Mobile Water Weird (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Mobile Water Weird
A mobile water weird is a water weird that has been bound to water inside a mechanical suit. The suits are of only the highest quality, with intricate carvings and designs often included these designs can be custom fit to the buyers liking. And don't worry about durability as the MWW as we've taken to calling it is made entirely out of cast adamantine. the MWW doesn't have a power source as the entity within controls itself through hydraulic pumps its powers. There are multiple different suits that an MWW can control including light, medium, and heavy note an MWW will not switch suits as the suit type was chosen by it and forcing it into a new body would cause too much stress.
All mobile water weirds are created by very skilled tinkerers of usually gnomish origin to protect their valuables and important people. The creation of a mobile water weirds suit entails decades of intense work, it's not just pouring a weird into a metal suit and the process of finding and taming a water weird takes years and years of training and gaining its trust this is also why these constructs are so prized as the only ones that are made are completely accepting of it, to date approximately zero mobile water weirds have betrayed their masters. It is because of this they are few and far between some even protect them as if they were the valuables themselves hiring mercenaries and translators for them as they only speak Aquan.
The water weirds we select to be in suits are always docile and inquisitive to make it easier for us to teach them to imitate the cultures and customs around them to make it easier for people to accept their new friends. Being rare and essentially a slave race, MWWs have no society of their own.
Mobile Water Weird Names
The name of an MWW is entirely the buyers choosing along with other requests we will ask for a name which we will use whilst training the Water Weird. However, they normally pick names that attest to their water-based nature.
