Siryl
A painting by John Howe of Melusine at her bath, scanned from Forging Dragons.  Melusine or Melusina was a legendary noblewoman in 12th century Brittany who fled her family when it was discovered that she was a fabulous creature who reverted to her natural form when wet.  There are many variations of the story, and of Melusine’s monstrous anatomy.  She usually has the lower body of either a fish or a snake.  Howe’s rendition looks like a compromise between the two.
