hijacking a mercantile ship. Colbrah has a maniacal attitude when he fights and rude when he talks
to others. He loves to blow stuff up, always a plus when they are people and mermaids. He is partially
deaf because of all the explosions he has made, that is why whenever a mermaid sings he goes up to them
