Nure-Onna, the so-called “Wet Woman,” was a unique immortal creature of uncertain origin. Supposedly, she was once a beautiful woman with numerous suitors, unable to have even the briefest moment alone. Eventually she found herself pregnant, but the baby died early and the man abandoned her to her grief. She appeared as a beautiful but melancholy girl washing her long inky-black hair near a source of water. If she was bothered the woman transformed into the body of a huge snake with a woman's head and crushed the interloper. Sometimes the Nure-Onna was seen with a small “baby” that was actually a Konak jiji, a devious pekkle spirit which could become impossibly heavy. [1]
