Shanty

About

A bawdy personality for one who can’t literally break out into raunchy lyric, Shanty keeps live in Sweetsalt Cove interesting.

Where there are a lot of personalities in the Cove who would rather keep to themselves, Shanty doesn’t brook with isolationism. He’ll find and spend time with each of his watery compatriots, enjoying gossip, swapping songs with those others who sing. He’s even gotten Viriusen to laugh once, which was quite a victory on his part. If he were given to bragging.

There are no especially hidden depths to this fellow, aside from the fact that he’s difficult to converse with for practical matters. He rarely has much trouble making his needs known, and if someone really isn’t getting it, he’ll call in Tempaerta to translate for him: she’s on his wavelength, she gets him, etc. This only sometimes results in drama.

Wants

Play, company, community. For the residents of Sweetsalt Cove to spend more time together.

Family

Tempaerta F., sponsor
