From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Native to the Interstitial plane of Baoighre, merrow are fishlike humanoids capable of significant swimming speeds, breathing water, and projecting their voice in a "song" capable of injuring and destroying only what they wish. They have been known to occasionally form marriage-like bonds with humans or other merrow, in both cases being able to produce fertile offspring via live birth, with the former resulting in the birth of a half-merrow. Due to their magical nature, merrow birth comes with almost none of the risk of human birth. Half-merrow children can often be picked out by their flowing, blueish locks, their affinity for fish, and their skilled swimming.
