Interaction quotes

    • "Have you adventured into the aquatic depths yet...? Its choking atmosphere prevents most explorers from entering, but I'm confident you'll find a way around it..."
    • "I've collected many marine items in my travels, hero. Would you like to purchase one?"
    • "Being at the bottom of the ocean for long periods of time has taught me one thing; Always come prepared!"
    • "You would think it gets hard to breath under this helmet, but really I'm just used to it now."
    • "You ever try to drink a bottle of water, while drowning, to save yourself? I know I have!"

    When homeless:

    • "Visiting that sea rift again wasn't my best idea... that mutant jellyfish almost ate me whole!"
    • "Yuck... that vile creature almost got away with eating me! Thank you for saving me, hero."

    When the player clicks Air Tank:

    If the player does not already have an Emergency Air Tank:
    • "Here you go friend! This air tank will automatically activate when your breath reaches critical level. Come visit me afterwards and I'll refill it free of charge!"
    When the player already has an Emergency Air Tank:
    • "Hmm, your air tank looks full to me... Did you just want to chat? I have all manner of tales to tell!"

    When the player has the Reality Bearer buff:

    • "Not bad, kid... Not bad at all. Hopefully you've had fun during all of your adventures out there. I guess you could say I've always been keeping an eye on you."
  • Happiness quotes

  • When homeless:

    • "Last time I didn't have a home, things went poorly with a certain pink colored gelatinous mutant..."

    When neutral:

    • "I'm doing alright, how about yourself?"

    When far from home:

    • "Don't mind me. With this diving gear, I should be just fine on my way home."

    When in a sparse area:

    • "We could use a few more familiar faces around here, wouldn't you agree?"

    When overcrowded:

    • "While I love this cast of characters as much as the next guy, maybe there are too many here?"
    • "I can't think straight with all this noise around me. I need my space!"

    When in the Ocean:

    • "Beautiful sands, beautiful waters; what more could a diver want?"

    When in the Desert:

    • "The desert?! This place is the worst! Antlion eggs, rolling cacti, digging worms. Don't even get me started on it if this place were to be corrupted..."

    When in an Evil biome or the Dungeon:

    • "Well this place is pretty sinister, isn't it...?"

    When near the Party Girl:

    • "Being isolated in the Depths for so long can really darken someone's mood. Thankfully <name of Party Girl> can always bring a smile to my face..."

    When near the Pirate:

    • "You wouldn't believe it, but <name of Pirate> and I go way back. He wasn't always a saltwater scourge, yunno'."

    When near the Princess:

    • "Everyone sure seems to like <name of Princess>... Can't say I understand why."

    When near the Angler:

    • "That little twerp, <name of Angler>, thinks he knows so much about the sea..."
