Artemians are an aquatic race with a culture that borrows many elements from ancient Rome. They live in underwater city-states in a roman analog society where slavery is commonplace. Each city-state is ruled by town fathers. Democracy and capitalism are the gold standards, and, in some cases, slaves are able to purchase their freedom. Merchants, fisherman, nobility, slaves, gladiators, and soldiers are common backgrounds, but, anything that fits into a roman analog society is permitted.

Physical Description[edit]

Artemians possess slender builds, with round bellies, crown-like tentacles on their heads, short, thick, pointed tails that aid in underwater travel, and bodies covered in small pink scales.


Historians know almost nothing about the artemians.


Artemians have odd habits and rituals surrounding birth. Most eggs hatch from the desecrated corpses of those that had become pregnant. All artemians mature by the age of 3, and few live beyond 30. Gender and Sex: Artemians are hermaphroditic; all are able to both bear children and implant seeds, but, they tend to follow binary gender lines, in terms of gender roles.

Artemians love commerce, philosophy, and politics.

Artemian Names[edit]

Artemian names follow along the lines of fake Romanesque names, befitting their background, or 1950's sitcom family names, befitting their sea monkey inspiration.

Male: Flavious, Bobby, John

Female: Meretrix, Donna, Gail
