“Sea wave of ones with no souls”
I The undines are the sea fairies of ancient Greece, who appeared in the Aegean Sea as seahorses with human faces and the word ‘Undine’ means wave. Though more frequently they have the appearance of a beautiful human but they lack souls.
In Christian tradition the word ‘soul’ ties in with salvation and damnation – that the undines have no soul means they are outside of human law.
