Deep merfolk share some traits with their shallower-homed kin, such as humanoid torsos and piscine tails. Their adaptations to the deep, however, include darker transparent skin that makes them harder to see, and flexible bodies that instantly adjust to any amount of water pressure. Many decorate themselves with bioluminescent dyes as a form of communication as well as to lure prey.
