Shamaris Merchibis are little male versions of mermaids. =] Sometimes also female, according to my mood. ^.^;; They are like human children/teens in temperament and behaviour.

Some look fairly mature, like Shamaris <--, and some look very immature. This is because the term 'merchibi' spans the 2-year period in a mer's life when he rapidly grows from a tiny chibichibimer (4-year period) to adult.

The mer diet is largely made up of various seaweed (or water weed for freshwater mers), but includes fish when in seasons of abundance, as well as shellfish and other seafood.

adoption rules:
  • Have your merchibi named (follow naming rules below) and settled on a page within 2 weeks. Be sure to let Jaysen know.
  • Your merchibi's page should only house critters from aikousha, and preferably only merchibis (since they have a unique habitat).
  • Your merchibi page should have a legible link to aikousha at

    Merchibi names must include one of the following phrases adapted from Latin:

    ae (e.g. Aelae)
    Keveho aqua     estus
    fluo       fons
    lambo    mare
