Mythical bestiary Wikia

Cecaelia are beings that are related to merfolk, yet are a little different.


Cecaelia are somewhat similar to their merfolk cousins, however, instead of being part fish, they are part octopus/squid. They tend to have reddish-brown skin and hair, octopus-like eyes, webbed hands, fins/ears, fangs, claws, and tentacles for legs.


Cecaelia, unlike their merfolk cousins, prefer to live simpler lives, maybe tending to their underwater gardens, weaving their seaweed clothes, etc, than searching for jewelry to embellish themselves. They also prefer to live in small stone huts, or underwater caves, than lavish palaces.
