The Mermanites are a sapient race of mermaid-like creatures that inhabit the Sea of Tranquility on the planet Sagar.
Biology[edit | edit source]
The Mermanites are sea-dwelling creatures with a humanoid upper body and an ichthyoid tail. They have greenish skin and pointed ears, and their tails are pale-green. Males are completely bald, while females possess dark green hair. Their diet includes fruits and nuts, which they acquire from land-based allies, like the Trobbits.
Culture and society[edit | edit source]
Mermanites wear golden bracelets and necklaces, and the adult females cover their breasts with sea shells. Children wear loose and softer necklaces and no bracelets. They're a peaceful people ruled by a queen, and are allies of the Trobbits and John Blackstar. The Mermanite queen is the only one that wears Human-like clothes, as well as a crown on her head, instead of a necklace.
