All of the characters are... characters, except the Canoe, which is, you know, a canoe. Why doesn't it say "Canoer"?

Good point, but the word you're looking for is canoeist, not canoer.

I guess, it is all just to make it simple. Also, the other characters have no "tool" that is helpful, but personal talents or abilities, so it is rather the person, than the tool to be mentioned there.

As far as I can tell, plenty of people on the interwebs seem to think canoer is a word....


This is definitely going to lead to many jokes about Mr. Canoe's personality and hygiene....
