Notes Traits: Water Combat GB pg 29-30. Live in Banthe, Kereneth, Jorkar, and Dashomo Seas. While the mermen most familiar to humans are those born from the union of gods of storm and sea, there are other races, less well known, that dwell entirely beneath the waves and lack any relationship to the air. The kasagath ‘shark-men’ are particularly unpleasant example, warring with their aquatic neighbours almost constantly, although they care little for the dry surface world. They dwell in moderately deep seas, rarely approaching the surface or shallow waters, although only their greatest priests can approach the abyssal depths. Kasagath are vaguely humanoid from the waist up, showing their relation to the Man rune, but their heads are monstrous. They have small fins on their elbows, and a much larger fin on the middle of their backs. Their fingers end in vicious talons, and their wide mouths are full of sharp teeth. From the waist down, they are fully shark-like, and they reproduce in the same manner as those creatures. They have a tough, blackish skin covered with abrasive cuticles. Unlike surface-dwelling mermen, they are unable to breathe air, and have large gill-slits near their shoulders. Kasagath worship hostile deities of the sea, many of them unfamiliar to surface-dwellers. Some tribes have turned wholly to the worship of Chaos, deliberately warping their bodies as signs of their devotion, and destroying even their own kin in constant bloody battles. Anaxial's Annex
