tidehunterThe Tidehunter known as Leviathan was once the champion of the Sunken Isles, but his intentions are as mystifying as those of his people. We all know the significance of the Drylanders’ shipping lanes, how kingdoms may rise and fall according to who have power over the open water. Far less is recognized of the submarine lanes, and how the militaristic tribes of the Meranthic Diaspora have sliced out habitations through endless undersea conflicts. In the fragile treaties between the Mer and Men, we can glimpse the extent of the obscure empires, but their politics appear complex and obscure. It would seem that Leviathan tired of such trivial strife, and set off on his own, dedicated only to his abyssal god, Maelrawn the Tentacular. He hunts the shallows now in search of men or meranths who stray into his path and with a particular loathing for Admiral Kunkka, who has long been his arch-rival for reasons lost in the deepest channels of the sea.
