Chuubo is a sea serpent; probably a fairly young one. He's impressively large by human standards, but only 4-6 meters long, and maybe a foot thick. He could probably fit on the deck of the Didactic Albatross, and might do so with some regularity, especially if anyone on it is up for a game of Scrabble or has a newspaper crossword puzzle he could work on. (His tongue or the tip of his tail are flexible and delicate enough to grab a pencil or tiles.)

Nobody thinks it's strange that a talking sea serpent wants to come along on an adventure. Pirates and aquatic monsters just go together, right? And maybe he's a bit too peaceful and good mannered to be as intimidating as a giant snake should be; it's still a useful thing for a ship to have. Maybe even a good luck charm. And he likes the goals of the ship. His own goals seem to be to have a good time, but being along with these pirates seems… right.

Chuubo has three recurring dreams. In one, he's not an ordinary sea serpent, but one that is hundreds of kilometers long, swimming through the sea of space between worlds instead of the sea of water between islands. In another, he's a human boy, pretty normal, but maybe a little goofy. Maybe some sort of builder? He wakes up from those with memories of some sort of machine that does something marvelous.

His third dreams are much more abstract and hard to describe, but involve words. Letters flowing by, turning from abstract ideas into solid objects; speaking in a language that seems to be synonymous with creation. His will being enacted through his words, or perhaps vice versa.

He doesn't talk much about those dreams. He wouldn't want anyone to think he was a weird giant talking amphibious reptile who played Boggle.
