The Fairy Lady of the Fountain & The Gaurdian of the Golden Bowl
Lady Laudine and Sir Escolado where the rightful keepers of a magical fountain and a golden bowl. When water was gathered in the bowl from the fountain and poured upon the ground the action would bring about storms that although terrible would rejuvenate the surrounding desert lands that otherwise saw no rain. Eventually Escolado was slain protecting the golden bowl which was mistaken as a holy relic by another knight (Sir Gwain).
Offspring: The water fairy Melusine. (Serpentine from the waist down)
After the slaying of her first husband the Lady Laudine was eventually persuaded by her handmaiden to accept the regard of the knight who killed her husband. Lady Laudine and Sir Gwain were wed.
Offspring: Lady Gertrude (Of mixed blood but predominantly human.)
The Water Fairy and the Elf Prince of the Green
After being rejected by a human lover once he saw her from the waist down Melusine drowned the man in anger and fled deep below the surface of the pool she lived and resurfaced in a secret lagoon hidden within the rock face of the water fall that flowed into her pool. Here she was quietly observed without her knowledge for several days by a traveling Earthlong Prince who had taken refuge in the lagoon to contemplate the most logical end of his life.
The prince was so struck by her serpentine grace as she swam in the lagoon that he eventually regained the will to live and asked the Fairy for her hand in marriage. The couple was wed and permanently settled in the Lagoon.
Offspring: Princess Virva (So named after the will'o the wisps that glow and float upon the surface of standing water, a symbol of Melusine and Asgar's love.)
The Fairy Princess of the Watery Green and the Sleeping Poet
Able to travel between the worlds through the portal of water Princess Virva once emerged from a dazing brook where a man lay asleep beneath a tree with a book of poems open across his chest. Intrigued Virva approached the man and gently woke him asking that he let her sit awhile while he read from the collection by Yeats. Unaccustomed to having beautiful young women approach him with such a request the man felt inspired and paged through the volume until he found the poem of The Song of Wandering Aengus.
So taken by this the princess asked the man to let her return his kindness with a kiss. When the man accepted Virva kissed him and brought him back to her homeland where they spent several seasons together. Eventually Virva feel with child by her lover and implored him on a whim to go into the woods and find her the dew of a special flower that would seal the strength of their love and bind him to her homeland forever. The man found the flower and drank of its dew but in his search he became lost and never returned.
Offspring: Meriel the White Huntress (Half human, half Elf)
