Banoni the Water Fearing Merman


Known to members of his indigenous Merfolk community as "The Bastard of Sea and Land", Banoni the Water Fearing Merman dares not venture into the open ocean without his trusty life-boat and a host of personal flotation devices to keep him safe from the dreaded water. Moreover, his absent legs keep him near the shoreline when on land, usually begging change from those would linger near his grotesque form. Back on the sea he dares not touch, he lives his pitiful life in a prison of a fear induced semi -aquatic limbo.

Poor Banoni...
