Little is known about this Scotish little waterhorse of fae.
It has been so long since humans have had contact with Shopiltees that it is hard to say what aid they might be to us.
But they are likely to look with great kindness and gratitude to anyone who can help repopulate their species.

In Norse Lore, Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi are the Norse horses who pull the chariots of Dagr (day) and Nótt (night).
The names Skinfaxi and Hrímfaxi are bahuvrihis, meaning "shining mane" and "rime mane" (or "frost mane"), respectively. Skinfaxi pulled Dagr's chariot across the sky every day and his mane lit up the sky and the earth below.
The unicorn is a legendary creature usually depicted with the body of a horse, but with a single – usually spiral – horn growing out of its forehead (hence its name – cornus being Latin for 'horn' , uni meaning one).
Strong, wild, and fierce, the Unicorn was impossible to tame by man.
Plinie, the Roman naturalist records it as "a very ferocious beast, similar in the rest of its body to a horse, with the head of a deer, the feet of an elephant, the tail of a boar, a deep, bellowing voice, and a single black horn, two cubits in length, standing out in the middle of its forehead."
It was traditionally believed that a virgin who was naked sitting beneath a tree could only catch the delicate unicorn.
The unicorn, who craves purity, would be irresistably drawn to the girl and lie down with his head in her lap. While it slept, the hunter could capture it. If, however, the girl was merely pretending to be a virgin, the unicorn would tear her apart.
Throughout the stories of the unicorn, its horn, the alicorn, is said to have great medicinal powers.
In Ctesias’ writings, the dust filed from the horn was supposed to protect against deadly diseases if mixed into a potion. Or, if you drank from the horn, you would be protected against any poison...

Chiron is the father of the medical art in Greek mythology, for without him there would be no medicine. It was Chiron, the wise old Centaur, who taught the art of healing to Asclepius and others.
Note: Sagittarius in the picture is the most tantamount Kheiron I still remember from those ancient days...... Kheiron was the wiset Centaur; a fierce warrior and a guru...

The phoenix is a fabulous sacred firebird
(mentioned in the Phoenician legends and the Egyptian and later the Greek mythos)...
The phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor...
According to the Greeks the bird lives in Arabia, nearby a cool well.
Each morning at dawn, it would bathe in the water and sing such a beautiful song, that the sun-god stops his chariot to listen.
The Phenix would feed upon oils of balsalm and frankinsense...
There exists only one phoenix at the time...
