Muse of the poets (ancestor)
In Rayman 3
Before the Hoodlums invaded, the Nookins lived happily, tucked underground near the volcanic core. Unfortunately, this was the perfect place for a Hoodlum factory, and the Nookins soon found themselves, and their treasured ukuleles, kicked to the curb.
Originally from the location of the Hoodlum Headquarters, they were chased from their homes as the Hoodlums built their factory. In the game, they are only encountered inside cages in the Tower of the Leptys.
The way they talk is similar to the way stereotypical Jamaicans speak, usually adding 'mon' on the end of their phrases, such as 'I have to go finish inventing chocolate toothpaste, mon'.

They wear some straw clothes, instead of those made of leaves in the console version of Rayman 3.
