Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Naiad is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. Naiad do not like being kept somewhere they do not have access to water or humidity. You can put their vessel in an airtight container to subdue them. Only use this technique if you feel they have become becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: greek water spirit, naiad, water spirit
