RAISE You heft your translucent sack in one hand without removing it from your belt. The fish darts down towards the bottom of the sack, jaws open as it closes in on a finger! At the last moment it veers away, giving you a reproachful look as you settle the sack back in its original position. XXX reaches down and hefts her translucent sack in one hand without removing it from her belt. The fish inside darts down towards the bottom of the sack, jaws open as it closes in on her finger! At the last moment the fish veers away, and XXX settles the sack back into place.
STARE Something in your translucent sack catches your eye. Your fish is staring up at you, its milky gaze unwavering. After a moment, you glance away, a small shiver running down your spine. XXX stares down at her translucent sack. The fish's milky gaze stares back at her for a long moment, before she turns away with a slight shiver.

Tier 3

At this tier, Ambie will add a name to the fishie which only the owner will see in all the verb messaging. This unlocks another verb as well.

Style First Third
SHAKE You grab hold of the wire holding your translucent sack closed and give the sack a hard shake! FISH NAME goes tumbling around the inside of the sack, flailing wildly before slowly recovering his equilibrium. His gills flare wide for several moments, then he turns with deliberate menace to face you, staring directly into your eyes. His jaw shifts, exposing far more teeth than he should possibly possess, and flicks his tail once. When he feels you've gotten the message, he turns away once more and glides to the far side of the sack, ignoring you completely. XXX grabs hold of the wire holding his translucent sack closed and gives the sack a hard shake!

Additional Information

Look

Fishies come in "a translucent sack", which cannot be altered in any way. There are four items that can be customized, however, by any willing merchant: the fish size and type, fish color, fish eyes, and sack closure. When LOOKed at, the sack shows:

This translucent sack is a little more than half-filled with brackish water.  Drifting in the sack is (a relatively small piranha), with some decidedly unusual features.  The fish's head is too large for its body, and its scales are a (muddy brown) color.  Massively oversized teeth protrude from the fish's jawline, and its eyes are bloodshot, with one twice the size of the other.  The translucent sack is held tightly shut with (a length of strong wire).
