Swimming past a coral reef is a gorgeous creature. She has the torso of a human female and a long tail like a fish. This is the mermaid princess, one of the many daughters of the Merfolk King. They are part of the merfolk community under the sea.

Precocious Princess. Mermaids are usually quite self-absorbed and egocentric. However, they are also usually very curious and are especially interested in those creatures that live on land.

Under the Sea. These beautiful merfolk usually live inside underwater castles or caves deep beneath the waves. They make jewelry and tools out of shells and bones.

Loyal Companions. Mermaids often have sea creatures as close companions. Dolphins, seals, crabs, and other beasts often befriend them.
