Marni Walsh, originally, was a student studying ancient Egyptian. Growing up, she became fascinated with the stories of the Ancient Egyptian, thanks to popular culture in movies and books. While studying for her Bachelor degree in Ancient Egyptian, she was selected for a study abroad program to Ancient Egypt, to assist with another newly discovered sunken ancient Egyptian sunken city. She was selected due to her high marks in her grades, as well as already being a certified diver. They needed students to help
The Lost Goddess
During an expedition, her team discovered a buried temple that collapsed during the sinking of the ancient city. It turns out that the temple was built dedicated to an undiscovered Egyptian goddess, Anutkathys, the lost daughter of Tefnut. It turns out that Anutkaythys was to be Goddess of the sea, specifically a goddess that would watch over the sea, and guide the ancient Egyptian Sailor back home after the long voyage. At least, that was what Marni theorized as they worked through the ruin.
As her team excavated through the ruined temple, Marni discovered an intact chamber. Within a chamber is where Marni would make a major discovery: a sarcaophagus. It was also when she made a move that would change her life... Overwhelmed with curiosity, she opened the sarcaphagus, and to her surprised, she saw a young woman resting in it. Before Marni could even react, the young woman opened her eyes and reached out to Marni's face. She grinned at her, speaking in a language Marni did not recognized, she then disintegrated into dust.
Marni didn't have to wait at all for what was about to happen next. She found herself enshrouded in a bright blue glow, in which her body changed. She watched her own clothings and diving gears getting destroyed as her legs changed into a long black and gold mermaid tail. During the transformation, her skin tone took on a slightly darker shade, with her hair colour changing from blonde to black, and her ears became replaced with cat ears. Marni Walsh 'died' as she and the lost goddess fused together into a new incarnation: Marni Anutkathys.
In the aftermath of the fusion, Marni woke up in her new body, and a rather revealing outfit with just her blue and gold 'bra', which connected to her new golden choker around her neck. Marni was still very much 'herself' only with the knowledge of the the Goddess. She heard her new 'co-inhabitant' the young goddess herself, and spoke to her...
"I am Anutkaythys, daughter of Tefnut.... for almost my entire life.. I've been forced to slumber when my temple fell.. I chose you to be my vessel to simply...live and experience the world, as I was denied to do so. I have sacrificed all of my powers to allow our two bodies to merge as one being. Everything I know, is yours to know.. all I ask.. is to let me see the world."
Even though that Marni is now a mermaid, she is able to gain legs, when out of water. However, her physical body remains the same, including her cat-like ear. She must now figure out how she can continue her old 'life' in her new drastically transformed body. Only downside is, her hair will occsionally 'drip' black liquid, and will always appear wet. Therefore, she tends to spend most of her time in sea.
Her Eel Pet
During her time in the ocean, she attracted a new friend.. an Eel, which started to follow her around. Refusing to leave her side, she named her new friend 'Anubis' after one of her favourite gods.
Marni belongs to me.
