King Kelpbeard

"Never trust the surface-dwellers"

King Kelpbeard is a ruler of New Maraqua. During the Old Maraqua era, the pirates were angered at King Kelpbeard for standing up for Maraqua and against Captain Scarblade. The pirates attacked and Maraqua was destroyed, and its people scattered.

Years later, King Kelpbeard oversaw the rebuilding of a new city in a secret location. King Kelpbeard became old and wiser, and organized armies to protect New Maraqua and prevented surface dwellers to discover the location. He also ordered the people to not interact with those of the surface, believing it was for the better.

King Kelpbeard is a 53 year old male and he is a Blue Koi. His quote is "Never trust the surface-dwellers." His duties are to renovate Maraqua and guiding and protecting his citizens.

King Kelpbeard is not the original king of the plot Curse of Maraqua but he is a noble leader to the free people of Maraqua. He was the war boss for the Neopets who sided with the pirates. Despite his somewhat unassuming appearance, he is not a foe to be underestimated, having 100,000 health points when faced in the Battledome.

Plot summary[edit]

Curse of Maraqua[edit]

Main article: Curse of Maraqua

After an attack against his old kingdom by Captain Scarblade many years ago, Kelpbeard made a royal decree during the rise of New Maraqua that forbade any of his people from interacting with surface-dwellers. Sometime during the reconstruction, he brought in two orphaned Aishas: Isca and Caylis; each having abilities of foreseeing good visions and bad omens, respectively. He was forced to banish Caylis after the kingdom's people began harassing her for her omens coming true.

New Maraqua was discovered after Garin left the kingdom, letting his gossip of the city inadvertently reach the ears of one of Captain Scarblade's crewmates, who in turn passed it on to the captain himself. When Garin returned to warn the kingdom, Kelpbeard blamed him for the war that would take place and sentenced him to be imprisoned in the deep dungeons. He even went as far as to banish Isca, who had broken the king's decree many times and temporarily housed Garin.

When he discovered the Maraquans were losing, he donned his battle armour and began fighting himself. King Kelpbeard (who fought Captain Scarblade himself) and his army had the strength to defend their kingdom (with little help from all of Neopia). It was with the help of Garin (who had escaped) and his crew, as well as the two Aisha sisters he exiled (with their giant petpet Goregas), that turned the tide of battle and defeated Scarblade's crew. With his trust in Surface-Dwellers restored, he named Garin's crew as honorary citizens. He soon lifted the ban of Isca and Caylis as an apology for his misjudgments (the latter, however, decided to stay outside the kingdom).
