Uncle Patrick

Uncle Patrick is a 55 year-old seadog, a bit gruff, but with rather free-spirited hippie tendencies.

He’s a reputed oceanographer, settled on the island of Maotu in order to carry out his research on the underwater world and the preservation of species in peace. Until the day when his nephew and niece, Yann and Marina, turned up on the island to move in with him.

Since then, he regard them as his own children. Uncle Patrick represents parental authority, but he also knows that he can rely upon Yann under any circumstances and is soft on Marina, totally unable to deny her anything.


Patrick fine-tuned some of his inventions as well as perfected his boat, the Taaora. He invented „The Turtle“, a submarine that can carry the little family on board to explore the seabed.
