    As a good amount of you maybe certainly know, I’ve currently got an ongoing plot with one of my characters, Xavier.

    Here’s the kind of gist of things. Xavier did a prank on a demon, prank went wrong, things kinda fell apart fast, Xavier almost drowned but then reappeared a few days later as a merman. Overall hasn’t been a great time for him.
    This idea involves the creation of a new character who is a mermaid/merman. Specifically, the same kind that Xavier is.

    As said above, this character would be a mermaid/merman. However, the character may not necessarily have been born a mermaid/merman. As with Xavier, he used to be a human then became a merman. When one becomes a mermaid/merman, it overrides the previous species. The species idea I liked the most the character had prior was demon as it would have some interesting ties to the current plots with Xavier.

    Then there’s the question of abilities. Generally, mermaid/merman abilities would be okay. But, this version of mermaid/merman is not supposed to really be beneficial to someone who wants to stay more on land (other than a certain case). There is a requirement to be fully submerged in water, generally some kind of singing ability, good movement in the water, and shifting only possible with a human shape charm. This is more of a guideline. If a character had abilities prior to being changed, they may keep some, Most or even all of their previous abilities.

    Personality and background wise this can be up to you. But I will say, with the conversion to mermaid/merman, after a year the person will experience complete memory loss. This character is kinda intended to have already gone through this and be fully developed ability wise. When one has the memory loss, they will gain one of two abilities. One is the ability to shift into a human form, and the other is to turn others into the same kind of mermaid/merman. It’s up to you which is acquired.

    Plot wise, they could get pretty involved with Xavier as a friend and almost like a mentor to help him with the whole thing he’s going through.
    Feel free to message here or DM (on site or discord) if you’re interested in it!

    Small bump, did a small clarification about what I meant on the character not really being able to shift.
