Naeni


Appearance


Naeni are the amphibians of Elyssia, they are just as comfortable on land as they are in the water and appear to be able to survive both in fresh water and salt water. They somewhat resemble humans in that they are about the same height, have 2 arms and legs and a head. There the resemblance ends, their skin is lightly scaled like a fish, they have gills on their necks, webbed fingers and toes, fins on their legs and a dorsal fin on their back. Their heads are best described as being somewhere between frog-like and fish-like with wide mouths and large eyes, no hair and small ears. Typically their skin ranges from brown to green to blue hues, but contrary to their appearance is usually dry even after emerging from the water. Additionally Naeni are capable of changing their gender at will, although this doesn't reflect on their appearance.



History


The Naeni are another race that like the Yulosi have seen something beyond the Great Storm, although rather than looking over they have looked under and what they have seen and have reported back to the council has been disappointing. The storm cloud itself does not extend beneath the waters, but immensely strong currents do, the water moves so swiftly immediately under the storm that it is visible, although somewhat unusually for such a current the water on the "safe" side is not affected at all by that current. The Naeni themselves keep mostly to their underwater cities, coming to the surface to trade and interact with the other races for mostly social reasons, however they reveal little of their architecture or history to outsiders, but are otherwise very friendly. They are responsible for saving many of the other races during the early days of the Great Storm and have reported to the Council the presence of a number of odd metal vessels underwater, too heavy to salvage and unclear of the purpose, the sea water has corrupted much of the insides too leaving it uncertain how old these wreckages actually are although the Naeni state they believe them to be very old.



Society


The Naeni keep what they see as being a practical rulership which mostly involves the "leader" being whoever is best at the situation at hand nominated by a committee of peers and as such the leader is regularly changing. They keep to loose family groups and open social circles. Several Naeni may have several wives or husbands as is their choice and tend to form relationships that confuse the races that lean towards life partnerships. Much like the Ferritans they have little concept of personal ownership of objects or people, however unlike the Ferritans this does not extend beyond their own race and they treat anything that is not immediately within their domain, namely underwater, as not theirs.
