Bubblebreath Condition in Shireon | World Anvil


"You look rather bubbly tonight, friend."

"Yeah, I had a headache and didn't have time to wait for the bubblebreath to end."

— Conversation between two sirens


The only way to get bubblebreath is to consume summerkelp, a sea weed often eaten to relieve headaches. As bubblebreath is far from lethal, most aren't turned off of it by mere bubbles as it's definitely not as bad as a throbbing headache.


The affected will generate excessive amounts of bubbles through their gills. Not only does it look silly, it tickles quite a lot as well.


There are no ways to treat bubblebreath. You're stuck with it until it passes.


Even though having bubblebreath is quite the horrible fate, it will pass in a few hours.

That is, if the affected doesn't eat more summerkelp, of course.


There is only one way to prevent bubblebreath: Not eat summerkelp.


Bubblebreath was discovered by chance when a young siren ate summerkelp as a dare. The bubbles were amusing for the young gang. The phenomenon spread quickly among young sirens, soon becoming a well-known prank or party trick.

One day someone noticed their lingering headache was gone after eating summerkelp. This information soon spread like wildfire through the siren population. A few decades later it had already become a well-known remedy all over Vutara Bay.

Cultural Reception

Since summerkelp is used as a remedy for an ailment as common as headaches, people don't really care too much if someone has bubblebreath. However, it is seen as a bit rude to not stay home until the bubbles have disappeared. Among the higher class population it is considered crude and not appropriate in polite company, though.
