While they look quite similar to their land-dwelling cousins, Aquatic Elves have gills that allow them to breath underwater, webbed hands and feet for easier underwater movement, blue and green skin, dark hair, and colored eyes that shine like pearls.

They cherish freedom and personal expression, and it’s quite common for some to live on their own, secluded far away from others. There are also those who feel the need to learn more, and so they decide to venture out into the unknown world.

Adventuring usually means they get into all sorts of situations, interesting but also dangerous, and what they do further dictates how others react when they hear about their deeds, along with the names such as Gimrandlen, Faaloh, and Niesehes.
