Sea god Ekke Nekkepenn has his eye on Inge van Rantum, a beautiful girl from the German island of Sylt. He dresses up as a sailor and gives Inge a ring and a necklace. When she accepts it, he says, “Now I have you, now you are my bride.” Inge is startled and begs to release her. Ekke promises that she can avoid a marriage if she comes back the next evening and can guess his name. Failing that, she will become his wife forever.
The story of Ekke Nekkepenn is reminiscent of the fairy tale Rumplestiltskin. Inge also eventually discovers the name of Ekke Nekkepenn. Furious, Ekke disappears into the sea and stirs up a devastating storm.
