Minor inhabitants and hangers-on of the Courts of Water, the least water spirits are creatures of blue-gold liquid and icy white foam; sometimes as fluid as water, sometimes hard as ice. Least water spirits take the shapes of slender piscine creatures, or of shoals of tiny fish and serpentine beasts, and are scattered with pearls which are their eyes.

Least water spirits attack for 1-6 hit points of damage, and their fluids drug their victim if a save vs. poison is failed; the victim feels a lassitude for three rounds, being -2 to all rolls and moving at half-speed. They are immune to non-magical weapons, take one extra hit point of damage from all elemental sources save for water, and will regenerate two hit points per round as long as they are in contact with a reasonably pure water source.

I love that these can be shoals of tiny critters. It makes them more surreal.
