Welcome, FinFriends! I am Serena, Mermaiden Princess of the Mediterranean Sea. I have been chosen to represent my kingdom in first contact with the human world. In this I am truly pleased. All my life I have wondered about the landfolk and their strangeways. To be part of this historic time when our two worlds are finally united is such a thrill!
To tell you some things about myself: My parents rule the Mediterranean Sea as Queen and King and as their daughter I am a royal Mermaiden. This means I am gifted with special powers to be used to bless my merfolk. My power is the gift of Kaleidoscope, which means I can change the color of anything I touch… coral, seaweed, fish, even my own tail!
It brings me so much pleasure to beautify the undersea world around me. I spend much of my time decorating the creatures who come to me. I’ll tell you about my favorite art project so far…
One day, several tails ago, I was taking a swimbreak in merschool and I happened upon a small gray triggerfish being bullied by some eels. They were teasing him and circling around and around so he couldn’t get away. The poor little guy was so upset! I quickly shooed those nasty eels off, scooped him into my arms and wiped the bubbles from his eyes. I asked him what the eels had been saying to upset him and he told me they were making fun of his nickname. Apparently in some places, triggerfish are also called “pig-faced fish”. When he told me this, he burst into a fresh batch of tear bubbles. After several moments and a few deep gulps, he calmed down and I asked him if he would like to be so beautiful that no one would ever call him “pig-faced” again. He just stared at me with his big grey eyes like I was crazy and said, “it doesn’t matter, I’ll always be an ugly gray triggerfish and there’s nothing I can do to change it.”
“Not true,” I said. Then carefully I wrapped my tail fin around him and concentrated as hard as I could on the most bright and vibrant colors I could imagine. I waited a moment to be sure my power had worked and when I opened my fin, his gray scales had transformed into the most beautiful rainbow pattern! He gaped up at me as I grinned back, then he quickly looked down at his little fins—now brightly striped with blue and green and yellow—and gasped. Our eyes met and he smiled the best smile I’ve ever seen. Without a word, we both raced up to the surface so he could see his whole reflection. Over and over, back and forth he jumped out of the water from all different angles so he could see his new colored scales shine off the water. What a joy to see him so happy!
I’d never felt so good before. It was better than all the gifts and royal praise I’d ever received. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life—help others to feel happy! I do this through creating beautiful places and unique fish scale patterns. I even change mermaids and mermen’s tail colors to all different shades, patterns and colors. I love to see their smiles and how confidently they swim afterwards.
Anyway, so that’s how I met Picasso, the little gray triggerfish who no one will ever call “pig-faced” again. Ever since then, Picasso and I have been best finfriends. We go everywhere together and always have so much fun painting everything we see. He comes up with so many wonderful designs! I’d love to show you some of our creations sometime.
Thank you, finfriends, for taking time to learn about the MerWorld. I’m excited to share more stories from under the sea with you.
Until next time…

I love her and she is just like me, but I don’t like her voice.
Apr 18, 2021 at 1:38 pm
lol why not? its kinda calming.
Apr 24, 2021 at 9:46 am
Yes, but I think it makes her sound way older than she really is and just doesn’t fit to her personality.

Have you heard the horrible news already? 120 miles of the Mediterranean Sea are covered in oil! Thousands of endangered Sea Turtles are at risk of dying! (It is kind of weird that the turtle rescuers give the turtles Mayonnaise, as they say it is a miracle.)

It’s so sad!! We hope it gets cleared up soon and there’s minimal harm to the wildlife 🙁
Apr 5, 2021 at 10:47 am
What oh no somebody help them
Feb 23, 2021 at 6:30 pm
I LOVE your tail, Serena!! It is so beautiful and it is already on my birthday wish list! I am from Germany, but I have never went to the Mediterranean Sea, but it sounds amazing! You are my favorite mermaiden!

Hi! I’m curious about a few things….
1. Why is there so much violence? I hope this isn’t offensive to anyone; just a question.
2. Do you have any tips on how to make a mermaid princess backstory? My personality is combined between Waverlee, Serena, Jia, and Mariana (Scarlet)
3. How do I make my in-between bob and pixie cut hair look like mermaid hair? No good YouTube tutorials! Help please!
4. Will there be more ombre mermaid tails introduced? I wanted Bali Breeze but it seems to be leaving. 🙁

Hi Oceana! I’ll answer your questions to the best of my ability!
1. Are you talking about in the Mermaiden Tales or in the world in general? We’re always sad when people want to hurt others, and we hope the Mermaidens demonstrate that love and friendship are the better choice! ❤️
2. We have a blog article that talks all about creating backstories here: https://blog.finfunmermaid.com/2020/07/15/mersona-backstory/
3. If it’s long enough, I’d suggest a hair waver for beachy waves. I used to have a pixie cut, and I loved a textured, messy look because it’s like you’ve been playing in the ocean all day!
4. I can’t tell you what next year’s designs will be, but I think you’ll FLIP for them! 😁
