Entities of living, homogeneous water, both fresh and marine, water elementals originate from the extraplanar oceans of the Plane of Water. Most resemble autonomous waves with vague faces and joined to smaller masses of water resembling arms, but it is not uncommon to see one in the shape of an aquatic animal such as a fish.1
