Thar Be Mermaids

                         Charlotte Ashdene makes a beautiful Mermaid in this series..

 
"Aye. Mermaids. Sea ghouls, devilfish, dreadful in hunger for flesh of man. Mermaid waters, that be our path. Cling to your soul, Gibbs, as mermaids be given to take the rest, to the bone." ―Hector Barbossa to his crew[src]
Mermaids, also known as the merfolk or merpeople and sometimes referred to as Scaly Tails, were legendary aquatic creatures of various legends and lore. Half woman, half fish, they rise up from the waves to lure men into their arms. Beautiful, conniving and dangerous, mermaids would do anything to protect their homes.

Some stories had depicted mermaids as perilous creatures associated with floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drowning. In other folklore (or sometimes within the same folk tradition) they can be benevolent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans. The mermaids of Isla Sirena served as agents of the Sirens, dragging many sailors down to a watery grave. Many mermaids have been known to gather at Whitecap Bay for hundreds of years, thereby striking terror in the heart of all sailors and pirates. Drawn to the surface by man-made light and singing sailors, they entrance their prey before dragging them to the depths to devour them.
