Have you ever seen an Akira? asked me to “Create a wild alien character for a science fiction story.” 

So, here goes… 


The last specimen of her race here on earth, her kind had often been called mermaids by early people groups. 

Her skin was blue, with a sleek metallic sheen. It made you want to stare- that is, until she turned her rock hard gaze in your direction. Anytime she made eye contact, her eyes flashed dark green and then went completely black for a second. Normally, her eyes were purple, with tiny flecks of gold. 

She was of the Akira tribe, an ancient seafaring nation from the planet Mira. 

On land, she had human legs and stood head and shoulders taller than any human. The average height for an adult Akira was 8 feet tall. In the water, her legs would dissolve into squid-like tentacles, losing their tint and becoming almost transparent. 

She was a kind soul, quick to help any creature in need, but had been misused in her childhood. She was loathe to accept anything from anyone, no matter their species or planet of origin. She was especially leery of humans.
