An aquatic species endemic to most coastal waterways. Once one of the most populous races, they have lost their best habitats to human endeavours in the Untisia Strait. Most are now refugees in other distant waters, harbouring a grudge that dates back generations. Even though they prefer the water, they can live on land for days before suffering any ill effects.
They are a curious and kind species that has many footholds and friends across Atala, however their ability to freely navigate the oceans unimpeded has led to their use as spies and lookouts, earning them a (mostly) undeserved reputation as crooks, schemers and liars.
Some say it’s their ability to traverse both the sunken and dry worlds, others that they have spent too long building homes in Verve-rich deep-sea vents, that explains their resistance to magics – but they are one of the few species, along with the mighty chimeron, that can shrug off magics that would otherwise disable most creatures.
