* This is the cover story that Lyla, Nixie, Sirena, Mimmi and Ondina all use in ''Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure'': they're staying with their beloved Aunt Rita for an undisclosed period of time. [[InvokedTrope It's a complete fabrication]]; they're only related to Rita in that they're all from the same mermaid pod (and even then, Mimmi was actually born into a different pod), but the younger mermaids needed ''some'' excuse to be in town, and daughters of the local high school principal suddenly showing up would have been too implausible.
