George the Seahorse

George devotes much time to farming and other business interests, including his underwater distillery.
John the seahorse

John enjoys farming at his home. He began to work on an autobiography (which he hasn’t finished yet).
Thomas the seahorse

Thomas has an eagerness to satisfy his boundless curiosity for life. He pursues science and natural history through research, experimentation, and invention.

He wanted to travel to Paris, but didn’t have enough money. He changes documents about his life to make his legacy look better.
James the seahorse (the other James)

This James is another James, no relation to the previous James. He sold his sea farm to the Thomas’ university and lives there now.
John Quincy the seahorse
John Quincy the seahorse
Served in the seahorse house of representatives. He became an important antislavery seahorse voice in the Congress.
Andrew the seahorse
Andrew the seahorse
Andrew participates in frequent duels. He had been wounded so frequently that it’s said he "rattles like a bag of marbles."
Martin the seahorse
Martin the seahorse
Friends with the barnburners and free soilers, Martin opposes seahorse slavery being expanded into the west oceans. Martin travels extensively to Europe. And likes to spend time with his grandchildren.
William the seahorse
William the seahorse
Likes to talk for hours. He’ll often talk even when the ocean is getting cold and he won’t wear a hat or scarf.
John the seahorse
John the seahorse (the other John)
While loving peace, he also supported seahorse slavery. Many seahorses called him a traitor.
James K the seahorse
James K the seahorse
James is a great seahorse. Said what he intends to do and does it.
Zachary the seahorse
Zachary the seahorse
Zachary is a seahorse of contradictions. A fighter that doesn’t like to fight. A politician that doesn’t like politics. Zachary doesn’t like talking to other seahorses.
