Race: Merfolk

Description: Merfolk are a race of aquatic beings whose blue skins are covered with silvery scales. Mermen spend most of their time underwater, where their unique gill systems allow them to extract oxygen from the water in order to stay beneath the surface for hours at a time. Mermen tend to be found in communities located on shallow ocean shelves, or in reef systems. They have vestigal legs and feet, and can move about adequately on land, but they need to return to the water periodically in order to keep their skins from drying out. Mermen are highly intelligent, but they possess no great physical strength, since they are generally accustomed to having a portion of their weight supported by the water. Mermen learn new things very rapidly.
