He is the first human to have discovered the isle,
in a somewhat involuntary manner however... During
a terrible storm the Kap's privateer ship was
stranded on one of the isle's cliffs, his passengers
were mysteriously propelled on the shore by an
unknown force from the sea… Eminent navigator
and keen fighter, the Kap has sailed the oceans
all his life and still does not understand how
his ship did not sink that night… The memories
related to that event are still hazy; he remembers
an intense combat against the elements, and a
gigantic wave and the atrocious pain when he lost
a leg… Today his age, his experience and
his personal magnetism have made of him a cautious
mayor and no one would dare contest his management
of the isle… Some nights with his elbows
on the bar, he nevertheless gives way to melancholy
with his old friend the barman.
A long time friend of Kap, he has become his devoted
confident. Faithful to his job he is kind and
servable, and always available to listen and comfort
the isle's inhabitants. His palm tree bar on the
village square is Itland's unavoidable location.
He is with the old timers the best-informed person:
the gossip, everyone's sidelights on history…
nothing escapes him. He is the isle's living library!
The barman is very talkative but he has a secret
load that weighs on his conscience…
He is rough and hard working, and prefers the
solitude of the open sea to the agitation in the
village. He has a perfect knowledge of the sea
around Itland, and some of the isle's inhabitants
believe that he is hiding things. The rumours
are running around the bar… FisherMan would
have discovered the secret of a submerged city
in the depths of the sea… It seems that
he learned about it talking with the Whale…
Having lived so long with the fish it seems he
developed a capacity to communicate by thought
with the most developed marine mammals!
Chut, the old Itland
Very discreet and always in a hurry, she has a
tendency to avoid crowds to take refuge in her
comfortable little lodging. Where she finds her
old photos and her souvenirs… However time
has not made her ill tempered and she regards
with a tender and knowing look the isle's young
people play around and sow their wild oats. For
those who knew her in the past know that she too
was very forward…
His knowledge of Itland plants is amazing. He
is the author of the encyclopaedia of Itland flora
: Botanika. His science of nature will be very
useful to Banja. His quiet and peaceful mood makes
him ignore the rumours and gossip that the Itlandes
are so keen on, he is always full of "Zenitude".
He likes his work and wishes to do it at best.
He is sometimes even too zealous… notably
by relentlessly pursuing all of the isle's pigs
and especially Poug that confounded pig who even
comes to have a few drinks at the bar on the square.
One day he will get him!
Formerly bouncer in a trendy New York discotheque,
he owes a lot to Kap. The latter helped him to
flee a sordid affair. Since then Phat is Kap's
faithful servant and is entirely devoted to him.
During their legendary shipwreck he saved the
Kap from drowning. Phat is certainly someone very
nice inside but he has an extremely suspicious
nature and does not beat around the bush to make
him be understood… There is nothing better
than a good right uppercut to get the message
These old folks are still very lively, they play
balls and gossip all day long ! In fact petanque
is just an alibi to just sit around and bathe
in the sun on the village centre place, chatting
and observing passers-by with many ironical comments
and stupid jokes... Faced with the constant mockery
of the village kids, they have taken up the challenge
and got involved in a mad soccer competition where
they are far from ridiculous...
He is there to warn everyone in case someone was
coming to Itland! He very rarely comes down from
his mast and seeing the number of boats that pass
at large of Itland one wonders if he does not
take to drinking for he has a certain tendency
toward the Kap's whisky bottles! At least up there
no one comes to annoy him!
