General Bio:  Pearl
Pearl hails from a side dimension story that has little continuity with the rest.  Her society, the underwater kingdom of Cela'r, has long been at war with the topside world, who up until recent times, had considered the underwater species a lesser class of civilized beings thus not as important.  Tired of mistreatment and having spent many years prior attempting to engage in a civilized route, the sea kingdoms have now abandoned any hopes and have engaged in a battle with the land.

As for Pearl, her father, a general in the army, has had her family locate to the main city, which is hidden deep within the ocean enclaved in rocks so that no landside being can even comprehend its exact location.  Her younger brothers and her attend a school there and like any country at war, they still manage to experience normal life.

Pearl, not being the most "attractive" of creatures makes up for any lack of glamour with a warm yet compassionate personality that most beings find unable to be upset with.  Often quiet and shy, she tends to avoid direct spotlight and rather hides amongst her friends, and the fact she can change pigment to blend into surroundings is a bonus in that factor.

Due to some of her heritage, the two tentacles on her back are capable of giving a nasty shock if she is startled as well as shoot ink.  She rarely uses them though since her society has long given up fighting eachother in a common enemy.

Pearl finds the upside world fascinating and yet at the same time dangerous and threatening, so holds no delusions of wanting to visit. However she does enjoy looking at the strange creatures that make up topside as well as their items so whenever a ship has been captured and the prisoners are escorted, she is often there to take images of them that she keeps in an album.

The undersea beings have a major series of advantages to the topsiders, part of it being that unlike topside, they are less damaged themselves by attacking, whereas topisders should they attempt chemical attacks would likely poison themselves in the process.  And its beleived the underseas just might have some tricks up their sleeves to boot.
