Merfolk are the nimble, aquatic humanoids who defend the Shoals from interlopers. They are only lightly armoured but may carry decent weapons, usually polearms, a stack of throwing spears, or throwing nets. Be careful not to face them in the water, as they gain combat bonuses when in their own element.
You may encounter a merfolk berserker while exploring one particular vault. These extra-beefy merfolk can call upon Trog for various benefits, and carry a powerful polearm as well as several potions of berserk rage.
