Taking on the appearance of axolotl-seal-dragons, the Syreni are capable of shifting their bodies into 2 primary forms; A terrestrial form, where their side limbs elongate into a more leg-like appearance, enabling them to lumber around a bit awkwardly, somewhat slowly. They are unable to run without the risk of tripping and falling. Preferring their fully aquatic form without legs and swimming with their tails from side-to-side like a shark rather than up-and-down like a whale. They are able to swim in an agile and quick manner, twisting their blubbery bodies similarly to a seal. The process they use to shift their hind limbs from flipper-like to leg-like is called “utsupra factisunt” or - “to become as above” in Latin.
They live off a wide variety of seafood, like fish, crab, jellyfish, squid, kelp, anemone and so on. They are also known to hunt in the snowy land above the water, just about any animal they are able to bring down they will eat and make use of all its pieces.
With the help of crystals frozen in the ground and bottom of the sea, they are able to attune to water, ice, and electric type crystals. Their magic has a wide variety of spells and daily uses - though the most powerful spells require a collective casting/ritual.
Syreni live in palaces carved from snow and ice underwater. Depending on the location, it may be carved from the underside of an iceberg - many of which are carried along the ocean currents like a moving castle. They are also carved from the sides of underwater glaciers, networks of underwater ice caves, or formed from ice made by group magic. Inside the icey palaces, sculptures, carvings, and ornately designed walls, pillars, floors and created by artisans and architects.
The Syreni are ruled by a Royal Family, who live in a palace which is mostly above the water - they are the only to do so.
