The Eels or Children of the Eel are a tribe in eastern England, south of Harwich, and those who have become Blood brothers and sisters with the tribe.

The Eels; Daisy, Dum and Dee are based on Gillian (Jill), Michael and John, the three Busk children. Dum and Dee are bigger than Daisy, but she is in command; Dum is bigger than Dee, and they're not twins.

An Eels' wind is a fair wind for the Eels' plans of the moment, for example the breeze that allowed six boats to explore the Mango Islands (SW21).
