“The Kappa is a magical creature that inhabits ponds and rivers. Considered to be a Water Deity, it is known to use its powers for both good and mischievous purposes.
All Kappa have a small pool of water on top of their heads; they must keep this filled at all times otherwise they will lose their power and may possibly die. Rumor has it, that if you help refill the water atop a Kappa’s head, they will be eternally grateful and will be a helpful friend for life.
Luckily this smart little Kappa always carries extra water in his trusty canteen!"
