Hoban is the navigator of the Cyodrake's Gaze, causing a fuss all over Neopia when he went missing in the Cyodrake's Gaze plot. In the end, when he was finally found, it was discovered that the ship's chef, Bonju, had pushed him off the ship in a sudden fit of rage. In his spare time, he researches at the Lunar Temple.
Yeah, let's see you laugh when I sail you into a storm.
You're lucky I'm the only one who walked out!
You're kidding, right?
As a navigator, I'm actually an expert at this game. What? You think you can do better than me? Why you little-- fine! It's on. Go ahead and try to beat my score. Just don't come whining to me when you fail miserably.
You're not planning to throw me overboard or anything, right? Okay. Good. In that case, I see a bright future for us, in which I tell you about my supreme skills as a navigator, and you listen closely so you can learn from a master.
Just navigate through the storm, they said. You're such a great navigator, they said. Even the best navigator needs to see the stars, and do you know what storms do? They hide the stars. And now we're lost, just like I said we would be.
