If Beauty’s mother is a combination of Selkies and Swan Maidens then is she like a new fictional species or something?

In the original draft what she was was never really defined. I just did a lot of shapeshifter imagery with her and was going to leave it sort of open. But, as the story has developed, and as you have to handle things differently in comics than in prose, I decided it would make the most sense to just have her be a Swan Maiden.
