Lore: Jenny Greenteeth lies in wait in bodies of water in England, waiting for children to wander too close to the water's edge. When a victim wanders too close to the water's edge, Jenny Greenteeth lunges and drags the poor soul down into the depths of the water where she drowns and devours them.

Powers: Unknown

Defense Against Jenny Greenteeth: Stay away from the water's edge.
