Merperson in this world I'm currently trying to create.
Merpeople: Water Elementals. Generally merpeople have pale blue, green or purple skin, though warm colors are not unheard of. Most have the ability to mesmerize creatures with their voice either for entertainment or hunting. All merpeople are carnivores. Never call a merperson a fish-man or a fish-woman. It is an incorrect and derogatory term reserved for true fish-animans which are a crossbreed of humans and fish that often results in odd deformities.
