Story:

Kelpie take the form of a horse, sometimes even that of a woman, and reside near bodies of water. In their animal form Kelpie are usually black, their skin like that of a seal but incredibly cold. Their manes are always wet and dripping. It transforms into a woman to lure men into traps, often drowning them and eating the body. When touched the skin becomes adhesive which is how it drags its victims.
