Undine are the creation and chosen race of the god Tefnut.

Undine are flowing humanoids with loose features that seem to shift slightly over time. They are creatures of the water, and after the War in Heaven they find themselves lacking something vital to their existence and have become notorious nomads. Bands of Undine will travel into cities that will let them in, and some will gorge themselves on the city's water supply as their bodies can hold water for immense amounts of time. This is fine for larger cities where water is plentiful, but a band of Undine can completely drive a city to drought by accident, leading to persecution of Undine. What's made worse is an Undine driven to thirst without morality, as they can drink the blood of creatures to keep themselves hydrated and the worst of them will actively hunt other people to drain them of their precious lifewater to keep themselves sated.

Undine have skin tones that mirror water, some are pale or deep blue like the oceans that were, some are pale green or brown like river water. Their hair is usually a tangled mess of green tones that looks like seaweed or river life and their skin has rippled patterns that are unique to each undine that look akin to tattoos in other cultures. They are a lithe and thin race, with long arms and legs. They are sharp eared and small bits of vestigial fins can be found on the backs of elbows and behind ears in some family lines. Its said their eyes reflect the waters of the World that Was.
