For the longest time, whenever there was fanart of Ferr, his face is obscured.

* DistantFinale: The end to the Astronauts' first Let's Play of {{Seaman}} had them warping ahead through a few years of in-game time (1,825 days, to be exact) to see what would have become of their two Seamen if they had been left unattended for that long. [[spoiler:Cue [[DespairEventHorizon one of the most depressing things they've ever filmed]]: the sign with the Seaman on it that makes up the title screen is scratched and desolate-looking. There are no Seamen in the tank, no eggs, no nothing. The terrarium which is used for growing moths is similarly bare. Even Creator/LeonardNimoy, narrator of the whole game up to that point no matter what had been happening up to that point, abandoned them, the game apparently having nothing to say to the players after so much time passed with nothing but neglect. Ferr was freaked out enough to start apologizing frantically on the spot.]]
