Catching Fishes by gamera1985 Catching Fishes by gamera1985
Orseis is back!

While mermaids are often said to be sneaky thieves, they are much more prone to find their food by themselves. They might not have real claws, but their skin on their fingers is much like shark skin, which anti-skid ability helps a lot to secure their catches.

Here Orseis is catching fishes with another mermaid tribe: while the one on the upper-left corner is about the same generation of Orseis, while the one on the down-right corner is more than 1500 moon cycles old (more than 120 years old).

Here you can find Orseis' background story: [link]

my idea was that the religion in this world (so let's call it the church) wanted them to wear clothes (considering them equals as humans, so their nudity is a problem). So they ended up making swimsuits for the mermaids...who liked them, as it was warm and save from scratches..

yet, they are'nt believing in the church, unless when some food is at stake XD

hm... you'd think that they would try to make nets out of kelp or use some sort of spear tool to help them catch food easier... ah well, looks very nice and extremely well done!
