NOTE: Some parts about this post may become a little strange, rarely for a blog like this where I rarely bring up anything strange. If you are somehow disgusted by the following dialogue, my biggest apologies. I promise this will be the only time I will discuss something that comes close to the miracle of life, unless I must bring it up again.
For how I interpret mythological hybrids (mostly limited to centaurs, nagas/lamias, and of course mermaids/mermen) in my works, mainly in NSFW territory, they should be more realistic to the animals they represent. Besides just looking like they are, they share most, if not all the original traits, including their diets, anatomical structure, and reproduction methods. If the animal it represents has horns, it has horns. If it has a tail, it has a tail. If it has sharp teeth, it has sharp teeth. If it reproduces through eggs, then I'll leave you to imagine the scenario. The only major difference with hybrids is alongside the upper human body, the ability to cumulate better with humans and other types of hybrid species, a trait not usually associated with the animal kingdom.
But before I turn this into a fantasized mammalogy class complete with explicit stuff, hybrids that are based of carnivorous animals, like centaur-lions and nagas, are the nasty faces of these hybrids. While there are friendly varieties that don't choose to eat specific hybrid species, like my own Ziki, these carnivorous hybrids will often attack and eat their victims alive. In the case of females killing and feasting on males, they will "make love" to the male before killing and devouring them. Rarely, the good-hearted female naga may allow the male victim to live, often keeping it as a secret from the rest of the tribe. This whole story also works with the lesser-known male nagas killing a female.
So I've already given you enough stories to vomit to today. After you're finished with the toilet, let's start focusing on mermaids only and the ones that will appear in Aozora's Adventure. Afterwards, I'll say a few last words before I close the post.
Mermaids aren't common in this world, although they do exist. They were more or less creatures brought to Earth due to a very complex European science experiment to bring mythological hybrids into reality by combining genes and DNA with both humans and animals. They created two creatures, a single white mermaid and white merman (as white is supposably every color put together, according to spectrums), and released them into the ocean to mate and spread off offspring through the seven seas. So to sum this up, they were treated as endangered species, and by several months, mermaids and mermen began to grow intelligence and construct underwater cities and temples, and developed basic combat skills to fight off predators of basic fish and other enemies. The mermaids/mermen are not "magic" and thus cannot transform their fish tails into human legs and do the same (or vice versa) to other humans and mermaids. While female mermaids do possess good singing skills, it is not possible for them to sing to distract/lure away/lure to death people.
The main and most well-known mermaid of the series would be this one: Nanami.
The blue and somewhat snooty mermaid was one of the earlier mermaids born from the experiment, with an age equivalent to a 22-year-old healthy human female. She is one of the few high-ranked elite mermaid warriors in the oceans to be a female, and had learned how to move on land by slithering her tail like a snake (yea, don't know if that's a jumping the shark moment, but hey, she can breathe on air since she has the traits of not only fish, but also humans).
Her main weapon is (what a shock) a trident that not only can do basic strikes thanks to its long size and sharpness, but it's also infused with electricity, which allows for heavy powerful strikes. Well this electricity is an alternative kind that doesn't conduct in water (well it does, but it only goes such a distance before it dies down). As you'd expect, she's stronger in aquatic environments because that's where she spends most of her life in.
Strange to think this is the first major mermaid character since after all the ones from my reject of a "franchise" got thrown down the toilet. Well at least this one doesn't look like a Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch knockoff, which I'm proud of myself for giving her so much shite to wear, besides just a shell bra.
Well that's it for now. Hopefully I'll get to writing more bios of the characters on the Wiki, including of the recent ones. As for the previous character in the last post, I'm leaning over to calling him "Vinzenz" (yeah, a German name. Not only the Japanese can think of good names).
