Merpeople are a race of intelligent underwater humanoids that inhabit the Great Sea. They appear to wield mysterious power and rule the undersea world with even vodyanoi respecting them. Their language is a sing-song variant of the Elder Speech. It is possible, but not confirmed, that they can summon the dreaded krakens if the need arises.
Merpeople often mistakenly get confused with sirens/nixa: a more vicious type of sea creature. A notable difference though is that sirens have large, bat-like wings while merpeople are far more peaceful and wingless.
Mermaids and mermen are a race resembling a half-human (male or female) with fins and a fish's tail in appearance. The females are similar to nymphs and are very beautiful. They are described as having flowing celadon-green hair, light green skin, and long fish tails covered in scales.
