Water Nymph R.C.C.

Back to Main

    Loro Kidul was one of the most widely worshipped of the old goddesses of Indonesia. Even when most of the country was converted to Muslim, Loro Kidul remained widely worshipped; consequently, when the Great Cataclysm occured, she felt it immediately, and has been active on the planet since then, do to her great kinship with the country.
    Loro Kidul has metamorphosis abilities, but mostly appears at an attractive, middle-aged Oriental woman. She usually helps from afar, offering her help through visions, dreams, and granting of special abilities to those who she takes a liking to. She usually takes a liking to warriors who do their best to help the environment, and pays the due respect to the creatures of the ocean.
    Unlike many water goddesses, she spends most of her time on land, in her palace. Her palace is right in the line of fire of the insane Machine Intelligence, and Dltni has paid no respect to the goddess, and his minions are doing their best to destroy her, her champions, and her minion race, the water nymphs. This is a battle that is currently going badly for the goddess, who is desperately trying to turn the tide.
    Loro Kidul doesn't associate with any of her old Indonesian diefic compatriots. Since all but her and Harimau lost all worship, they all left and forgot Indonesia in search of more receptive worshippers. Loro Kidul and Harimau haven't had a word with each other for 450 years.
