Water fundamentals bear translucent wings spanning 1 to 2 feet. Tiny droplets of water continually spray from these wet, glistening wings. In bright sunlight, they appear as fantastically beautiful, rainbow-coloured creatures; casting pools of coloured light over the surface of the water as they skim above.
Water fundamentals are often seen flying above, and diving into, large bodies of water. They prefer oceans and deep lakes, but have been found anywhere water is found. Not only do they need water as sustenance, but they must immerse themselves in it for at least one hour per day.

Water fundamentals attack with the same swooping dives as their fiery brethren. Tactically, these water-based creatures tend to charge a target straight on, en masse.
