Character Bio

Sebastian photo
Sebastian is a red Jamaican crab and a servant of King Triton. The character was developed solely for the film, and is not derived from the original Hans Christian Andersen story. Early on in the writing and development of The Little Mermaid, the character that would later become Sebastian was originally an English-butler crab named Clarence. Sebastian is also announced as the "royal court composer", his full name being "Horatio Pelonius Ignatius Crustaceus Sebastian".

Sebastian is shown as being a good friend of Ariel and Flounder. He is sometimes strict and often critical of Ariel's adventurous ways, but often ends up going on her adventures with her. Throughout the series, Sebastian's character is further developed via dialogue and entire episodes dedicated to him. Sebastian has a rivalry with a crab named Zeus, and they both try to one-up the other. Sebastian says he was born in Jamaica and went to Music Academy in Trinidad prior to joining King Triton's staff as his assistant, he also reveals he had the stage name "Dizzy Crustace" (krust-AY-she).
Sebastian is initially shown as a strict enforcer of King Triton's rules that all music has been banned from Atlantica, Sebastian has been secretly performing music as the leader of The Catfish Club Band, which performs in an underground club. When the underground club is revealed to Triton, Sebastian and his band are put in jail, but they manage to escape with Ariel's help. As part of a premeditated plan, Sebastian leads them far away from Atlantica to a specific spot where Ariel finds her mother's discarded music box. Sebastian wants music to return to Atlantica so Triton can regain his happiness, and he returns with Ariel to convince Triton to change his mind. When the film ends, music is restored to Atlantica, and Sebastian becomes the "royal court composer".
