Atlanteans are a race of sea people who adapted from humans once their homeland, Atlantis sank to the bottom of the Ocean. They are now known as the individuals who inhabit all city-states of Atlantis.
The continent Atlantis sank beneath the surface millennia ago. The Atlanteans used science and sorcery to adapt to life on the ocean floor. Atlantis is an underwater kingdom, and the home of the Atlanteans. King Orin is the current king of Atlantis. Atlantis is the size of a small continent; the capital city is Poseidonis. Other city-states are Shayeris, Tritonis, Nanauve, Neptunos, Lemuria and Crastinus.
Atlanteans were forced to adapt to life under the ocean surface when their continent sank. They used sorcery and science to allow for underwater breathing. Over millennia, inhabitants of each city-state evolved further, with many of them evolving features similar to those of aquatic animals such as fish, cetaceans and squid. Atlanteans refer to themselves as "water-breathers".
The variety of the people of Atlantis led to racial tensions between "skin and scales" and "flesh and fins" in the form of the purists, led by Ocean-Master. They considered themselves pure descendants of the original Atlanteans: fully human, without visible fish features. They hoped to cleanse Poseidonis of its diversity.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Apart from the ability to breathe underwater, Atlanteans also have a stronger build, and are generally stronger than humans. Additionally some less humanoid Atlanteans display abilities similar to their aquatic relatives. An ample part of Atlantean culture is magic, with art and education being entwined in it. Practicing requires special tattoos
