Scark is a seagull who lived in Hescombe. He was named by Connie, and so was his daughter, Mew. Connie was the only human to understand what he was saying. He often played games with Connie, and right at the beginning of 'Secret of the Sirens', he plays a game with his friends where Connie throws bread crumbs into the air and not a single piece can touch the ground, otherwise she wins. Scark was killed later in the book by Kullervo.
