The Selkies are described in folk legend, as being a sort of half man half seal.  Typical stories tell that a fisherman happens upon a Selkie and is thereafter endowed with great luck, and so he believes that the fortune comes from the Selkie and attempts to force her into staying with him by steeling and hiding her Sea coat.  Usually it ends in sorrow for the fisherman and the Selkie returns to the sea.
