(Japanese: ショール Shoal) is a character of the day who appeared in Cilan and the Case of the Purrloin Witness!.
Shoal is a business man and a jewel collector, who first came up to Ripple's room in a ship cruise and asked her to sell him a rare jewel in her possession, called the "Eye of Liepard". Even though Ripple rejected his offer, Shoal still kept interest in the jewel, which caused Ripple's Watchog, the caretaker of the room, to get angry and expulse him out of the place.
He took advantage of a power outage caused by a battle during the Marine Cup Tournament held on the ship. Shoal used his Roselia to put Ripple's Watchog asleep so he could enter the room to take another look at the jewel. When the power was restored, Ripple and Porter found a shocked Shoal inside the room, claiming that the Eye of Liepard was nowhere to be found.
After recovering of her fainting, Ripple immediately suspected Shoal was the thief, so the Captain of the cruise interrogated him, and Shoal desperately insisted that he was not guilty. With the help of Ripple's Purrloin and Cilan, his constant claims of innocence were proven true, due to the real criminal being Teaque, who managed to steal the jewel just before Shoal entered the room. After Current arrested the thief, Ripple came to good terms with him, and he decided not to insist on buying the Eye of Liepard.
