Shanty Claws was a werewolf sailor located on the west dock of Musa Point during the 2013 Christmas event.

As the start point of the event, he tasked players with rescuing Jack, Jill, and Jeff from the gublinch. Once the event was completed, he would reward players with a Reindeer hat and a Wintumber tree for their Player-owned house.


  • The name Shanty Claws is a play on the name Santa Claus.
  • When spoken to with a Ring of charos equipped, he would say that he did not expect to see another werewolf there.
  • His name may be a reference to the film The Nightmare Before Christmas, in which Jack Skellington mishears Santa's name as 'Sandy Claws'.
