Jenny Greenteeth is a water Fey known to drown her victims and sometimes devour them. She is consistently described as having long hair, green skin, and sharp teeth. However, her appearance will vary between that of a child, a winsome beauty, or horrific hag. The theory is that this is to make it easier to lure her prey into the water and then paralyze them with fear. Her favorite prey is young children. Her favorite killing areas are bodies of water where duckweed grows.

Hunts for Jenny are a common occurrence when there have been a number of drownings or missing children in an area. She has not been captured or destroyed since she is a creature of opportunity rather than habit. She remains in spirit form and creates temporary bodies with Glamour only when hunting a victim. She has always vanished when the searchers for her come and then manifests in another body of water.
