Deep Ones are a species posited by Maester Theron in his Strange Stone. Theron drew a connection between the black stone of the Seastone Chair and of the Hightower. Theron suggested they were created by the Deep Ones, a "queer, misshapen race of half men sired by creatures of the salt seas upon human women", according to Maester Yandel. Theron suggests they inspired the legend of merlings and that the sea creatures who fathered them inspired the religion of the Drowned God.[1] The legends of Lorath claim that the Lorathi mazemakers were destroyed by creatures from the sea; it is unknown if there is a connection with Theron's Deep Ones.[2]
