Introduction

MAZIAH ISLAND!

Image
Image

20 YEARS AGO...

A flashing red alert light appeared on a phone reciever in the head office of the government institute, a sign meaning urgent information. The big boss' lazy eyes lumbered over to it and he reached a chubby hand out to the phone, lifting it to his ear, nose up high and nostrils flaring. "What is it?" He asked in a heavy baritone voice.

"You would never believe it! We may be on the verge of something spectacular! Some-some-something AMAZING! It's beyond what we could ever DREAM of happening! Oh God, oh lord, it-it-it could be the start of a brand new era!" The big wig holding the phone tightly pulled it away from his ear a little, still able to hear the excitable rants of the excitable man down the other side of the phone, pinching his temples with his free hand and rubbing them slowly. I always have to work with the crazies...

"What is it now?"

"MERMAIDS! WE-WE FOUND A MERMAID!"

At this information, the wide man's narrow eyes became enlarged in shock. Maybe this was their big break through. This segment, the segment of the government based around searching for the supernatural, it hadn't managed to find any proof, ever. Maybe this was it. Their moment! "Where? How? When?! Oh this is marvelous news! You must bring her back to base immediately!"

The other end of the phone fell silent for a moment before he heard a nervous cough. "Aha, yes, bring her back..." The big wig's excitement slowly fell. "Well, we kinda got overexcited, and... she swam away... got scared... Sorry boss, but it was just something we hadn't expected. We never thought we'd actually find one."

The big wig blinked a couple of times, before sighing and falling back into his large leather chair, closing his eyes. "Well, it looks like I'll need to send some more qualified people out to this island. There must be more nearby. Where are you destinated again?"

"Maziah island."

"Maziah island..." The big wig nodded and then sat up. "Well, we'll need to send out nets, tracking gear and diving tanks. All we need is one mermaid. One mermaid is all we need. Even if we need to break it's tail and limbs in order to get it contained."

"Break its tail?! Oh no, we-we can't! We can't damage something so delicate-"

"This no longer has anything to do with you. You failed, it is no longer your job to find them." The large man put the phone down and breathed heavily, before, with a struggle, got to his feet and slumped towards the door. "I need to find my best specialists... I'm not letting this one go."

***************

This is exactly what happened, traced back in history, after four specialists were sent out (Two couples) told to capture the mermaids as soon as they found them. The team got to work at finding the mermaids in question, investigations seeming to go nowhere as the merfolk seemed to stay away from the surface, therefore keeping out of sight of the humans. This didn't do wonders for government research.

However, the team soon began to enjoy living on Maziah island, and built more hospitable home for themselves, building beach-shack way above the ocean shore

Image

Here the two couples have built their own families, though it doesn't seem like two seperate families. Merely one big family with two mothers and two fathers. There are now four children, knowing the ways of the island and not knowing it any other way. They have no internet and basically a radio and books to read, sketches to be drawn, and other such things to entertain themselves. The main way to entertain, is the water. Surfing, swimming, diving, discovering underwater artifacts, collecting shells and so much more. It seems their means of catching merfolk is far forgotten. They've come to accept the facts that they do not exist.

Ha. Won't it be a surprise when their kids discover them...

***************

So here's the dealio, Kids knowing that their parents are a part of a government institute is nada. Therefore,
When kids discover them, Fantastical discovery!
When adults discover them, call up the government troops and mermaids are trapped in nets and sent back to the institute for dissecting. Comprende?

The families are made up of one mother, one father, one son, and one daughter. Girl 1 goes with boy 1 and Father 1 and Mother 1 etc. etc. It doesn't really matter about the merfolk if they're related or not. BUT! Please only claim 1 character.

"Y-Yeah... I know..." Gilidian let out a small breath, closing his eyes and then trying to stop his constant shakes and get the goosebumps to go away. However, after a moment he managed to smile a little. "I don't think that they're as bad as our parents think they are." Gil looked over towards the direction of the surface and then back to Rina. "I mean, up there, they use those weird things-" he gestured downwards as if trying to indicate the legs, "And it's terribly hard to move your tail. But, they.... They helped me. The humans helped." he said it, knowing it was as big a shock to him than anyone else. He felt a heavy tiredness linger on him and rubbed at his eyes to keep himself awake. He was still smiling a little, but felt like he could crash out at any minute. "Are you okay Rina?" he asked after a moments silence. "Nothing got you, did it?"

Marina looked at Gil making sure he was ok. She could see him shaking, but the second shesaw him smile she could see that he was just fine. "I don't think that they're as bad as our parents think they are." That was crazy. She raised an eyebrow and looked at him like he was crazy. "I mean, up there, they use those weird things--And it's terribly hard to move your tail. But, they.... They helped me. The humans helped." No, this was crazy. Why would humans of all things try to help them. They knew nothing about Gil yet, the humans so called "helped" him? Rina wasn't buying it, bt she could tell he was tired and she wasn't about to add to that load. "Are you okay Rina?" She smiled and put a piece of hair behind her ear. He was the one that met humans yet he was still asking if she was ok. "I'm fine." She said put her arms back to her sides. "Nothing got you, did it?" She shook her head. "No, nothing got me. Look I have a lot to ask you but you seem exhausted." She put her hand on his back and looked at him. "Lets get back home before our parents gets worried."

Gil didn't really want to go home. It seemed they had discovered somethig that only one other mermaid claimed to see, and they weren't crazy, or dreaming. That was proved simply by the fact that Rinawas there with him and he was there wih Rina. He gave a gentle nod and then looked up to her. "Rina, we can't tell anyone about this. We need to keep it to ourselves." he bit his lip and began swimming towards town. "If other merfolk were to find them, they could drown them..." Gil yawned a little but paused and waited for Rina to join him in swimming back home.

Liam climbed onto a nearby rock and jumped off after sticking the breather in his mouth. He hadn't been too concerned with chasing after the dolphins. Instead he stayed with his sister around the reefs with the colourful fish. He could see Reyton swimming deeper into the water, he wanted to call out to her to stop but the breathing devices weren't the best for talking with. After a while he didn't see her any more. This made him worry a little bit, after another few minutes he saw common up on the surface above them. Curious, he nudged his sister and then kicked himself up to the surface. Once his head was out he removed the breather and swam to the shore. He could tell that the siblings were arguing again and he didn't want to interrupt, or well he didn't want to be stuck in the middle of it at least.
