okay but kaldur'ahm side-stepping questions about it (because really guys? why is this a thing that he’s being asked? who raised these surface dwellers?) with technically innocuous responses that makes everyone else even more slightly nervous.
Kaldur sank gradually down to the bottom of the grotto, limbs loosening as he allowed himself to be carried down. He opened his mouth, releasing the stale air still held in his lungs. His gills flared open in the gentle current that ran through The Cave’s small series of underwater tunnels and pools, filtering oxygen directly into his blood from the water. Air released, his body sank more quickly, until he was lying, bare limbed, on the sandy floor.
