Design Notes:

  • The image on their sail rotates between (often vague, blurry, or abstract) depictions of things they've heard people express hiraeth over
    • Items/patterns/colors from happy but long-gone memories, beautiful scenery untouched by pollution or corruption, etc.
    • These images are always framed in a light grey fog around the edges, giving them a dream-like appearance
  • The tear on their face are just tear-shaped markings, not actual tears
    • They're always present, regardless of mood and facial expression
  • Their tear markings and the wavy line markings on their tail are glowy
  • Body markings loosely resemble a Welsh landscape
    • Smudgy and abstracted as if drawn in chalk (not an intricately detailed landscape)
    • Partially obscured by rusty patches and pale grey fog

Character Notes:

  • After their elderly former caretaker died, they sold all of their belongings and set off on a Journey to the Sea, which they knew only from old photos/art, books, and their caretaker's reminiscing. This brought them to Sermos' largely-abandoned coastal district, where they promptly got mugged and left in a dumpster, where Fishbones and Suds found them.
  • After going home with the two kind dumpster divers who rescued them in their hour of need, they decided to stay at the Coastal Library and use their skills as a novelist and oral storyteller to inspire folks to restore the ocean to its former glory.
  • Akoiromantic
  • Plays Welsh folk music on the crwth (bowed lyre) and occasionally the flute
