Selkie, Selky

Selkie, Selky: A selkie is a mythical creature which is a mixture of human and seal. Selkies seem to be predominantly female and closely related to mermaids. In the incestuous logic of fantasy, selkies are the explanation for the myth of mermaids, as if selkies are more real than mermaids.
He'd thought there were none of her people left, the selkies whose attempt at saving themselves had driven them out of the sight and minds of the other remaining Old Races.
None of the other races seemed to have that connotation, though she had no idea what a selkie was.
