The characters of The Tale Of The Seas – Who is Kelp?

Kelp is the protagonist of our story and the mysterious creature that washes up on the shore of the small village by the edge of the sea. His arrival does not bode well with the villagers that live in the shadows of tradition and superstition. Unable to breathe air, Kelp has external gills ( like the awesome axolotl!) and wears a diving mask filled with sea water oxygenated by a small steam engine. Although short and unassuming, Kelp has mysterious abilities unknown even to him. A fish-out-of-water, his purpose is unclear at first, but with the help of unlikely friends Kelp will find what he seeks and his true meaning.
