    Ok, a name is a name, so I personally think there is no connection to Tidehunter and the levianths (other than worshiping the same god), maybe tidehunter gave himself that name because he likes the levianths, or maybe since his lore says he is also known by Leviathan, then maybe sailors and pirates gave him that name because he looks like an overgrown Levianth.

    So maybe Slithereens are the males, Slitherenes are the females. maybe Naga is a sub-species of them, or the Deep Ones (Slithereens) are a faction of underwater races, or maybe thats just how underwater races are reffered to as.

    She mentions it when she kills brewmaster

    I'd just like to point out something I noticed.

    Mer become Meranths in Sven/Tidehunter's lore.

    Leviathans seemingly become Levianths in Slithice's lore.

    Coincidence? Or something DEEPER (huehue that was a pun)

    I also pointed that out, but since they both worship the same god there might be some connection there.

    The Leviathan could very well be a unique creature (racewise) that just got the name from the Levianths, who worship Maelrawn just like the Tidehunter does and who fear him, respect him as a powerful being or even see a leader-like creature in him.

    On a slightly different note, what is with Naga Siren's Meeting an Ally responses?

    Her "old friend" Shadow Shaman?

    Pugna being a worthy attribute to her guard?

    I can't see how they are connected... Or if they ever were for that matter?

    It's probably the different ways of saying the same thing. I could say hen or chicken and no one would be confused. In fact, track back posts on the issue, I know there's instances of people saying "Merfolk" and I can't recall if Valve used the word.

    I'm actually willing to accept the Levianths are Tidehunter's race and... Tidehunter is... his... title? Okay, that's a problem, does Tidehunter have a name? It's... not going to be "Tidehunter" is it? One step down on that podium Disruptor.

    Either ways, there's too much damned terminology running here.

    Well, she's not accepted back in the deeps, so she's going to have to live somewhere.
    The Dire seems more than willing to put her to use as a mercenary.

    edit: wait wasn't she radiant?

    Well, once again: The teams are a whole load of bull crap
