Ah, the tritons. Imagine if the humans spent a few centuries far beneath the sea, where their arrogance and pretension could grow undisturbed.Tritons are the rulers of the ancient seas of Zihæt. Today they can be found ruling their empire, Venúék in the Middle Sea Basin. Tritons have been isolated so long they have a limited understanding of the surface world of Zihæt.
Adapted to even the most extreme ocean depths, Tritons are unaffected by the cold.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
They have the ability to see in darkness, and can breath both air and water.
Civilization and Culture
Most triton names have two or three syllables. Male names typically end with a vowel and the letter s, and female names traditionally end with an n. Tritons use their home protectorate as a surname, with the name formed by adding a vowel followed by a “th” to the end of the protectorate’s name. Female Triton Names: Aryn, Belthyn, Duthyn, Feloren, Otanyn, Shalryn, Vlaryn, Wolyn Male Triton Names: Corus, Delnis, Jhimas, Keros, Molos, Nalos, Vodos, Zunis Triton Surnames: Ahlorsath, Pumanath, Vuuvaxath
Common Dress Code
Well suited to life in the deep, tritons wear little clothing unless armored for battle. They fashion most of their clothes and other items from materials found in the ocean: coral, seaweed, shells, bone, sea urchin spines, the shells of monstrous crustaceans, and so on. Having an old, well-developed civilization, tritons know much of how to refine these materials into garb as rich and weapons as sturdy as any found on land.
