Aquis

HRu hule huli! I've placed you in Aquis, the water element. With the motto unstoppable ~ unquenchable, Aquins are a force of nature. They are known to take on noble causes and fight for them. They are very conscious of the effect human lifestyles are having on the planet and tend to volunteer to help, doing things such as beach cleanup, blowing up whaling boats, that sort of thing. They are often frustrated by the inability of those above sea level to comprehend the and respect the differences of life under the sea, and they find themselves torn between both worlds. Naiads (fresh water Aquins) are much more easygoing than their saltwater relatives.

The following is an element overview pulled from the pages of the Piddlypedia welcome circular given recruits at the commencement of their Appraisement Cycle.
