Amphitrite is the founder of Find a Porpoise, a non-profit that specializes in bridging the gap between volunteer labor and non-profit causes for beach cleanup, ocean cleanup, tagging, observation, rehabilitation, and breeding programs, to name a few. She personally oversees the more secretive branch that deals with illegal fishing or whaling boats.
Occasionally, she bartends at The Mermaid’s Tale. Though you can typically find her on the seaward side, she’ll saunter over to the landward side when she’s feeling saucy.

= Personal Information =
General Overview: The calm sea to her husband’s mercurial nature, she is usually found affecting the laid back, beach bum look when presenting as a day-to-day mortal. She wakes with the dawn, powers on her laptop, and gets to work either writing or scheduling volunteers for her non-profit, Find a Porpoise.
Her otherwise queenly stature is all for show. She has lots of sass to provide, as well as a usually well meaning heart. But, like any goddess, she appreciates a good grovel or tribute/sacrifice.
Alias/Nickname: ‘Trite, much to her dismay.
Likes: Her favorite sea creature is the hippocampus or the dolphin. She is a natural at dancing. Captain Planet is her favorite guilty pleasure next to Taylor Swift.

= Skills / Abilities =
Immortality – Amphitrite is technically immortal. She is immune to the effects of aging, cannot die by any conventional means, and is immune to all known mortal diseases and infections.
Babble-speak – She can communicate in all languages and dialects. This extends to all manners of natural sea creatures of high intelligence. Most other sea life she can influence through intention.
Waterflow – Amphitrite can both excite or calm the waters, moving it to her will. This ability is more powerful in salt and brackish water.
= Personal Attire =
Normal Daily Wear: Short shorts and a tank with flip flops if she can get away with it. Her professional and evening attire, however, are very fashion forward. Amphitrite likes to be dripping in pearls, and to go with that, a full wardrobe of high couture dresses and suits.
Alternative Dress Wear: Less is more when trying to navigate the depths, so you’ll find she doesn’t wear much at all when traversing underwater. A heavy set of pearl necklaces and some netting will go a long way. At home, however, Amphitrite has similar preferences to her normal daily wear. Pearls, pearls, and more pearls adorn any lightweight fabric dresses that flow just right with the current.

Introduction written by Magdalena
Though it takes me away from my beloved ocean, I was not upset when Zeus made his demands of us. A career sounded like as good as any new beginning to me. The hope that I could influence the mortals’ views of the sea filled my heart. And so I set forth, creating ny non-profit and donning flip flops. The easy beach-goer persona has come easy to me, and is a nice reprieve from my queenly duties. I could watch the sea all day from the shore as I work remotely, or blog recreationally.
The ocean isn’t always sunshine and dolphins, though. More often than not, it is tempestuous and ill tempered, like the one who commands it. A calm word, a gentle touch to the hand. It is said that only I, Amphitrite, can talk down the angry Poseidon, and they would not be wrong. Most of the time. I am the eye, and my husband the hurricane, or so the stories go.
The nature of my emotions can be quite unpredictable when left unchecked, just ask tragic Scylla. Rage can boil just beneath the surface, it is best to tread lightly. Still, I have nowhere near the level of vengeance in my blood that other gods do. Not that that’s saying much.
