Dark, stinging tendrils seep from this egg and often lash out at anything that brushes past them.

Little is known about the lives of enigmatic tidal wraithes, but one would be hard-pressed to find a sailor who does not know to be wary of moonless nights close to shore. Although relatively peaceful most days, tidal wraithes have unpredictable tempers and even members of the Order of the Trident must be vigilant when working with these creatures. They can seem quite affectionate at times, favoring some people in particular to hear their haunting songs and gift with sea shells or pearls. Most believe this to be a false affection, though, as a wraithe is just as likely to drown the person of its liking as offer them trinkets. Tidal wraithes may live in any sort of water, but they prefer to take up residence in large tide pools or shallow bays, especially those where lives have been lost. Sailors tell stories of how the first wraithe was a shipwrecked woman cursed forever after to drown people and feed on the ghosts of the dead to extend her own life. If they are unable to do so, she and her wraithe descendants would conjure up massive, unnatural storms that would destroy whole seaside cities. These stories are not to be taken lightly, for tidal wraithes are long-lived and powerful creatures that can deal such damage to ports and villages. Water magi often seek out creatures that take up residence near a populated area to prevent just such an occurrence, for the sake of both the local people and the tidal wraithes themselves.
