Centuries ago, an ancient water-dwelling race built a hidden city beneath a mountain in the sea. Though these creatures had their enemies, the city was an impenetrable fortress, and, in the safety it provided, they grew complacent., however, harbored a curious spirit that could not be satisfied living so cushioned a life. Unable to resist the allure of danger, Fizz had a habit of sneaking out of the city to look for trouble. In his many adventures he grew to be a powerful fighter with a sharp cleverness that let him skirt danger with ease. One day Fizz returned to find the city abandoned: his people had vanished, leaving Fizz without a clue to explain their disappearance. With nothing left in the city to keep him, Fizz salvaged an enchanted seastone trident from the ruins and set out alone.

The Marai are Vastaya water dwellers residing in the Guardian's Sea. A sentient species resembling a mix between Humans and fish, the Marai are capable of withstanding enormous pressures of the Great Deep and being able to live in salt and fresh waters.
The Marai rely heavily on Moonstones, powerful objects found only on the surface world, which light altering properties help the Marai ward off larger predators that reside in the deeps. The stone's powers lasts only one hundred years and is the sacred duty of The Tidecaller's to acquire these objects. Before its light fades, the Tidecaller must journey into the Great Deep, retrieve an abyssal pearl, and carry it to the surface. There, on the night of the winter solstice of the hundredth year, the Tidecaller makes a ceremonial exchange with a landwalker bearing a moonstone. By trading the pearl for the moonstone, the Tidecaller ensures the survival of the Marai for another century. The current Tidecaller,is desperately searching for a Moonstone to help her people.
