The Chinese Mermaid is an ancient Eastern mermaid and the water spirit from the Legend of Jiao-long.


This mermaid was a member of the Eastern Pod centuries ago. She fell in love with a land boy, but their relationship was discovered by another pod. Wishing to punish the mermaid and her entire pod for letting it happen, the other pod changed the human into a Water Dragon whose only wish was to destroy the mermaids. His loved one found or created a magic bracelet and she used it to change him back into a human. Her tale is immortalized as the Legend of Jiao Long.

Somehow, her bracelet was lost but was found centuries later by another mermaid, Rikki Chadwick.

Mermaid Powers

As a mermaid, she had the ability to swim at a super speed, breath underwater, and dive at depths no human being is capable of, completely protected from its cold and water pressure. She is also capable of holding her breath for at least fifteen minutes before returning to her normal underwater breath. Since she was in a relationship with a land boy, she probably cast the Legs Spell on herself. The Chinese Mermaid also had the natural ability that all natural merpeople have to become invisible.


  • Her role is very similar to Eva. Both are past mermaids and both faced a similar threat to the protagonists and both offered a solution to defeating this threat.
  • It is possible the dragon she faced could not harm her because of the love they shared. The same happened for Mimmi and Zac as their mother was the dragon they faced.
