Accanta are Children of the Sea (c.f.) that were mistreated by their human families and, for some reason, transform into a wild, almost feral creature. Like Children of the Sea, all accanta can breathe both air and water and are comfortable dwelling at great depths underwater. As an accantus approaches maturity, it becomes increasingly strange and inhuman, and leaves its adoptive parents as soon as possible. The accantus will live alone in seaside caves and ocean depths.

Like Children of the Sea, accanta look human, but have at least one feature that gives them away, such as brilliantly green eyes, hair with a green tint, or exceptionally advanced webbing of the fingers and toes.


Accanta can learn to use any weapon that a human might use, although they prefer harpoons and nets. They also possess a number of innate abilities, which are used almost unconsciously.

Control Water (Sp): From the age of nine onwards, an accantus can cast control water at will, as a 7th-level caster.

Predict Weather (Ex): From the age of five, the accantus can predict the weather in the local region with 90% acuracy, up to 48 hours in the future.

Summon Fish (Sp): From the age of seven onwards, the accantus can cause any fish within 60 yards to swarm around his location. He an do this once per day.

Summon Water Elemental (Sp): Once per day, an accantus can summon one small water elemental with maximum hit points. Water elementals will never attack accanta.

Water Form (Su): The accantus can transform his body into water at will, striking with his liquid fists for 1d8 points of damage each. Accanta are immune to blunt weapons and take only half damage from edged weapons in this form. In addition, they can alter their shape to any form desired, and may use this ability to slide under doors, through cracks, or any other obstruction that is not water-proof. They are practically invisible in water.

Accantus Society

Accanta do not mate or reproduce. Humans seldom see Accanta and live to tell the tale. Evidence of their presence may be found, however—their former family members are often found drowned in their own beds in otherwise dry homes.
