Of all the wonders of the ocean, The Gupper is the most strange. It is the size of a large fishing boat, though only because of its long and spindly limbs that end in paddle-like hands and feet.
Sailors fear The Gupper, for it can wreck a ship with the batting of a hand or the kick of a foot. The Gupper is the protector of the seas; anything that wasn't born in it or on its shores is at the mercy of The Gupper's wrath. It will drag down faeriefolk to the bottom of the ocean and destroy vessels that use the ocean surface.
Thankfully, the oceans of Faerie are wide and deep, and The Gupper simply cannot be everywhere at once. But the risk for sailors and other sea users alike is immense.
Dare you go into the water while The Gupper could be nearby? I wouldn't.

My Ma and Pa got me the three seasons of the Australian TV show called Frontline for my b'day. It is one of my all time favourite shows. It was waaaay ahead of its time (it was made in the mid to late 90's). It is a behind-the-scenes, satirical look at a fictitious current affairs show. It is truly champagne comedy mixed with innovative style. Gold, I tell you, gold!
