Merfolk of Anora

INTRODUCTION SECTION
Long before Anora came to be, before the joining of the nations, domains, and races. Each race lived separate lives, in different realms among their own kind. Among those species of the Merfolk, before the war and creation of Anora they lived, ruled, and flourished in the seven seas.  Each of the seven seas had their own races of Merfolk, and each lived by their own laws. Though the different races intertwined often with one another, each knew to respect the other’s ocean. It was an unspoken rule, a common courtesy among the different nations. A rule, that helped the Merfolk thrive and survive in the ever changing life of the oceans around them.

Merfolk rarely if ever made their way to the surface of the humans, living instead in secrecy amongst themselves, for the safety of their kind. Each leader though had their own way of keeping tabs on the surface world, just in case something from above would threaten their livelihood below, each was linked with a different magical creature or race from above, thus the Merfolk were well liked and respected among the magical world that thrived above them. It was this connection, that alerted each nation to the war that brewed above, and it was this connection that caused the seven seas to come together as one, to fight in this war.

The great leaders of each realm joining forces with the leaders of the other races that made up the magical community they all lived in. No one could have guessed, would have known the cost that came with taking part in the war. What was once a peaceful world that lived and worked as one regardless of the magical or the mundane became a battlefield of blood and sorrow. When the leaders saw that the lives of the magical beings had indeed dwindled in sizes, and the lives of so many were at stake, they banned together to create a new world. A world safe from the prying, threatening eyes of the humans who could no longer understand, or refused to believe that not everything in their world had to make sense. Thus, Anora was created, and this is the place that the nations of the Merfolk now call home. Not every race, nor every nation survived such an attack on their kind. Many saw their numbers so small, that they had no choice but to join together with the race of another nation. Out of those nations formed new bonds, new races, and new abilities the Merfolk didn’t know they had ever possessed.

Come with me into Anora and discover what new races and abilities have developed throughout the different realms of the remaining Merfolk that make up this new and magical world.

The Mirrored Sea

The reflection of the sun off the beautiful ocean waves, gives this unique Sea its name. The Merfolk that inhabit these waters, are as beautiful as the Sea itself.


 
The Merfolk of The Mirrored Sea

The Merfolk of this sea, have powers indicated by the name of their home waters. Thus why they are called The Mirrored Merfolk. The pictures above are used in reference to what a Merfolk of this region looks like when not tapping into the abilities granted them by the sea they abide in. Their tales, like that of the sea have a mirrored look. Though these Merfolk are beautiful, with a friendly demeanor and tend to help the creatures of the ocean, when provoked, prodded, or faced with a challenge they are not to be messed with. Before Anora came to be, The Mirrored Race was not actually around. The Mirrored was born after the great war that brought Anora into what it is today. With the war, many Merfolk and their homes were destroyed, and many of the races dwindled in size leaving most with very little of their kind left, or even wiping out a race altogether. When Anora was created, it was decided that the races left would merge together into different regions, and rebuild what was left of the Merfolk. Creating new abilities, strengths, and weaknesses among the Merfolk. And, that is why Anora has the Merfolk of The Mirrored Sea today.

Abilities:  In the waters the mirrored can change the shape, size, color, and form of their tails to match the surrounding creatures of the ocean. When a mirrored wants to venture onto land, they can take on the form, and race of another they come into contact with. (ex: They can become a hume just by coming into contact with a hume.) Their mirrored abilities also allows them to create a mirage, a trick of the mind, or even a clone of themselves. Though, this ability is mostly used in battles and wars, it is rarely seen outside of these circumstances. Can Be on land for a max of 3 days at a time.

Strengths: Can communicate with the wildlife of the ocean & works well with them in hunting, defending, or living together in the vast ocean. They work well with the Merfolk of The Charmed Deep. Their abilities in battle, and in life give them a strong bond among the two races, as they compliment each other very well. Because of who they are as a race, they adapt easily to the ways of the other races around them and can blend into a different setting without much effort.

Weaknesses: The ability to mirror that of another creature in the oceans depths is limited to only their ocean. They can only mirror another creature for a max of seventy-two hours before their tail is returned to its original state. When on land with other races, they must return to the water every three days for a max of one week before they can return to land again. While recovering from their time on land, they are almost comatose because they have been out of the water and away from their original form for so long.  

Relationships: The Charmed Deep Merfolk
                         The Sun Elves

The Charmed Deep

The Merfolk of The Charmed Deep

As the name implies, the ocean and the race that live with in its waters are indeed the charming type. They are a sweet race of Merfolk to happen upon, but deadly if you get on the wrong side of their emotions. The Merfolk of the charmed deep are a great ally in times of war, and love. Inhabiting the Crystalline Island, they have become both feared and respected by the other races that call this Island of Anora home. Like the others of their kind, they were merged together of different races after the war that brought Anora to life, and have adapted to survive on and in the climate and region of the Island they live on. They are charming in the way that their beauty is unlike any other Merfolk of Anora. Their calm demeanor and gentle ways make them a favorite among the Islands of Anora. Their musical voices are like satin to the skin. Soft and gentle to the ears, and beautiful to the soul. They strive to help the people of Anora to find the happiness they have been granted in this world.

Abilities: They can charm any race of being, and any animal either outside of or within the waters of the oceans. (This is not confined to their body of water only) They can charm with beautiful music. They have the ability to charm another into loving them, or fighting for them. When they charm an animal it is usually for a bigger task they have at hand. When they charm a being of another race, it is either for protection of themselves, or for the help of another. Very rarely do they use their abilities to harm the lives of all those that live on and call Anora home. When having a charm activated on another, they are able to see things through the eyes of that animal or being. Because of their charming ways, they are easily able to tell when two people are soulmates meant to be together, and because of their nature to find happiness for those around them, will do whatever means necessary to bring those two together. Because of this, many people seek them out for help when they feel all other hope is lost. They also have the ability to be on land, though how this is accomplished is something of a mystery. They can be on land in human form for up to four days at a time.

Weaknesses: Because of the cold nature of the Island they inhabit, they do not travel very often even when taking a human form. Their waters are much colder than that of their sister Islands, so it rare to find one of the Charmed Deep in another ocean. When in human form, the ability to charm is not as strong as when they are in their natural form. When their time on land is up, they must return to the waters of their home Island to recoup their spent energy, their recovery time is a full four days. While they recover their abilities to charm are at zero percent.
