Seven Seas: Creta Picture

In my mythology, a landmass known as Athena's Island has been existing in between this dimension and another. Anything that rests there remains unaffected by the outside world until it is removed.

On this island are several strange creatures, including many surviving magical species from the seventh age of the universe (in which all the Greek, Norse, and some Asian mythological characters and species lived and died) like Goblins, Mandragoras, etc. A group of humanoid fish were amongst this vast menagerie, but they were all but wiped out by a wizard named Prospero in the eight (current) age of the universe, with only one surviving member named Caliban alive to recount the tales of his people.

Caliban's race worshipped the sea (duh), particularly seven spirits that looked over it. These spirits would take physical form from time to time, basing their bodies after humans and the dominate sea predators. Each represents one of the seven most dangerous seas of the current age of the universe. While they spent the previous ages traveling the globe, during the eight age they settled down in the temple built to them by the fish men and the island creator, Athena. They guarded this temple and its vast fortune: the armor and weapons of the great Greek heroes and "gods" of the seventh age of the universe.

Creta is the leader of the Seven Seas and by far the strongest, based on a tylosaurus. The second smartest of the group, she is known for her frequent mood swings (she's beyond bipolar), being kind and giving one moment to harsh and violent the next. Her unpredictable nature makes her a hard opponent, which isn't helped by the fact that her chamber is completely submerged and swarming with predators, including flocks of elasmosauruses and armies of mosasaurs of various sizes.

The Seven Seas were inspired by Discovery Channel's "Chased by Sea Monsters" special, in that they are made of the creatures featured on that special and listed in the same order as the seas on that special. They feature heavily in Tremere's Saga.
