the Amazon, lay a kingdom of the 30,000 mermen. One fateful day, this peaceful
aquatic empire was shattered and destroyed by a tremendous earthquake and volcanic
activity. The merman emperor and hero Rikuo Aulbath, was alone. His empire
destroyed, he was filled with rage and when he found out that Pyron
was the one who caused the fall of his empire, he vowed to destroy him. But when
he met another survivor, Keera Aqueria, he settled down with her to rebuild his
empire. He and his wife moved out of the Amazon into the great ocean to raise
their family. Currently, family consists of his wife Aqueria, his three sons and
12 soon to hatch eggs.
Rikuo and his family
live in a crack, 150m deep. The current of the ocean doesn't make its way into
the area and is a perfect location to protect their eggs from danger. His
current self-imposed duty is to search for any other survivors of his kingdom.
He searches in a radius of 200km for any other surviving mermen. However, close
to his home lay a deep oceanic trench with a fast-moving ocean current. If Rikuo
fell into the trench, even he couldn't swim against the strong current.
The deepest he could search was 1000 meters. It was an endless search, but Rikuo
believed that other mermen had survived.
Ever since he and his
family had moved to this sea, although very faint, he had sensed the life of
something similar to his own race. As each day passed, his search for his fellow
merman increases in area and the time he spends with his family decreases.
During one of his searches, one of his sons, Ricky (Alba in Japan), disappears.
He ponders to himself about how one could defend a kingdom if he cannot protect
his own family. Soundly believing that his son was sucked into the Majigen,
Rikuo heads his way into Jedah's realm. But when the powers of Makai start to
fade, the lost, dark sea of Sargasso was released from its century-long
isolation and Rikuo found his son along with a new race of merman. The two
families now help one another in order to rebuild the civilization of the sea.
Rikuo is loosely based off of The Creature From The Black Lagoon (they
even share the same birthday). In Japan, he goes by Aulbath. His son's
name is Alba in Japan, and Ricky in the west. Rikuo also appeared in his own
Japanese cell phone game titled Aulbath's Wild River.
