Toruka Kaia

Knight of Weeds


“Seen for only a moment in the midst of a raging thunderstorm, this figure appears a gallant knight, adorned in resplendent blue-steel armor and regalia that would shame merfolk royalty with its finery. He is no merfolk, that much is clear, by his unnatural beauty and his great frilled crests, more lovely and resplendent than those of any merfolk. Most notably, he is draped in seaweed, wearing the soggy strands as though a cape of shimmering silk.”


A figure still shrouded in mystery, Toruka Kaia – the Knight of Weeds – is a fey entity from the Elemental Plane of Water. The lover of Ovette and the father of Weed, Toruka Kaia remains an enigma to the Hammerhead’s crew, appearing once to warn them against his betrothed, the Lady of Weeds, before disappearing again. He gave Ghostcrab back to his daughter, promising to return as soon as he could, before disappearing back between the planes.

When next he appeared, he gave Weed a cryptic warning, telling her to “Seek the star, seek the story!” before vanishing again. Following her fairy tale, Weed was pulled into the Elemental Plane of Water and rescued him from the weed-choked dungeons of his own castle. Together, the pirates and the knight went to confront the Lady of Weeds in the castle’s throne room. Once the heroes defeated the Lady of Weeds for good and all, Toruka Kaia invited Weed to retire with him, back to his underwater kingdom. After a great party on the Dragon Turtle, the two vanished in a planar shift spell and were not seen again.
