A large shadow falls over the courtyard as a massive, sloshing oak barrel flies overhead. The barrel crashes down with a thunderous bang and crashes into one of the walls of the Citadel. A small figure leaps from atop the barrel, and runs toward Lukester with a curious waddling gait. When the figure finally becomes clear, it is revealed to be a penguin, dressed in a ridiculous pirate costume, complete with feather plumed hat, tattered seaman's jacket, rose-lensed goggles, and a wooden toy sword.
"D'arr! I be Cap'n Penguin! Welcome teh' th' Citadel! Have a spot o' grog!" he shouts enthusiastically, tossing him a mug of salty, green, bubbly, foamy grog. "Mind if I call yeh' Lukester? All them numbers gives me a headache, yarr."
