You know what we mean!
Papa Clam is a proud, emotionally-invested father to Shelldon, his beloved adopted son. Papa Clam, on the surface, seems distracted and preoccupied, but that's because he's always trying to keep the truth about Shello Pollo a secret from Shelldon.

Dr. Shell is a brilliant yet scatter-brained inventor and a permanent resident of The Charming Clam. His room is filled with all kinds of crazy gadgets and gizmos making it look like a cluttered inventor’s workshop. Dr. Shell is Herman’s mentor, and Herman is constantly seeking Dr. Shell’s advice about how to turn his junk into valuable “eco-friendly” inventions. Dr. Shell was thrilled to learn the truth about Shelldon’s great explorer ancestor, and he’s the only one in Shell Land that doesn’t tease Shelldon about it.
Once a former beauty queen, Mrs. Prim runs the town’s only beauty parlor, Shrimp de Salon. With her clipped British accent and decorous ways, Mrs. Prim is Shell Land’s town gossip. She can’t keep a secret no matter how much she swears she will. When she was cutting Shelldon’s hair she swore she’d never tell anyone that Shelldon’s ancestor was Shello Polo.
(Hook is a yellow regal cichlid; Sam is a sockeye salmon; Mack is a mackerel.)
Hook, Sam and Mack are the heavy-metal bikers of Shell Land. Despite their tough-guy persona, these dumb dudes are really a good-hearted bunch. They’re friends of Shelldon’s, and come to his rescue on occasion. They think his being related to Shello Polo is totally cool, and have even written a theme song for The Shello Polo Undercover Discoverers Club called “Undercover Discoverer”, dedicated to Shelldon. They hate it when people tease Shelldon about his ancestor and are quick to come to his defense, though they’re so dumb they don’t even know who Shello Polo really is. They think he discovered water polo.
Crabby is the grouchy owner of the neighbourhood bookstore. Because he’s worried about his bookstore’s reputation and fears losing customers, he pretends to tease Shelldon about his relation to Shello Polo when customers are around, but in private he admires Shelldon and Shello Polo, and offers Shelldon help with research books, maps, etc. Crabby desperately searches for his own famous relatives, and comes up with silly false examples, like Albert Crabstein and Ludwig von Crabhoven.
