- In “The Shadow over Innsmouth,” the chief of a band of Kanakas dwelling on an island in the South Seas, whose inhabitants mate with loathsome sea-creatures and derive great bounties of fish and gold as a result. Walakea has no hybrid blood in him, as he is of a royal line that intermarries only with royal lines on other islands.
