red.

Name: Eek
Gender: Male
Age:15 (I am not sure as to how long merfolk live so i jsut(just) guestimated(estimated) they live half a human's life of 30 years)
Race: Merfolk
Tribe: None
Title: Merman
Occupation: None

Appearance
Height: 1 Ped, 2 Fores, 1 Palmspan, 6 Nailsbreadths
Weight: 1 Pygge, 3 Hebs, 1 Hafeb, 1 Od
Hair Color: Blue
Eye Color: Blue

Physical Appearance
Eek being a merman is human from the waist up and fish from the waist down. He has blue hair and has blue eyes that some say peer right into the soul. His scales are also blue giving him good camouflage in the water and can only be seen because of his upper body. His arms are muscular as is his tail with can do harmful damage to bigger things, when he fishes he uses his razor sharp talons as fingers and grabs the fish.

Clothing
Eek wears no clothing but has a bracelet made out of seaweed that he wears all the time. He also has some more seaweed tied loosely on his arm sometimes as something to eat if he gets hungry and can’t get any fish.

Personality
Eek is much like every merfolk; he enjoys playing with the whales and likes bright shiny objects. He keeps a few red, orange, and yellow things around attached to his bracelet and are usually replaced every few sleeps. He gets these things from sailors, in exchange for weather, which he can feel coming better than most, and fishing spots(Human's can't understand mermish.). He sees these sailors as one of his kind that has some how found a way to get rid of their tail and grow a pair of legs, not fully understanding the world around him.

Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
-Better than most merfolk at predicting the weather and can guess how long it will be before it reaches his area (a sleep away, half sleep, or quarter sleep away is how he describes it) good for getting to a safe area if it is going to be a bad storm or for getting shiny objects from sailors.
-Talons, good for fishing and can do deadly damage if he finds himself in a situation to use them.
-Tail, Can do harmful damage against larger creatures if it comes to that.

Weaknesses
-Unintelligent, he does not think deeply into things and if he tried he would not understand most things.
-Short memory, can not remember things past a few sleeps ago.
-Split tailfin, one of his tail fins has been cut down the middle and this affects his swimming. He was caught once and he escaped out of the net he was caught in and one of the sailors drew his sword to try and stop him and missed him but hit his tail splitting it in half, he does not remember this though he is aware of his fin.

History
When he was born he started swimming right away and swam with his mother for a few moments. Then she went one way and he went the other, a short swim away was a mother whale and her baby. Eek played with the baby a while and just stayed with the mother since her baby did.

He stayed with that baby until he was 5 years old(That is a very long time. He would have forgotten that the whale is his playmate by that time.), at which point he was pretty much ready to live on his own. It was about a year later when he was caught in a fishing net and was pulled aboard with all the other fish. He escaped and one man drew his sword in an attempt to stop him. Eek slapped him with his tail and went for the edge of the boat. The man, angered by Eek slapping him, sliced with the sword with connected with his tail and cut one of the fins down the middle. He plundged back into the water and swam as fast as he could away from the boat.(Eek would not know that the man intended to harm him. Merfolks are dumb, they need some signs to tell them that they are being attavked.)

At the age of ten he started to talk to sailors again but stayed in the water(see comment about mermish.). He told one group that a bad storm was coming in soon and they should be moving away from the area(Normal humans can't understand mermish.). The sailors took his advice and started to leave the area, but first he(they) gave Eek a shiny red peice of metal. Eek especially like this color and continued to like it ever since. The sailors got to shore and looked back out to sea, in the distance moving quickly was a large dark cloud, lit up for a moment by a flash of lighting. The were thankful that the Eek had come up to tell them this storm was coming otherwise they would have still been out there.

Now at the age of 15, Eek continues to enjoy life playing with the whales, recieving red, orange, and yellow shiny things fromn(from) sailors, and eating any fish he can catch. As far as he knows he will be doing this the rest of his life, but he does not think to(too) much into the future about what he will be doing.

Weapons
Eek only has his tail and his sharp talons as weapons though he can be very skilled at them they are no match for sailor’s swords and other weapons.(Not so. Sailor's swords are made out of metal. Fishtails and and merfolk talons are not.)

Belongings
His only belonging is his seaweed bracelet that he attaches his newest shiny thing to.

Have a nice day.

It's up to you Thorg. My approval does still stand. But it's also up to Eek as to whether or not he wants to edit according to your comments. I've never had this happen before; I would have respected your comments had we not been posting at the same time.

wow Thorgas you didn't type that welcome to Santharia thing or anything just "red". Or did you do that because you already said that to me with Ganinon?

Anyway jsut thought i would say a couple things about your Uri.
1)How would merfolk tell of fishing spots or weather if the sailors couldn't understand mermish?
2)in weapons i said that his tail and talons were no match for Sailors swords or other weapons.
3)The sailor drew a sword against Eek so isn't that a clue that he was hostile?
And 4)I believe as long as he kept with the whales every day then he would still remember the few sleeps ago where he was with them, though he would forget how he first met them.

Stupid immature people in this board forced me to be less friendly, and from now on I'm taking a neutral stance towards others. Not to worry though, your cool.

1. Some veteran sailors can, if they spent a lot of time in the water. Merfolk can also tell others by their movements, like pointing to a direction of fishing grounds and moving wildly in the water if a storm is coming. I would not suggest that Eek should lead them; he might forget what he is doing.

2. I must have missed that.

3. No, thei will view that sword as something shiny. After they got harmed by the sword, then that's the time that he'll realized the danger.

4. They forget easily.

Have a nice day.

Sorry to hear about all those annoying newbies. If someone(or myself eventully) makes a ocean story then i will request that one sailor be seasoned enough to understand mermish to make it easier on the whole.
