Joe's Necessary Evil Game
Atlanteans are an aquatic race that have lived on Earth for hundreds of years, appearing as blue skinned humans with gills. All of them have at least minimal psychic abilities, and many of them have highly developed powers.
Atlantis was been ruled by King Meros, also know as Aquarian to the surface world. King Meros was lost during the K’tharen attack on Atlantis, though rumors persist that he has survived.
Currently, the surviving Atlanteans are refugees as their home city of Atlantis was destroyed and the V’sori regime declared all Atlanteans enemies of the state. They exist in small, scattered communities, hiding in the depths of the ocean. A brave handful explore the surface world disguising their heritage and dodging the V’sori however they can.
Though the occurrences are rare, humans and Atlanteans can interbreed. Their progeny always have the ability to send their thoughts, and more often than not, have a greater incidence of superior psionic powers. Other features of the Atlantean parent—such as Aquatic and blue skin—are not guaranteed to be passed on.
