Shahkme prefers the warmer southern waters but has been known to wander the north tributaries in search of pretty “jewels” to add to her collection. Unfortunately, the gems she seeks are the toe bones of unsuspecting humans, dangling their feet or wading in the shallows. Her preferred method of extraction is to bite them clean off the owner! So, the next time you feel a nibble on your submerged little piggies, beware!
*This is definitely my best mermaid type creature. I like the “far east” look she conveys. All those sharp points emphasize her prickly personality, while maintaining a noble demeanor. I may draw more of her schoolmates displaying their “jewelry”.
