Second or third generation Merrowborn
They are generally the same size as humans.
Merrow Tale (2012) - B.A. Lee
While the youthful Merrowborn often delight in the sport of waylaying and
devouring oceangoing humans, the elders are not without a certain degree of sophistication and
even culture. The gentleman pictured here greatly assisted me in my research, and it was he who
introduced me to the Star Spawn Watcher who so greatly assisted in the translation of this text.
Thomas Mullen was not pure Merrow, and told me that at very least his mother had been
completely human. As such, his progression towards the shocking appearance of his pure
Merrow brethren was tempered, and perhaps he would never resemble them completely.
Successive generations of Merrowborn would dilute this mutation even further, and he informed
me that some of his great-great-grandchildren could pass for human, if you were inclined to
ignore some minor gills and webbing.
Similar to true Merrow, Merrowborn are very long lived. Thomas regaled me with tales of his
youth, when he and his brethren would torment British, then American ships as they passed
through the area early in the nineteenth century.
