Shape-Changer A seal looking up out of the water has a face which is not dissimilar to that of a human and it is said that mariners believed that they were looking at the faces of sea-dwelling women, hence one possible origin of the mermaid and siren myths. The stories of seals which turn into women are many and varied. Some of these females are benign while others are preoccupied with luring unsuspecting humans to their deaths. Sometimes known as a selkie, the seal can often change into a human by shedding her skin, then can live life as a human, even marry and have children, but she must keep her skin safe, without it she will not be able to become a seal again and return to the sea.
