Mermaids are a form of Merfolk that are usually found dwelling in the lakes and oceans of the world. They are known for their fishy tails, human torsos, and overall beauty. They have been known to shift to come onto land but they never stray far from the water. They are known for being competent in both combat and magical arts. They are usually rather friendly to land dwellers.
They are rather balanced between magic and physical strenght and are known for their charm.
While they can leave water and split tail, it's not comfortable in the least.
