A quirky individual whom resembles a pelican and is said to have the ability to transform into a pelican during uncomfortable (awkward) moments. These individuals are said to be descendants of the underwater sea king Tritan and his bird loving wife, Henrietta. "Awkward pelican" individuals can usually be found frequenting sea ports or beach towns, especially on the east coast of the United States. They tend to smell like fish because that's what they eat in the pelican form.
OMG she smells so fishy, she must be an awkward pelican!
