It has a long, narrow beak that points downward at the tip. Its beak is mostly pink with a yellow rim closest to it face. Camel is fairly large, being several times the size of its master, as Kuzan is able to lie on its head and sleep comfortably while it is swimming upright or treading water.

It is seen wearing an extremely large knapsack on its back that, given its size, likely holds all the possessions of Kuzan’s that do not fit in his own.

Personality

Not much is known about its personality, but Camel has been shown to sleep a lot, indicating that it is a lazy super penguin. This is further proven by the fact that Kuzan and Camel are very compatible. According to an SBS, Camel doesn’t like to be called cute.
