Merpeople were inhabitants of the nation/state known as the Bight of Calormen in the Great Eastern Ocean. They are described as traditional merfolk, with the heads, torsos, and arms of human men and women, and long fish tails below the waists.
In one illustration by Pauline Baynes, they are drawn in a manner similar to medieval depictions of merfolk, with long green tails, pale skin, fins running down their backs, blonde hair, and adorned with seaweed wreaths, pearl necklaces, and wielding tridents.
In the 2005 film, they are depicted with brown-black hair, tan skin, and silvery fish tails with pink fins.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the WardrobeEdit
Merpeople sang at the coronation of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. They were often confused with the Sea People that live near the End of the World because both species lived in the sea.
They are seen near the end of the film swimming, leaping, diving, and laughing in merriment near the shores of Cair Paravel.
