Touched by the Sea

You’ve always felt the call of the sea and your blood surges with the ebb and flow of the tides. Perhaps one of your parents was a sailor or pirate, or maybe one of your ancestors had a bit of aquatic elf or the blood of another aquatic race in them. Whatever the reason, you’re as comfortable in the water as you are on land. You become melancholy when away from the sea too long, and even when in port or ashore you often spend long minutes or hours gazing longingly at the sea when you should be paying more attention to your surroundings.
