The Mer Species of Sovereign Mers by CoffeeAddictedDragon The Mer Species of Sovereign Mers by CoffeeAddictedDragon
NOTE: Any facts stated above are subject to change as the world and lore progresses in growth.

DOUBLE NOTE: Sorry for my hand writing and the spelling errors... I looked over it after it was too late and cringed... It look's like a 5 year old wrote this... >.<


VWALLA! I'm fairly happy how this came out, though I wish there was a sepia option on my art program... I'll see if I can find on somewhere on my computer and then maybe update this later with that. ^^

A glimpse into the world of mers eh? ^^


(Note: Yes I know in legend, Selkies are seals that can shed their seal skin and become human and then vice versa when the sea calls to them again, but how does someone make that scientific and realistic? Thus these combos of human/seal are made. I'm having fun fleshing out each of these creatures biology. ^^

Well the sovereign mers can be made since they are more or less an open species, though there are many guidlines that need to be followed. All the others are currently closed.

hello! I'm here with more questions. I swear somewhere you've mentioned that some people keep mers as pets. Do you need any qualifications for that?

In most places in the world, you need to have very VERY specific qualifications to own one. Even then, Sovereign Mers are rarely auctioned to become pets, rather more like companions. Other species of mer like the octomer or even the Naiad are more eligable to become pets since they are more primitive.

Was thinking of making a new Octopus character and wanted to see if they are available yet.
Might try and make my own that isnt an octomer. Or I might wait till they are available. =)

What happened to the poor octomers to make them endangered?  I'd wagere the Kapd's looks were its reason for extinction.

superpower-pnut Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2017
I figure the specter of the human belief that 'not pretty=evil' had a role too..

Are octomers smallish?  In other words, do you need to be super wealthy (what is this $20 of which you speak?), wealthy (let's take the Tomahawk to the airport so I can avoid seeing the poor), or upper middle class (my kid's upset because I gave him last year's model iphone) to own one?

"Selkies are seals that can shed their seal skin and become human and then vice versa when the sea calls to them again, but how does someone make that scientific and realistic? " 
Ever saw Song of the sea eue? I like it. Plus its really cute and smoothly animated :0 It's got this young girl who cant speak unless she has this pure white coat. And in a light when in the water, she becomes a white seal, but the same way, or obscured by waves mainly, she becomes human again, her coat still on her body. 

Beautiful proportions btw :0 love the species~

Ive heard of song of the sea.

What I mean is how do scientifically explain a human becoming a seal and vice versa. In the Sovereign Mers world, everything is scientific, there is no magic. So I had to improvize and. put my own spin on it.

Thank you! ^^
