Hello there, human folk! Top o’ the mer-mornin’ to ya! That’s how we say “good day” here in the North Atlantic Ocean. My name is Bryndolyn MacFinnegan, Mermaiden of the Celtic Sea. But most merfolk just call me Brynn. You can call me Brynn, too!
As the oldest royal Mermaiden in my home sea, I get to use my magical powers to help guard the ships that pass by. And I’m very pleased to do so. You see, my special Mermaiden power is the gift of light. Now that I’m sixteen years old, I can use my light to lead ships safely back to shore when they are lost in a storm. Each night on duty brings new challenges and new things to learn. I shine my light away from jagged rocks and toward places of safety to keep the sailors out of harm’s way. When the nights get dark and the storms get scary, I gather up all the courage I can and shine my light a little higher for the sailors.
I have a silky FinFriend named Fergus who’s been my trusty companion since I rescued him from a fisherman’s net when he was just a pup. He’s a wee spotted seal with the courage of a great sea lion and a heart of gold, so I bring him with me each night to help guide the ships. Fergus keeps me laughing when the seas are gray and smiling through the fiercest storms. He’s been with me every flip of the fin. No mermaid could ever find a truer FinFriend!
When we’re not out lighting the way for misguided sailors, Fergus and I like to explore the deep caves off the coast of the countries Ireland, England, and Scotland. With my gift of light and his great courage, we can really delve into the mysteries of the seas. Tis a fine way to pass a day here in the Celtic sea, discovering treasures in the deep, telling tales of pirates and sea monsters, and exploring new places. We have ever so many adventures, Fergus and me. I can’t wait to share them with you!
