Milo (m), adult, narrator; Cola (m), 17, half human-half fish; Poago (m), a villager; Donna Sophia (f), adult, mother of Cola.
“Born to a marriage of a village woman and the god Neptune, the young boy Cola does his best at leading a normal life (despite his green scaled lower torso) playing with his dolphin friend and village children under the protective eye of his mother, Donna Sophia. Simple acts of kindness such as giving gifts of gold and rubies found deep in the sea to his friends lead to others outside the safety of the village curious to see this strange youth; among them King Frederick of Sicily. The king comes to the village to test the boy and while he is there Cola discovers a threat that could destroy the entire island: a threat that only he can eliminate. Everyone turns to Cola to save Sicily but they soon realize the price he would have to pay.
“Retellis the ancient Sicilianlegend of Cola Pesce, a boy half human and half creature of the sea.”
