Javanese mermaid queen Nyi Roro Kidul is tied in with many of the royals in Javas history, and is considered the Queen of the South Sea. She is known to lure handsome young men into the sea from fishing boats or even the beach. She is aqua green in color, and it is part of local beliefs that aqua green is a sacred color, and that wearing this color will anger her.
