Meranths, also known as Mer, are inhabitants of the seas, likely comprising of Slithereen, Naga, Levianths, and others. The Meranth are spread out across a diaspora, whose tribes are constantly at war over territory. Meranth politics are complex and opaque to the surface world, although they do maintain treaties with the nations of man.[1]

Sven minimap icon.png Sven is half-Meranth, as his mother was a "Pallid Meranth". It is unknown what distinction this entails, but is assumed to give a hint of a yet to be revealed meranic "wild race", according to the Vigil Knights. Given Sven's place of upbringing, his mothers race may be common to the Shadeshore Ruins.[2]


Meranth mythology looks to the moon and stars for wisdom and guidance.[3]

Meranth criminals are kept in the Dark Reef prison.[4]
