Mermay Day 8: Mermaids and Christianity
Like most folklore Christianity heavily impacted the myths and legends of merfolk. It’s theorized Christianity is responsible for sirens evolving from bird women into mermaids. Lí ban who was most likely a minor sea goddess was turned into a story of baptism and the importance of having a saved soul. Several nixie stories began featuring calling the creature by it’s christian name would defeat it, or that they mourned not being children of god.
Melusine is one of the earlier stories about a mermaid like being marrying a human. While not overtly christian in nature, the story is a possible influence for the novel Undine by Friedrich De La Motte Fouqué in 1811 about how an undine can obtain an immortal soul by marrying a human.
This influenced Hans Christian Andersens little mermaid in 1837. The little mermaid also interestingly fearures a similar life span as Lí Ban (300 years, although Lí Ban could reach 600) and suffers a similar fate. Death and receiving an immortal soul.

what's up friends, may i offer my first mermaid oc as an offering for mermay??
this is nephelai and they're a genderfluid icon (based off this post, and now a personal hc) her female form is bigger as found in a particular species of fish which I don't remember right now but I did have a proper source
as he can be found in coral reefs, he's got lots of melanin
