The fish-woman

Across the water a frightening monster approaches them, intent on destroying the ship. It is a half-fish, half-woman, and has bristly hair all over its body. For a long time it circles the ship. Brendan tells his monks that God will protect them. Finally the monster disappears into the depths of the sea.

-- “The Voyage of St. Brendan”
