Commission for Phil V.
This character is sort of inspired by the Arthurian legends. A maiden in love got her confession rejected. Heartbroken, she rowed to the middle of the lake and fell into it. The gods took pity on her and gave her a mermaid form. They used the outfit she was wearing as raw material to create scales on her body. It was a beautiful multi-colored dress with a golden belt, made by herself to impress the man she was in love with. The gown was so skillfully handsewn each color blended with each other.
