Fishy GrandElder by CoffeeAddictedDragon Fishy GrandElder by CoffeeAddictedDragon
Older mers are simply called Elders and are a testament to how successful a pod is. The Elders are highly respected as they have spent many years in the harsh ocean without dying, and as a result, they have learned many secrets and tricks to survival that can be passed onto younger individuals in the pod, allowing said mers to survive to Elderhood themselves and continue to accumulate and pass on survival skills. The amount of Elders in a pod shows how old and successful that pod is. Unsuccessful or newly formed pods have few to no Elders in them.

Elder females are sometimes called Matrons. These Matrons often volunteer to babysit the whelps in the pod so the mother's and fathers can go hunting without worry. Matrons usually are tough grizzly bear like females when it comes to protecting the babies in their charge.

This is a new mer OC sort of. She's an old mer, her breed is Pandora (They look a lot like Betta Fish)

This is an outstanding piece Star! Absolutely terrific! =D I've looked at this awesome pic a few times, but have just noticed Kazul (bottom left), Snowy and Zackorya talking (right) and Liberty. Amazing piece Star. I like the little mer holding her hand. ^^

Hm. Yeah I can see why you say that! They fortunately look similar, but I'm afraid they're not related.

Kazul's 10 years old from her earliest format.

Thanks!

Yeah she is not as old as Kazul but if they would meet there are options:
1 they would fight and not quite like each other. (What is very rare)
2 they would dislike each other then be good friends.
3 they would be great friends quicly (what could actualy happen more)
She has a bit difficult personality due to stresy family life (her parents were not always there for her to cut it exactly but its a long story)
