~ Bugia's Marketplace ~
once they arrived on land, Fred wished Chad good luck and told him to go to Bugia’s marketplace. Fred said, “Creatures from all walks of Bugia attend the marketplace. Beetle people are friendly, and you’ll meet someone who can help you find your brother.”
When Chad made it to the marketplace, he observed in awe as hundreds of the bug-like creatures were walking around and talking just like people do. Chad stuck out like a sore thumb, and the Beetle People were interested in his story. Once it was clear that Chad was in search of the Pig Mammoths, the Beetle People informed him that they reside in a palace deep into the heart of Bugia.
Chad learned that the Pig Mammoths collect double basses because they detest the low notes of this musical instrument. If someone plays a bass within the vicinity of a Pig Mammoth, they will fall to the ground clutching their pig ears in agony.
After learning all about the Pig Mammoths, Chad met Major Dee, the marching millipede. She had an upright torso dressed in a soldier’s uniform which sagged with metals, and the rest of her millipede-like body stretched on as far as Chad could see. Major Dee knew Bugia inside and out, and this new mission to rescue Chad’s brother gave her a renewed sense of purpose in her life.
