Why seamonsters? Since men and women have sailed the oceans, our storytelling tradition includes seamonsters. Legends, fairytales, and myths the world over describe these elusive creatures. To date, humans have explored less than 10% of the oceans, lakes and seas. This is a world far larger than our own. Obviously unidentified life forms exist in this hidden place, why not seamonsters? The fact that our last name is Seamons didn’t hurt either. As we created the Seamonster Family, liberty was taken in creating the abilities, lifestyle, and social interaction of the underwater community that evolved.
The Seamonster Family of Lake Kampos (Latin for seamonster) consists of Sami, his Mom and Dad, little sister Lizi, and Grandpa Seamonster. Mom, Dad, and Grandpa are the voices of wisdom and reason as Sami and Lizi grow and mature. It is through them that the 8 Virtues, advanced in the SamiTales Character Development program, are taught, and reasoning is modeled.
