Selkies are sentient beings, shapeshifters who usually take the form of seals. But they can also appear as human, both male and female, and in that form, they are incredibly attractive and there are many legends about humans falling in love with them. when a selkie changes into its human form, it leaves behind its seal pelt and cannot return to the water without it.
Little is known about their culture, whether they use technology in any way and no-one has bothered to study their language. In human form, most selkies speak some human language.
