Our assignment in class yesterday was to design a creature based off human anatomy, so here we go:
The harborman spends nearly all its life partially submerged in the shallow lagoons and marshes of the Heigel Estuary. Its narrow legs allow it to move through the water with relative ease, snatching small fish, birds, and frogs with deft fingers. A buoyant torso keeps the harborman well afloat, as it does not possess the ability to breathe underwater. The harborman may occasionally traverse dry land, though this is a taxing venture and will soon lead to exhaustion or injury.
Harbormen pose little threat to their human cousins, and are in fact seldom seen except in seasons of extreme drought when they venture afield in search of food.
