Despite their vicious appearance, Leocerdo are not prone to evil tendencies. In fact, they view themselves as protectors of the realms in which they dwell. They are normally the first to volunteer when someone they know calls for assistance. They will often gravitate to areas where assistance is needed most, or where war is eminent. While considered warmongers by most, the carchardians have proven to be champions of freedom, and securers of peace. They do not often form societies of their own, preferring to intermingle with the other races. Physical Description: Reaching up to 10 feet in length, Leocerdo seem an almost monstrous combination of shark and merfolk, possessing both swift speed and great strength. Skin color ranges from blue, to grey, to tan, and their eyes are most often black. Unlike other merfolk, the Leocerdo's flesh does not change in appearance or texture between its two halves. Hands are webbed, and arms are ridged with fin and bone-like growths in both genders. Their heads remain that of sharks, though perhaps a little more expressive. Instead of hair they have thick flesh formed into pleated plates that start at the back of the skull. While both genders typically grow to the same length, females tend to be a little sleeker.
