Merbellas are a sub-species ofmermaids. Given the title Merbellas by Italian fishermen, it is the old name given to the "Mermaids" they saw that resembled beautiful women. They are spotted by the numerous shells and pearls, netting and eroded findings, always gathered in elaborate designs and worn on their head, neck and waist. Merbellas also create a very distinct, sub-species specific sound, as well as possessing a sort of humanistic politeness, so much as to cover thier breasts with seaweed and shells. This is something unseen in all other species of marine wildlife.
