The Old Man of the Sea is a hermit who can psychically link to sea monsters and communicate with them. He lives on Shattered Beams, in The Bowl region of the Wushanko Isles.[1] He surrounds himself with sea monsters.[2]

His fishing village was suspicious of him and he lived away from them. Unlike seasingers, he can only communicate with sea monsters, not control them. After the whale Shuma destroyed his village, only Hubbub and him survived.[3]

In The Old Man of the Sea voyage, the Whaler went to Shattered Beams to request the hermit's help in stopping Shuma's rampage. Hubbub accidentally woke the sea monsters, but the Old Man of the Sea stopped them from attacking. The Old Man refused to leave his home, but taught Hubbub how to tune his sea monster sense, allowing him to listen to sea monsters. Afterwards, he taught him how to communicate back to them. Hubbub used this gift to speak with Shuma.[4][5]

We called him the Old Man of the Sea. We were suspicious of him, and he lived away from us. That is what probably saved him from the sea monsters. He was known for being able to talk to them. Not like the seasingers - he didn't control them - he was just able to communicate with sea monsters without saying a word."

    • The Whaler: That was an experience I will never forget! I can talk to sea monsters too! My 'sea monster sense' was the beginnings of the talent! The Old Man of the Sea taught me to tune that sense. So, instead of sensing sea monsters, I could hear what they were saying. After that, it was just a matter of learning how to communicate back.
    • Player: So, you can communicate with Shuma?
    • The Whaler: I can! And I've been practicing on the way here.
