A Mishipeshu (Muh-SHEE-puh-SHOH), not to be confused with the Mishipeshu Province which is named after it, is a powerful magical creature. It is the underwater panther or great lynx, which has the body of a large feline, the horns of a deer or bison, upright scales on its back and a long serpentine tail. In Ojibwe magical legend, the Mishipeshu is pitted against the Thunderbird, and this rivalry extends to mages and wizards of these two neighboring provinces. It is said that carrying a copper offering is useful if one encounters a Mishipeshu.
