Biology[edit | edit source]
Atlanteans were forced to adapt to life under the ocean surface when their continent sank. They used sorcery and science to allow for underwater breathing.
Over millennia, inhabitants of each city-state evolved further, with many of them evolving features similar to those of aquatic animals such as fish, cetaceans and squid. Atlanteans refer to themselves as "water-breathers". The variety of the people of Atlantis led to racial tensions between "skin and scales" and "flesh and fins" in the form of the purists, led by Ocean-Master. They considered themselves pure descendants of the original Atlanteans: fully human, without visible fish features. They hoped to cleanse Poseidonis of its diversity.
Characteristics and Culture[edit | edit source]
Atlanteans, due to their environment, have acquired the ability to breath underwater. Their conditioning renders them physically stronger than a typical human, with features such as "skin tougher than a rhino's". Aquaman and his daughter, Merina can communicate with aquatic life, via telepathy; it is unknown whether or not other Atlanteans possess this ability, as well, or if it is unique to the royal family alone.
Society[edit | edit source]
Language[edit | edit source]
Atlanteans speak a language derived from Ancient Greek, although it has evolved over the millennia since Ancient Greek died out.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Apart from the ability to breathe underwater, Atlanteans also have a stronger build, and are generally stronger than humans. Additionally some less humanoid Atlanteans display abilities similar to their aquatic relatives.
An ample part of Atlantean culture is magic, with art and education being entwined in it. Practicing requires special tattoos.
