He was best known for his enduring friendship with Boo and their playful nature, often silently sneaking up on fellow citizens—sometimes while invisible or wearing the heads of monsters—and then surprising them in a harmless jump scare before dropping flowers at their feet, though not everyone in the tense, high-stakes community appreciated their lighthearted fun.
In later years, Sharkberries practiced a sort of organic architecture that sought harmony between structures and their surroundings, making use of existing landscapes rather than terraforming and integrating his designs with nature so that they appeared to exist as part of the same unified composition.

Lil' Thunder's proximity to Swampwater occasionally drew visitors with bad intentions. They came under attack by local bandits such as Calp0l and Elite, but these skirmishes allowed Shark to hone his skills in battle and unknowingly prepare himself for the violence to come in the Third Era.
|Deztro: for some reason shark and bunny creep the hell out of me.
Deztro: when i'm at spawn they crouch circles around me giving me flowers
Deztro: I'm like man are you already throwing flowers for my funeral or something?
Deztro: feel like I'm bout to be whacked
They founded the town of Leirion in a savanna plain half a kilometer north of Northham. Facing raids by opportunistic bandits, they armored the buildings against intrusion and built a series of interconnected self-contained farms underground to avoid having to spend too much time out in the open. He would eventually welcome Coke and Cherrycola to live and work there.
Though he had deliberately remained neutral in the Northham Wars that raged across the land, Shark was nonetheless forced to fight when Leirion found itself in the crosshairs of the dreaded Dragonslayers led by his old foe Calp0l. Unfortunately, after losing his head to Spud they mounted it as a trophy in their Hall of Shame.
The region remained dangerous even after the Northham Wars ended with the execution of the Dragonslayers and the eternal enslavement of their souls by Grim. Leirion suffered attacks from Elite, Panda, Tohbeh, and others most often drawn in by the verbal antagonism of Cherrycola despite Boo's best attempts at diplomacy.
Shark became an honorary member of the Northham Preservation Society when he helped Boo seed an oak forest north of the city, improving the local ecology and providing newcomers with a safe source of timber in the otherwise barren Northlands.
After Zerg's disappearance, Shark and Boo secured his gargantuan underground stronghold Zerus on 3E:137. Because Zerg had avoided fighting in the Northham Wars by covertly supplying the Dragonslayers, the base was bursting with vast riches untouched by warfare. When he returned a month later, they graciously offered to give the property back but he declined, preferring to start over fresh and allowing them to keep his treasures. Overnight, Shark became one of the wealthiest citizens in Dragonhollow.
When VideoGameDragon ominously announced his Day of Death murder spree to take place on 3E:151, he named Shark as one of only three people who would be spared his wrath because he had been kind to him.
He was a contributor to the Maccadamia project.
On 3E:181, Shark attended the Northham Town Hall Meeting where Eris announced her plans for the coming Fourth Era. Despite previously receiving assurances that Leirion would remain accessible, he learned that the Northlands would be abandoned in favor of a vibrant new land unspoiled by total war.
Visiting Other Worlds
|"you scared the shit out of me boo and shark"|
When Eris made the abrupt decision to turn the planet into a totalitarian dystopia known as Wyvernhollow and usher in a new Dark Age, Sharkberries was dismayed to find that his name was not on the exclusive White List that permitted entry.
|I never really went anywhere with them, but sometimes I would peep on them peeping on other peeps o.O Also I think I took over their claim at the end of summergate and was pretty confused/impressed with their build :D|
He built Cambrid Field along the East Road and the Summergate Railway's East Line. He worked on it as a labor of love throughout the Fourth Era until it was one of the most fascinating places in the region.
He unsuccessfully tried to hatch a dragon egg laid by Moondancer which Sprankles had displayed as a trophy inside the Compound, causing it to teleport somewhere unseen and become lost forever. Shark was remorseful and heavy-hearted with sorrow because Sprankles had been very kind to he and Boo. To make amends, he sent a written apology and gifts as repayment. Tox would later give Sprankles a replacement dragon egg from Vermilion as a present in the Summergate Secret Santa.
He owned a mailbox at the Summergate Post Office.
On 4E:337, Tox took Shark and Boo on an tourist expedition to see some of the region's landmarks and lesser known locations. Despite encountering strange time distortions caused by a resurgent Black Claim, they took the Southwest Road to Villam Maris and Wright's Bridge, then explored the East Road before boarding the Summergate Railway at Whistlestop and making visits to Mos Aurum and Bearcote Key before ending the night atop Tarsonis.
In his unannounced absence, Cambrid Field was raided by scavengers after the magical seals provided by the golden shovel failed. Retro secured the property to prevent further vandalism. Through Boo, Shark was able to open a channel of communication with him and regain control of the residence.
After the first assault on the Ender Trinity deep within the Hollow failed, Shark joined the second hunting party to fight the dragon trio on 4E:399. He served a vital support role despite being killed by Ymir several times. When Boo struck down Night Fury, Shark claimed her egg as a prize which he christened “Philip.” Having learned from past mistakes, he kept it secure and out of sight in his ender chest.
During the Fall of Summer, the magic seals imbued by the golden shovel failed and the protections for Cambrid Field evaporated. On 4E:412, bandits pillaged the area and destroyed it with high explosives.
|Boo: Can we come visit? :D
Tox: I'm at your place! :D
Tox: here, have a dragon head
Sharkberries: Thank you!
Tox: do you have a lever?
Sharkberries: i have some
Tox: put it next to the dragon head, then turn the lever on
Tox: it'll flap its jaw like it's talking :D
—Sharkberries meets his first talking dragon
He was inducted into the Dragonkin by Eris. As they were in competing Dragon Clans, rather than be forced to go separate ways through their corresponding Dragon Gates, Shark and Boo chose to travel through the All Clans Gate and make their way into the new land together.
They settled in Freetown, a neutral community that welcomed residents regardless of clan affiliation. There, they built Arcadia, a breathtaking estate in the mountains nestled between Community Tower and Heartreach.
He had a mailbox at the Wyvern Pointe Post Office.
On 5E:103, Shark embarked on a several day journey of exploration with Boo and Tox. Starting at Freetown, they went east across the ocean to the Roach Motel and Clay Canyon before following Hyperion's network of Space Needles north to Jinxion. Later they took Sanctuary's Frostburn Gate to reach the second All Clans Gate by way of Wyvern Pointe. They visited points of interest in Outer Pandora, including Norwich, the Spidey Dungeon, and Shady Thicket before ending the expedition at Rain House.
Shark produced a series of three artworks depicting each of the Dragon Clans.
In cooperation with their fellow residents, Shark and Boo developed Freetown into the most vibrant and active community in all of Pandora.
He expressed interest in participating in the Clan Olympics that were to be hosted by Jinx, but the sporting event was canceled when Eris opened Pandora's Box on 5E:319. In the ensuing chaos, raiders from the Zaeric imperium ransacked Arcadia before it was devastated by the disintegration wave emanating from the Box itself.
Sharkberries: How are you doing?
Alec: I am doing well how about you
Sharkberries: Pretty good, building bridges
Retro: what kind of bridge you making?
Tox: perhaps it's a metaphor for strengthening the bonds between members of our fair community
Sharkberries: nah just a lil bridge
Tox don't I look silly now
Sharkberries arrived in Hardship on 6E:1 but too late to be considered a Hallowmere Pioneer. Like many residents, Shark found life in Hallowmere rather tedious and unrewarding, choosing to limit his time there.
With supplies and building materials too tedious and dangerous to gather, he and Boo chose not to construct their own dwelling and instead relied on squatting in empty structures and scavenging whatever they could find. They secured a skeleton spawner from a cave base that once belonged to Reia.
When Eris named Retro as her Hegemon and personal representative in Dragonhollow, Shark was cautiously optimistic about the future but he chose not to take a side in the Retrolution uprising against his rule.
He spent less and less time in-world and was last seen in Hallowmere on 6E:111.
|Retro: we're actually a few hours away from a new map :P
Sharkberries: I know, me and boo are gonna be involved
Tox: missed seeing you guys around, looking forward to it
Sharkberries: weve kept up to date in the back
—Sharkberries ready for the Hammerlands
He had a tomb in the Hammerlea Catacombs.
Some years after the planet vanished from existence, Shark began work on a collection of comics that would chronicle the creation and extensive history of Dragonhollow.
|Lex: Sorry exploring sharks place right now
Lex: Its really fucking cool
Sleekit: tiz awsome
Alec: It rly is
Sharkberries: thanks guys
—Sharkberries gets high praise
He began an ambitious effort to renew interest in Halfast and grow the community, beginning with word-of-mouth efforts via Discord and the construction of the Camillia city-state, which would eventually became the planetary capital.
Impressed with his work, he was made an Arbiter of Halfast and entrusted by HyperSilence with the bulk of the design work for the Fish Bowl and the Dueling Arenas. He was also responsible for constructing the lighter-than-air transports Arctic Air and Jungle Jaunt.
