I have made some research on these beings but have not had much success at finding anything that details them to any extent, so a good part of this post has been filled-in with my own thoughts.
Ashrays have their origins attributed to Scottish mythology. They can be male or female and are completely translucent water creatures. Ashrays are also known as Asrais, or water-lovers, and are often mistaken for sea ghosts. My thought here is since there is such an abundance of beings we call “shape shifters” mentioned in most mythologies that the possibility of these beings being shape shifters cannot be ruled out.
Ashrays, both male and female, appear to be about twenty years old in human time, but like many other elementals such as fairies and elves, are much more ancient then their appearance.
So we have established that Ashrays are known as the Water Lovers, or another name, Asrais; that these creatures can be either sex, male or female, and can appear to you in a form of your own conception. I have come to the understanding that most, if not all, of these beings have the capability of telepathy and appear to you as what you conceive them to be; they are completely nocturnal and can not live on the land for long; you will find most times under water.
I think one reason is that myths and legends are set in our world, and some have not been proven wrong. It gives us that wonderfully creepy feeling that there is so much we don’t know about the world of the unseen.
I love studying mythology! It absolutely fascinates me and provides excellent fodder for my writing. I am familiar with many legendary creatures, but I have also found just how much of an incredible number of these creatures I did not know about until I started this blog. But when I came across this a day or two ago it was totally new to me – Ashrays.
Thank you, dear friends and followers, for letting me share this with you. I would greatly love to hear your thoughts on this. Thank you!
