Hrökkáll meaning Recoiled eel is an Icelandic cryptid that has iron-hard scales and razor sharp fins. It lives in stagnant ponds, polluted waters, and occasionally rivers. It secretes a corrosive poison that it can utilize to burrow through the earth. They will wait for humans or other animals to step into the waters in which they live, then coil around their legs, slicing through flesh with their fins.

Story

There was once a wizard who gave life to a dead half-rotten eel, intending for it to become an evil and toxic being. The resurrected eel was transformed into the first beast of its kind, and its descendants went on to live in polluted waters.
