this is sydney, an orca mer

he's a large boi (orcas can reach up to 24 ft irl!) and a very good hunter. he catches extra fish for frederick when he and his shoal are in the arctic for the summer. while he's very charismatic, most other mer are suspicious of him for being a warmblood.

he's one of the few mer that speak "drylander," but somehow he talks like a mix between a pirate and a new yorker
