Mermaid Oracle

The mysterious depths of the Atlantic Ocean, where no human hand has touched, is where Mermaid Oracle calls home. She is called ‘Oracle’ for her magical gifts of foretelling the future and wise guidance, but her ocean friends call her Ori. Foretelling the future of the polluted seas and its impact on ocean-life and mankind alike, Mermaid Ori set out on a daring mission to swim to the surface and make contact with the humans, to teach them about the importance of keeping the oceans clean. When Ori popped her head above water she saw a giant pirate ship, with humans, sailing across the water. Swimming in slowly for a closer look, she quickly dodged what appeared to have been a bottle thrown overboard by the Captain on the deck! Overcome by her frustration, Ori grabbed the floating bottle and threw it back, hitting the Captain in the back of the head before it hit the wooden deck in a ‘thud’. He spun around to see a very angry mermaid staring back at him, and ordered his crew to catch her with their nets! As they hoisted the mermaid up, and onto their ship, the Captain became entranced by her beauty and quickly cut her loose from the nets. She explained her mission to the Captain, and asked him to take her along on his journeys to meet as many humans as possible, so she could get their help in saving the oceans. Caring for the ocean deeply, himself, the Captain agreed to help. And so, Mermaid Ori sails around from port to port with the Captain, sharing in his adventures and spreading her message of ocean conservation to every wonderful human she meets!
