|Creation||7 Bloom 1340 DE|
In the Age of Creation, Bruh Kreniik learned how to make creation energy out of the raw energy of Chaos. This led led to islands of order amidst a sea of chaos. These islands became life sustaining realms, and according to Bruh Kreniik, needed sentients to go forth and tame them. Poseidon, against the primordial thinking of the time (which was to unmake what the Creationists were doing), seeded some of these newly formed worlds with his creations. One of these was the Merfolk, modeled it is said on the Theegan, then enhanced for the depths of the sea.
In the Creation War (1486 DE - 8777 DE), merfolk were split, roughly half siding with their Creator and the rest with the Nawirrûs Covenant. One of the greatest merfolk heroes of this war, and future god, is Sathel.
Siding with the angels and gods was our only reasonable option. The goal of most primordial lords was tearing apart all that was being created, returning Order back into the womb of Chaos, and for us a world torn would have been our end.

In the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE), the merfolk sided with the Quara'tun Covenant. After this conflict, and by the end of the God Era, the merfolk were scattered across the oceans of Bal-Kriav and many other worlds. Their level of civilization and disposition vary from ocean to ocean and world to world. On Bal-Kriav merfolk are split between Poseidon and Sathel; and no undersea domain has long held churches of both.
