Lone child occupying the quiet abandoned space of pools, beaches and water parks. Forgotten. Creates mischief through slippery tiles; entices children to abandon safety rules; lures them into the deep end. Not vengeful (doesn’t know right from wrong) – just lonely and wants a friend. Were they themselves once a child lost to such a space?

“Although they had many different roles, Oceanids were responsible for watching over children”. Perhaps this child was overlooked/ forgotten?
