The Xebelians are one of the underwater species of amphibious humanoids that inhabit the Earth's oceans, native to the Kingdom of Xebel. Originally part of a larger Atlantis, they broke from the main kingdom following the Great Fall and formed their own breakaway faction. They traditionally hold animosity with the Kingdom of Atlantis, due to their rivaling military power.
Becoming a race
After the sinking of Atlantis, the people evolved and developed into their own races, such as the Xebelians. The Xebelians and the Alanteaons are the only humanoid species of Atlantis and the only two species to remain fully human in appearance, while the Fishermen evolved to fish-like humanoids, the Brine evolved into crab-like creatures, and the Trench regressed into savage creatures incapable of speech or intelligent thought. The Kingdom of the Deserters died out as the Sahara became a desert and the Missing Kingdom was reported to have completely vanish without a trace.
The Xebelians grew strong with military power, rivaling that with the Kingdom of Atlantis.
Between the 1980s and the 1990s, a series of battles involving the Xebelians occured. While it is unclear who exactly they fought, it is known it wasn't Atlantis, as the Atlantean royal family took the Xebelian princess Mera in while her parents, the Xebelian king and queen, fought in the wars.
Xebelians appear to be biologically identical to Atlanteans.
