Series Information


Cecaelia or Octopus people, is a humanoid species featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. They are sometimes referred to as "sea witches".

Known CecaeliasEdit


Sea witchEdit

Sea witches were witches who appeared among sailors or others involved in seafaring trade. Sea witches used witchcraft related to the moon, tides and the weather, or were believed to have complete control over the seas. 

As the name implies, sea witches are believed to have control over many aspects of nature relating to water, most commonly an ocean or sea. However, in more modern times, sea witches can also practise witchcraft on or near any source of water. 

Sea witches often improvise on what they have, rather than making purchases from a store or from another person. Common tools include clam, scallop, or oyster shells in place of bowls or cauldrons. Other items include seaweed, fishing net, shells, sea grass, driftwood, pieces of seaglass, and even sand.


  • Ursula was able to open a portal below the sea in order to drop the Jolly Roger in Storybrooke, using one of her tentacles.
