Merfilly? This desperately needs a cooler name.

After some internal discussion, the stats were revised a bit, making their horrible razor sharp fins something they use after they've grabbed you with their tail. Beware. Also included their grapple CMB in their stats because no one wants to figure that out mid battle.
