For those of you out there that have no idea what this thing is: don't worry. I had no clue until I started my research. My brother-in-law is into World of Warcraft and as a Christmas gift I spent hours looking up the cutest creature available from the game. This is a baby murloc. I saw only one pattern for a murloc on the Internet (which I wasn't impressed with) so instead I decided to wing it.
This murloc was crafted by eyeballing the image from the game as a reference. So I really do get the credit this time! (Other than of course the character is owned by the game).
