she usually lives near water in rivers or in flames she can also appear to men in dreams and may leave them impotent for life from water and uses her beauty to seduce men and even kill or drive them insane
Aicha waits for her prey underwater sources and flames, as men approach her who are unfortunate enough to encounter her she kills them, some say that if you ever alone and if you hear the sounds of rusty chains dragging on the ground Aicha is Kadisha is nearby.
