    3. You always win sack races because having one lower limb just feels natural to you.

    Are they sea-vegans?

    Your voice + water = magic.

    12. Hydration is very important to you.


    You drink your eight glasses a day, no problem!

    13. You think the human world is a mess.

    14. You don't have a huge problem with luring sailors to their deaths with your sweet, sweet siren song.

    15. Ditto for causing pirate ships to splinter on the rocks of the deadly reef you call home.

    16. You can't remember the real names of human objects so you just make words up all the time.
