Proposed Canon

First Appearance: Book5 Prologue 14

Scottilus is an ancient Dread Naughtilus, a humongous aquatic nautilus-like creature possibly as old as Erfworld itself (remembers vaguely last 50,000 turns, but thinks he's much older than that). While he does not speaks language, he is sapient and capable of communicating via a special form of Signamancy that works via contact.

He was at one point tamed and still has a vehicle attached to him from that time (The Naughtilus Machine), but is currently fully feral and doesn't want to be tamed. If he was tamed, that side would have to pay a huge upkeep.

Scott travels by means of siphoning and spurting out great masses of seawater and can reach speed much higher than any sailing ships.

Speculation

Given his age, and that he is the only known member of his kind, he may well have been created directly by the Titans.
