The Norwegian name for the Nicker. The Nicker was believed to be in the form of an old man with a green beard as well as a Water Horse. Like the Kelpie or Each Uisge the Nicker would dive into deep water carrying anyone who has tried to mount on its back and drown its victims. Nickers also are known to fall in love with women. However the Nykkjen was spotted with a different appearance in 1983. A woman was on the mountainside of the Myrkevaten or dark Lake, in Norway looking for a lost sheep. She stated that she saw the creature move parallel with her. It raised its head revealing its colossal body to be of green colour with a bead on its large head. At this point she fled.
