Characters in the Merworld

Farallon The Merchild – means “wild jewel”

Farallon is a high spirited and mischievous merboy that gets hold of some magic shells he “borrowed” from principal Orca’s cavern and decides to bring a human boy into his forbidden world. Farallon is a typical merboy who just wants to have fun, but he has a problem of not thinking things through which lands him into more trouble than he can handle. He is always trying to find adventure in everything he comes across, but this always ends up in disaster.
