Born from forbidden love between man and mermaid, Cordelia always felt the call of the sea. Growing up was a balance between worlds, and she always made time to live in both. After years of standing by while man decimated her people, Cordelia took up arms to defend the helpless. Since securing peace for her mother and the merfolk, Cordelia seeks to defend the downtrodden, the weak and the oppressed either on land or in sea. While she is often seen with her trusty knife and net, this bewitching beauty typically uses her tried and true war sword to seal the fates of those who attempt to wrong the downtrodden. Challenge this siren of the sea and you may find yourself entrapped in her net, begging for your life with your final words.
