It feels good to work with dirt, doesn't it? Some people call it work, but they don't understand.

Croatoa is a tribal and one of the inhabitants of Point Lookout in 2277.


This rather simple man has a specially modified shovel he does not just give out to anybody. Croatoa believes in reaching high planes of existence through the power of Punga.[Non-canon 1][clarification needed]

Daily schedule

He can be found wandering inside the outer walls of the Ark & Dove cathedral, oftentimes tending to the punga.
