The Focas is a Seabull, and is very strong and dangerous. He always fights with his wife until she dies, and when he has killed her he casts her out of his place and seeks another, and lives with her very well until he dies, or until his wife overcomes him and kills him. He always stays in one place, and he and his young live by any means they can.
