Naiads are one of the three classes of water nymphs. They reside of fresh water such as rivers, fountains, ponds, and wells. The Naiads can be broken down into even smaller categories for each type of body of water. They’re each connected to their body of water, and if it were to dry up- they would die. Like all nymphs, they were pretty much sex symbols. Sometimes they seduced others- making kings fall in love with them. Other times they were seduced- falling in love from afar and doing crazy or jealous things. Most stories of Naiads were cautionary tales of the beautiful yet dangerous sea damsels.
