Twins, a boy and a girl were born to a human fisherman and a Selkie. The boy was born human. The girl took after her mother and had a coat of sealskin.

After the Selkie left, breaking the fisherman's heart, the father locked away the girl's sealskin coat and tipped it off his boat, sinking it deep into the ocean. He thought to protect his child, to keep her safe with him forever.

The girl and the boy grew older and lived happily for a time. On the girl's sixteenth birthday however, she grew sick and she longed for the sea.

The girl's brother, a fisherman now his father, followed the seals to the spot where the chest lay submerged but before he found the coat... a great storm came and drowned him.

By dawn, the sister had died of her sickness.
