About the Show

When sixteen-year-old Zac Blakley decides to camp on  Mako Island , unaware that three mermaids,  Sirena Nixie ,  and  Lyla , who are guardians of the island, are watching him. That night, when the full moon rises, Zac comes into contact with the magic water of the  Moon Pool . The following morning, he wakes up discovering he has become a merman with a fish-like tail and the ability to control and manipulate water. His new-found merman abilities will cause problems for the  mermaids . The mermaids have been left behind at Mako Island while the  Pod  has left. Unfortunately, they don't stop Zac from showing him his tail and powers. MERMAIDS Season 2 Official Trailer EDIT


 

Lyla, Sirena, and Nixie, three both as mermaids.

All merpeople share the same basic traits.

Ten seconds after mermaids touch water, they get a long golden-orange tail and a matching top. Their tails are covered in scales and end in a classic dolphin-shaped fluke. They also have a short dorsal fin running along the backs of their tails, from their waists to a little more than halfway down the tail.

When merman come into contact with water, they also get a tail after ten seconds. Mermen have an ocean-blue tail that ends in a pointy-shaped fluke. They also have a short dorsal fin running along the backs of their tails, from their waists to a little more than halfway down the tail.

The tails from mermaids and merman are also very strong. This is shown when Emma saves   Zane Bennett  by smashing in the steel door on  Miss Chatham's boat , or when Nixie brakes the icy surface of the pool in Rita's  Grotto .

When merpeople are in human form and get a tail, their clothes vanish. Their clothes will only return when they become human again. Their hair keeps its natural color and length, but any hair-ties, headbands, hair clips, or hairspray will disappear, along with their clothes. When they're dry, their hair returns to whatever style it was in.

Merpeople in human form also get a tail if they touch snow or ice. But southern merpeople never interact with snow or ice because they will also develop snow rash and become feverish. The only way to cure them is by sprinkling dried seahorse powder onto their skin.

It is still unknown how merpeople are born, and how they reproduce. Merman left mermaids for more than a thousand years ago. The only thing known about merman where they went after the war, is that they went living on land.

 
 

Psychology

Both genders are seen as the same creature, but mermaids and merman have different behaviors and a different color of the tails. Originally, both genders lived in groups or pods. But after the great war, merman no longer lives in pods. Instead, they were brought up on land and raised on land, probably to hide from the mermaids after losing the war. This also explains why mermaids haven't seen merman for a while. Merman is seen as the enemy of mermaids, and merman would do anything to obtain power.

Zac doesn't really have this typical merman behavior, but this changes when he falls into the moon pool and becomes a merman. Every full moon, he gets obsessed by getting the trident, and when he finally sees and touches the trident for the first time, he snaps out of the moon spell. But when Zac turns around with the trident in his hands, he discovers that Nixie, Lyla, and Sirena also have a tail. And Zac sees the girls as his enemy when Lyla tries to take the trident from him. He believes that he's supposed to have the trident, and control the power within it, but he also thinks that Nixie, Lyla, and Sirena want the power within the trident. He feels betrayed by the three girls.

Later, the mermaids try many unsuccessful attempts to take the trident from Zac. Zac wants to keep the trident in his hands, so he even goes so far that he tries to take over Mako from the mermaids after he believes that he saw reinforcements to attack him and take the trident. Zac is unaware that he's recreating the war between mermaids and mermen and almost succeeds.

Mermaids are determined to learn more about their powers and to master them for good things, instead of getting more powers to gain more might. They even have a   Mermaid School . In this school, they learn how to control their powers when they're very young, and use them wisely to protect the ocean, the sea creatures, Mako island, and the moon pool.

They live in pods and are never alone. They also aren't really solitary as merman are. But Lyla is an exception. She isn't that much with the others, and more likes it to work alone.

But even if mermaids weren't in a pod, they would always bring someone else, and travel in a small group, a group of two or three mermaids.

When natural mermaids first get legs, they would have difficulties with walking, but they get used to it after some time.

On their birthdays, mermaids give gifts away rather than receive them.

Humans changed into merpeople via the Moon Pool gain only a few powers. Three humans gain one power over water between them while one gains all. Natural-born mermaids are born with all mermaid powers, including some that human-turned-merperson do not possess. However, natural or sea-born mermaids need to be taught how to summon and use these powers.

Sickness can mess with their abilities and they may channel their powers through their sneezes or other symptoms.

Water-based Powers

Hydrokinesis

Hydrokinesis is the elemental ability to create, control and manipulate liquid water at will.  Hydrokinesis  has been used to float water in the air or spray it in the form of a jet blast. One can also control water and mold it into any shape and for he or she desires. It's also used to mold water into a multitude of shapes, ranging from simple water orbs to a miniature mermaid figurine and three-headed snakes. Hydrokinesis also allows the user to multiply the water molecules, making the shape of the water to grow more and expand in size, despite the small amount in a glass to begin with.

When a mermaid with this power is in the moon pool during a special planetary alignment, it is greatly strengthened to Aerokinesis, the power to control the air and wind.

List of Merpeople to Have this Power:

  • Cleo Sertori
  • Lyla
  • Nixie
  • Sirena
  • Zac Blakely
  • Evie McLaren (temporarily)
  • Ondina
  • Mimmi
  • Erik
  • Cam Mitchell (temporarily)
  • Charlotte Watsford (temporarily)
  • Weilan
  • Amaris
  • Jewel
  • Naia

Hydro-Cryokinesis

Hydro-Cryokinesis is the elemental ability to freeze water.  This ability can cause things to become brittle enough to break, such as an electronic lock. Hydro-Cryokinesis can be used to freeze an entire person, since large portion of human body is made out of water. It can also be used to render people immobile by freezing only their wet clothing. Mixed with Hydrokinesis, this power can create ice sculptures or ice-orbs, but it would eventually melt or shatter. At first, it implies that Hydro-Cryokinesis could only freeze things with water over it. But several times in season one, Emma was able to freeze, cool, and lock objects with her powers without the aids of water. This could imply that she can freeze the small water molecules around those dry objects.

If a mermaid with this power is in the moon pool during the special planetary alignment, it is drastically enhanced to full-fledged Cryokinesis in which one can freely create and control solid ice.

List of Merpeople to Have This Power:

  • Emma Gilbert
  • Lyla
  • Cam Mitchell (temporarily)
  • Charlotte Watsford (temporarily)

Hydro-Thermokinesis

Hydro-Thermokinesis is the ability to heat and boil the water. It means that Thermokinesis is the most volatile and dangerous of all three original powers. Throughout the series, we discover that this power can easily get out of control. Thermokinesis is most useful when the merpeople need to dry off their tails faster.

If a mermaid with this ability is in the moon pool during the special planetary alignment, it is enhanced to Pyrokinesisand Electrokinesis: the power to create and control fire, flame and heat, as well as the ability to generate and control pure lightning and electricity.

In the episode  "A Magnetic Attraction"  Rikki is shown to be controlling the vastly powerful moonlight energy trapped deep within the walls of the cavern. She is said to have accessed a special and deep connection with moon pool itself.

List of Merpeople to Have This Power:

  • Rikki Chadwick

  • Evie McLaren (temporarily)

Gelidkinesis

Gelidkinesis is the power to turn water into a jelly-like compound. A mermaid or merman using it also shows the ability to change its viscosity (making jelly to catch Cleo's fish). And on the episode "Queen for a Day" Bella's allergic reaction affected her mermaid powers and so when she sneezed it caused every liquid in the room to become jelly-like.
