With The Krakens
Not much is said about Mum-O-Killowe's performance throughout his rookie season. Mum-O-Killowe is mostly used as a threatening example of Quentin's alien teammates especially considering Mum-O-Killowe's wish to cripple Quentin at the start of the season.

He is described as being over twelve-feet long with a tube-shaped body bent upwards in the middle giving Mum-O-Killowe's body a six-foot horizontal and a six-foot vertical torso. Bright orange skin covered with small reddish-brown enamel covers his body. It is estimated that Mum-O-Killowe weighs approximately 580 lbs and can bench press over 1200 lbs.
From the very beginning of Mum-O-Killowe's tenure on the Ionath Krakens he has described his wish to cripple Quentin Barnes. Eventually, he and Barnes do come to a working relationship, but this does not decrease Mum-O-Killowe's ferocious and killer nature.
