Cookie was the cook on board the Sweet Judy during the events of Nation. He was considered odd for bringing his own coffin on the ship with him. He did not intend to die in the the coffin; instead he intended to live in it. It could float, had a keel, a cloth that could be used as both a shroud or a sail and a folding mast. Inside it contained biscuits, fishing gear, a compass, water filter and sea charts. He survived the Wave in it and was washed up on Mrs. Ethel J. Bundy's Birthday Island where he was rescued by the Cutty Wren.
