The '''Pincoy''' is a water spirit of the seas in the chilote mythology of Chiloé, Chile. ==Description== The Pincoy is similar to a Merman creature, with a colour bright silver body, a handsome and manly human face adorned with long golden hair, being magically attractive to the women. ==Role== The Pincoy is the son of Millalobo (mythical king of the seas of Chiloé) and the human Huenchula; his sisters, are the Sirena chilota and the Pincoya (which also is his wife). With her sisters, he carried the dead from the sea onto the [[caleuche]]. Moreover, he is responsible for singing a beautiful and strange song, so that the Pincoya start the magical dance, for fertility of the sea. ==References== * Bernardo Quintana Mansilla.
