Nonwantad, by Mer standards, is a disgrace.

The village, founded by a Category 4 bio-luminescent Mer named Sli'ietluk-lef't in 690, has become a safe haven for all Mer that the larger Meerabelard tribe found distasteful.

Nonwantad, physically a large cavern in a submerged hill, is a multifaceted town. On its initial founding by Sli'ietluk-lef't, Nonwantad was a town of vagabonds and pirates, who made their wealth by plundering trading vessels on their way to the Yaralon Harbor, just three miles away, and trading the stolen goods with merchants at the harbor. In doing so, these Mer sharpened their skills as guerrilla-style warriors, and banded together in a nigh on unstoppable collection of relentless Mer aggressors, and the town began to double as a band of pirates.

This lifestyle, however impressive, yielded few benefits. Firstly, the merchants of Yaralon quickly became wary of the Nonwantad Mer, and refused trade. However, when the Nonwantad, in response to this social embargo, would not stop raiding ships, many of the emperors and empresses approached Sli'ietluk-lef't, who became the speaker for the Nonwantad, with a deal. Sli'ietluk-lef't, recognizing the clear benefits to such a deal, agreed, and since 698, the Mer of the Nonwantad tribe have ceased all attacks on Yaralon trading vessels, accepted a contract to protect the Yaralon Harbor, and officially became a mercenary company.

Nonwantad, in the arcs that followed, saw their population begin to grow with more Category 4 Mer, displaced from the Meerabelard. This population growth was a welcome sight. Although a deal with Yaralon was struck, the Nonwantad felt no shortage of conflict; everything from aggressive aquatic life to Meerabelard forces did their best to exterminate the disgrace that was the Nonwantad. The tribesman, however, overcame these forces despite their numbers and biologically impaired movement due to their legs, and has time and time again prevailed as a result of their acute guerilla-style tactics and knowledge of terrain.

Nonwantad, however friendly it may be to Yaralon, is a highly exclusive settlement. They have denied any and all requests for ambassadors or embassies from any surrounding bodies, and do not allow entrance to the town to anyone but Category 4 Mer.
