Description: The Deep One Hybrids resemble humans with the “Innsmouth Look”. The look is a local term describing the odd conditions offered by many of the residents of the town. It is characterized by large, distended eyes, a general broadening of the mouth, and a stooping posture with many skin conditions.
This is blamed on inbreeding, the introduction of foreign blood, or the long-term result of the plague that swept through in the 19th century.
Later stages of the malady result in an enlargement of the hands and feet, and a change in hip structure that results in a hopping/shuffling gate. It is, of course, a result of the crossbreeding between deep ones and the inhabitants of the accursed town. Though most offsprings are born as normal humans, changes begin taking place usually in the victim’s early teens. By middle age most hybrids show some form of gross deformity, many retiring tot he privacy of their closely-shuttered homes. Most make the final transformation to deep one, and return to the sea.
The hybrids are not unprepared. Their physical changes are accompanied by an awakening of new senses, and they are visited in their dreams by other deep ones, sometimes introducing themselves as their hybrid’s forebears. They are shown vast aquatic cities swarming with strange creatures and they are taught about life under the sea.
The final stages are accompanied by an intensifying set of dreams and mutations until the hybrid goes mad or undergoes the final change.
Abilities: Hybrids are average human strength, health and dexterity. They are considered slightly less attractive generally but are usually larger and smarter than most of their human family. They have regular human like skills and are able to use firearms or other advanced equipment.
Life: Not much is understood at this time about their life.
Rumored History (not confirmed): It is unknown where Deep Ones or the hybrids come from.
