The merfolk are playful, marine-dwelling people. Although wary of surface dwellers, they are not usually hostile: They prefer sunning themselves on rocks to engaging in warfare. Both male and female merfolk decorate themselves with shells, coral, and other underwater adornments.
Adventurers who encounter merfolk are often the victims of pranks and mischief. The sport of merfolk can be cruel, although they are not actually evil. Should surface dwellers do them harm, however, these creatures can be formidable enemies. A merfolk is about 8 feet long from the top of the head to the end of the tail, and weighs about 400 pounds.
Merfolk speak Common and Aquan.
Merfolk live in semi-permanent communities located near choice fishing and hunting areas. They often keep company with porpoises. Surface dwellers who come face to face with merfolk commonly encounter a scouting or hunting patrol.
The merfolk revere the deity Eadro, who created both them and the locathahs.
