Although meurin grow large enough to carry a rider, the problem is finding one tame enough. Meurin are aggressive, especially with one another, resulting in fights that, at best, leave scars. These powerfully built brown-and-cream colored creatures spend a great deal of time lurking, waiting for some unfortunate creature to come close enough to grab. Meurin are known to have good eyesight, but only above water. Under the water, especially in the deepest parts of the lake, they rely mainly on vibrations to detect the location of other creatures.

Anyone looking casually at a lake in Alveus might spot what they think is a crocodile. However, many times what they see is a meurin, a peculiar creature exclusively found in Alvean lakes. Meurin grow slowly, only reaching their full size after about five years. Although quite stocky, their four large flippers enable them to move quickly through the water. Their flippers also enable them to climb onto the shore, where they lay their eggs at the end of the summer breeding season. Interestingly, they will also clamber onto the lakeshore, despite being slow and clumsy on land. They are just as unfriendly on land as they are in the water, jostling for the best spot and scaring others away.
