Quoth the Korrigan:

“It’s a beautiful evening, n’est pas, Holy Sister? Come swim with me… No, No… leave your habits on the shore, the lake is perfectly warm.”

Kith Excerpt:

Enigmatic and profound as the murky lakes that they call home, Korrigan are darker cousins of the Dracae. Still tied to the Freshwater of the French countryside, the Korrigan don’t care for the freely flowing rivers, and are forced to dwell in cold and shadowy lakes. However, they can freely traverse whatever water-ways they wish, even able to venture out into the frigid depths of the oceans with no harm done. Yet they always return to their rural ponds, jealous and territorial of outsiders.

Much like the Dracae, they once realmed the whole of the Breton and Keltic lands, from Ireland to the Pyrennees and beyond. But the arrival of Christendom found their territory dwindling over the years. This is probably why they have such a strong disdain for the trappings of the Christ-God. This fact, plus their dual nature would paint them as infernal incubi, tempting demons, to the early Priests who battled them over the centuries.

Their dual nature is what makes the Korrigan a cursed Fabian (Kith). They are beautiful sirens at night, Mermen and Mermaids that would rival their Merrow cousins. In the moonlight they are gorgeous sharp faced creatures, with tight muscles and the lower bodies of eels, with long tapering tails, powerfully muscled with glittering iridescent skin. By day however, they are hideously deformed eel-creatures. Their once beautiful faces gain the horrible visage of a piscine nightmare, with a sharp beak full of hundreds of razor-sharp teeth, hooked nose, and rheumy-milk eyes.

Despite their outward appearance (and their strong disdain for the Church), they are relatively benevolent Fae. Their ugliness means that they can appreciate their beauty, and their ability to explore all the waters allows them to see the world from other perspectives. Of all the French Fabian, save maybe the Portunes, the Korrigan are probably the most gregarious (with the exception of dealing with the Church of course).
