Oceanids encompass thousands of hybrid entities who were said by the Greeks to be the children of Oceanus and Tethys. They are both male and female whose hybrid manifestations range from half-human to half-fish, half-eel, half-octopus, half-shark, half-sea horse, etc. They were also said to be capable of transforming their entire shape into human form, or an aquatic creature; hiding their Immortal roots. They protected various bodies of water and kept them from being abused.

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 Oceanid is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep your Oceanid under control if you feel it is becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Place the vessel near charcoal, it will subdue them. Only use this technique if you feel your companion is 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.
