An islander in Nation. He had a twisted leg, so was not a warrior but he was a good hunter who taught the boys a lot. They laughed at his funny walk behind his back, but when Mau asked him about his leg he said he didn't mind. It was a gift, not a curse. When much is taken, something is given back. Since he had a useless leg, he had a sharp mind and had to use it. He had noticed Mau among the other boy as a bit different. He taught him the word that drives sharks away.
