Sophisticated and intelligent Alura saw Victorian London and wanted to be part of that world. Without a sea witch in the vicinity to give her legs she took matters into her own webs. Using her singing talents and personal charms Alura convinced a ship builder to find the parts that she needed to assemble an amphibious machine. She sang him the steps to build it as a way that they could be together. He was more than happy to oblige and was absolutely giddy when she opened the hatch so that he could give her a kiss.
Well it turns out the device is also capable of allowing a citizen of the sea to walk on land. Unfortunately it only has the capacity for one occupant.
Alura made quite a splash in Victorian society and was fiercely sought after to sing in all the most popular salons.
