Caecillia was the princess of an ancient merfolk empire and, upon her brother being chosen to take the crown, she tried to usurp his throne with magic. With the help of Delphina and his own power, the king managed to fend off the witch and cast her down into the deepest depths of the ocean, banishing her from the kingdom, and condemning her to be consumed by the darkness.
In the darkness, she was transformed from a mermaid into a horrific creature, with the tentacles of a squid or octopus, and any poor soul unfortunate enough to seek out her power was quickly pulled into her "embrace". Usually, she offers assistance to the desperate and pitiful souls of the sea, but her assistance is a double-edge sword that always cuts those that take it.
"Aunt Caeci" told her that she could grant her wish in exchange for her beautiful voice and, without hesitation, the princess agreed. The only downside was that if the prince fell in love with and married another, she would be reduced to sea foam.
She came ashore, finding the prince and, while she failed to recognize her as his vision had been blurred before by a blow to the head and she now lacked that sweet voice, he still befriended the charming and strange girl. Though he loved her dearly, he wanted to marry the girl who had saved him, unaware it had been a mermaid-- what was now his new mute friend. Then a strange girl appeared, Aunt Caeci in disguise with the mermaid's voice, and the prince mistook her for his savior and planned to marry her.
This foiled Caeci's plans to marry the prince but she still survived to sow more suffering...
