The Brassmire Chronicles
Rusalka- Water Elves (Gypsy/Middle Eastern Nomadic Culture) [water race]
Gills, eartips, some sort of facepaint or scales for the forehead?
Merchant princes who, due to their innate understanding of the Sea and it’s ways, have come to rule it in a way no other race can. Their waterlike nature have given them the gift of conversation and turning the tide of negotiation as easily as their weather witches control the seas.
