Kappas are amphibious creatures that have a turtle-like shell on its back with webbed feet and hands. They are greenish in color and are slimy. Kappas also have the distinguishable feature of a bowl-like cap on their heads. Kappas live near ponds and rivers. Kappas need to keep their caps filled with water in order to stay alive, especially if a kappa ventures away from the body of water for some time. Emptying the cap would be equivalent to drowning a human. Kappas are very skilled swimmers, but do not do as well on land. Kappas seem to waddle around on land. Kappas are very polite and bowing down to a kappa will cause a kappa to be bow as well. This will empty their caps, however, but if their cap is refilled before it dies, then that kappa will serve its savior for the rest of its life.
