A sort of fairy in human form, whose abode is the caverns of rivers. Sometimes these dracs will float like golden cups along a stream to entice women and children bathing, and when they attempt to catch the prize drag them under water. (South of France mythology.)
Belomen qu'yeu fare le Drac Se jamay trebi dins un sac Cinc ô siés milante pistolos Espessos como de redolos.
