Once depicted as man-headed fish who cried tears of pearls, modern Ningyo are depicted like merfolk, only with webbed fingers & ears, long fingers with claws, razor shapr teath, & a bad reputation with fishermen for knocking over boats & stealing whatever they find. While Ningyo have a taste for human flesh, whoever eats their guts (said to be the best part)will live forecer but eternally crave to eat Ningo flesh forever.
