What The Ocean Has To Offer
There are many myths that exist in the world. But in a world where people are gifted with Essences and therefore powers, most myths always are, to an extent, believable of have some shred of proof or evidence.
Alix lives alone where he doesn't have to worry about scaring anyone off if they realize he's a Monster. After all, most of the villagers are human and he doesn't want them to think he's going to eat them, even though he refuses to drink blood. So Alix lives on the beach, the rocky beach that's not good for swimming, so people leave him alone. However because the other guys live in the town and the only company Alix has is the ocean, he is quite lonely.
Living by the sea, he's heard the myths. He's heard the legends. He's never seen one, but perhaps the ocean has a special gift for him in the form of shiny scales and a beautiful voice....
