Quick Facts: The Klabautermann, a Northern German water goblin

klabauter

by Týra Alrune Sahsnotasvriunt

A Klabautermann (from low German “klabastern” – “to rumble”) is a kind of water or ship goblin who assists sailors and fishermen on the North and Baltic Sea and saves sailors washed aboard.
He is approximately one foot (30cm) tall, dressed in sea-green or blue  and a red woollen sailor’s cap, often wearing a caulking hammer and/or a pipe.
Klabautermänner are joyful and eager creatures with an expert understanding of all watercrafts, they live to serve, but also like to play pranks on those they serve and bless with their protection.
They also are quite skilled musicians and singers and as long as you hear your Klabautermann singing onboard, even during a heavy storm, you know your ship is safe.
Sailors better hope never to set eyes on the Klabauter though; he only shows himself to sailors and crews doomed to die.
