An old boat captain that adopted Bwana and Kito after they attempted to rob his house. Has been missing for a long time when Episode 1 begins.
  • Disappeared Dad: Kaonandodo vanished ten years before the start of the game, for reasons unknown. Lina finds him in the Underland in Episode 3, and he ends up piloting one of the Sisulu Pirates' fighter planes straight up a mine shaft to St. Armando. He reunited with his sons, and they all fly off to a happy ending.

A fisherman with a fear of rats.

The chef of the yacht where Bwana obtains new engines for his plane.

  • The Power of Rock: His song ends up being the trigger to detonate the charges planted in the Armando Power Company tower. Since the tape is busted, Waasi has to get his mojo back and play again. He slides down the side of the skyscraper, rocking his heart out, while explosions are going off behind him, with the band's truck sliding behind him with their giant speakers blaring for all to hear. The song ends to a cheering crowd.
