Maryland is not the safest place for a crab to be, but that’s where Sebastian is going to end up. Don’t worry, he won’t get boiled and eaten. But he’ll have to be on the run from every chef in the state. With the help of Flounder, Scuttle, King Triton, and Ariel, he can enjoy his time at the beach and eat as much food as he can get from the sea.
Although, by being King Triton’s secondhand man, he could definitely fend for himself and maybe even end up in a position of leadership in government. I could definitely see him as the assistant to someone powerful, doing a congressperson’s dirty work behind the scenes. It’d be like Scandal: Maryland Edition. Hopefully, Sebastian would have a bit more ethics and not rig an election or anything. He’s definitely a little more lax in the rule department compared to King Triton.
But besides trying not to be eaten — come on, Maryland, you can save one crab — and helping to run the state, Sebastian’s personality is also a good representation of the state itself. He’s determined, hard working, caring, and at times, even carefree. The same things could be said about The Old Line State.
Sebastian might even bring more music to the state or at least a different kind. Music is one of his biggest passions and he wouldn’t live somewhere without it. Also, there’s got to be all kinds of different music under the sea than we have here, right? As long as he’s safe from harm, Maryland would be the perfect state for this crab.
