideration. From my experience there are a lot of online resources on merpeople...you might want to try wikipedia as a starting point.

Re: Water sprites
I agree, wikipedia is a great research tool. Check out this list of water sprites: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_sprite

Re: Water sprites
You may also want to try online the Encyclopedia Mythica. Also try the keyword asrai.

Re: Water sprites
Rusalki are water nyphs in Slavic lore. There is an opera "Rusalka" (Dvorak) that has a water sprite (her father) in it. The story is a version of a mermaid.
