"You know, when I was a young whippersnapper, we had scavenger sashimi every afternoon. But where have they all gone, can you tell me that, eh? They can't have gotten smarter! Someone's been interfering with my scavenger supply! Some toothy little blowfishes, I'll show them."

Legends

Darkstalker

When Pearl, Fathom, and Indigo were getting dressed for the party, Pearl helped adjust Indigo's pearls. Indigo thanked her, and Pearl told Indigo that in return, she could distract Humpback whenever he tried to drone on and on about the old days and his scavenger supply to her. This broke the three into a laughing fit.

At the party, Humpback was seen alongside his wife, Queen Lagoon, and their daughter, Splash. He was stabbed and killed by Albatross immediately after Albatross killed Lagoon.
