A morpha appears as a small violet or red orb the size of a hylian's head, surrounded with a slimy, crackling, and semitransparent membrane. One is never found out of a body of water. A morpha is not merely aquatic, but is able to magically manipulate the water around it. It does so to swim at incredibly high speeds, and can even form limbs out of water around itself to grab prey much larger than its body.
Encounters with a morpha are quite rare, but more often than not it is the result of water seeming to come alive and reach out of a lake, pond, or coastline to drag an individual to their death. Underwater, a morpha can slowly dissolve and digest virtually any corpse with the acidic membrane that immediately surrounds its body.
Chu Nature. The morpha doesn't require air or sleep.
