Selkies are able to become human by shedding their seal skins, and can return to seal form by putting it back on.
Stories concerning selkies are generally romantic tragedies. Sometimes the human will not know that their lover is a selkie, and wakes to find them gone. Other times the human will hide the selkie's skin, thus preventing them from returning to seal form.
A selkie can only make contact with one particular human for a short amount of time before they must return to the sea. They are not able to make contact with that human again for seven years, unless the human steals their selkie's skin and hides or burns it.

The Moonlight Selkie has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items as ghost loot:
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the moonlight selkie may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in the list above.
If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the moonlight selkie. Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.
Mockery stat drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:
A standard loot drop of a mocktail 5x Cherry bomb A mockery stat caused] loot drop of a mocktail 5 Devil driver
Vintage connoisseur loot
If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops from the moonlight selkie. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.
Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:
16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
If you want to attract a moonlight selkie, use any of the Nessy's family of bait (Nessy's Golden Reserve, Nessy's platinum edition, or Nessy's supreme edition) or Shadetouch purple, Shadetouch green, or Shadetouch blue as bait.
Using these baits is not a guarantee that you will attract a moonlight selkie, but except for a few very rare occasions, these baits are the only bait that attracts them at all.
(Note: Shadetouch orange does not have the same ability to attract a moonlight selkie as the other members of the Shadetouch family.)
The Moonlight Selkie's non-midnight counterpart is the Selkie.
