The Sea Gods are often capricious, but can be helpful to humans if approached properly and with due respect. They have long been regarded with a mixture of reverence and fear by those who would travel by sea. Most sea-farers would never consider leaving the shore without first making a suitable offering to ensure his (or her) safety while on the waters.
Goddesses appear either in the form of a mermaid or as a blue-robed woman, while Gods tend to resemble the Old Man of the Sea with long white hair.
