Welcome to the OUAN Wiki

The OUAN Site Wiki is a labor of love created by the current members of OUAN for the future members of OUAN. Our goal is to make the canon history of our site as easy to peruse and learn as possible for those of you who wish to join our family. Within you can find everything from species to characters to members to canon tales and so much more.

WE ARE IN BETA TESTING RIGHT NOW. ALTHOUGH 99% OF THE WIKI IS DONE, WE ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FACT CHECKING, PROOFREADING, AND COMPLETING A FEW EXTRA PAGES AS WE REALIZE THAT WE NEED TO MAKE THEM. Please excuse our mess. If you find empty pages, we are working on filling them post haste. If you find conflicting information, we are working on making our facts align across pages and we would be happy to tell you which piece of conflicting information is correct. We apologize for any confusion, with luck Beta Testing will be over the and the Wiki will be 100% done shortly.

THANK YOU!

Treasure Island is a children's novel written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1883. It is one of the most dramatized novels in the world and heavily influenced other fictional depictions of pirates including treasure maps marked with an 'x', one legged pirates with parrot companions, and the infamous 'black spot'.

It was important for Once Upon a Nightmare to include Treasure Island to expand the mythos surrounding the Maritanis. To make the island more than just a treasure repository, it was decided that it would not simply house physical treasure, but also a mystical altar placed there by the goddess of the sea to crown someone worthy of the title of the Pirate King and as a hiding place for the mythical Golden Fleece. In addition, Eric Flint of the Little Mermaid was given the dual role of Jim Hawkins and Captain Hook of Peter Pan was made the mutinous Long John Silver.

Canon Tale



Eric was just an innkeeper’s son until one of the guests at the inn changed his life forever. After listening to the man’s tales of sailing with the Pirate King, he witnessed the man’s death at the hands of a pirate with a hook in the place of one hand. Knowing the pirate sought the magical compass he had helped the guest to hide, Eric retrieved it and escaped, determined to find his way onto a ship where he could find Treasure Island himself and crown himself the Pirate King...but sailing the seas now is more dangerous than ever, and finding anyone willing to brave the Maritanis is difficult.

Though the plague of the Walking Starvation ended, the aftereffects of the undead still plague both land and sea. Like other areas of the world that were Blighted, the seas are haunted by the Shades of those who died at its hand. Merkind, Pirates, and even Monsters of the deep still stalk the seas in spectral form and pose a terrible danger to anyone who crosses their paths. The Sea Witch, Ursula, has promised the Merkind protection and an immunity to the Hauntings that plague the sea, but that protection comes at a terrible cost.

Many months ago when the Blight was ravaging the land, it was time for Ariel’s ‘Breach’, a ritual that allowed the Merkind to spend a single month on land with legs among the humans. At the end of the Breach, the Merkind would choose whether to return to the sea or remain on land for all time. Triton feared his daughter’s obsession with the land dwellers would cause her to forsake her people. So, he used the Blight as an excuse to cancel all upcoming Breaches and keep all Merkind confined to the sea. Angry over the decision, Ariel made a deal with the Sea Witch to be granted legs to venture onto land. For Ariel, this deal required that she serve Ursula the Sea Witch's interests until her debt was paid in full. Ariel did not know that this would require a year of service as the Sea Witch's slave, nor did she know that she would not remember any of the terrible things the Sea Witch made her do when her servitude was over.

Desperate to find and save the princess, her dearest friends among the Merkind were granted human form by King Triton himself using the magical trident given to him by the Coming Tide. Sadly, before Ariel could be found and returned home, the Blight began an assault on the Maritanis. In a final effort to save her beloved seas, the Coming Tide, Goddess of the Ocean, gave her life to create the mystical Sea of Lyrielle inland, to grant her Merkind the limited ability to walk on land, and to move the Merkind capital of Mahrielle into the Sea of Lyrielle now located next to the capital of Ga’leah, Castle Caerleon. King Triton died protecting his people from the Ocean Blight.

The Merkind could afford no time to acclimate themselves to their new home in the Sea of Lyrielle. Instead, they joined forces with the High Court to fight the Blight and save the world. Now the Blight has ended, the dilemma of who will succeed Triton as King of the Merkind has become the primary problem for Merkind. Mermaids are merely warriors, foot soldiers taught to protect the much more rare Mermen and their Mersociety from threats. None of Triton's daughters are permitted to succeed him as ruler, and for this reason, the Mermaids have begun whispering about revolution... whispers the Amazons have promised to turn into a battle cry.
