Chrysler Peavey is the mayor of the pirate suburb Tunbridge Wheels.
When Peavey's town was eaten by Tunbridge Wheels, he and his pirates took over and turned it into a pirate suburb, and adding customisations such as flotation devices.
When Tom Natsworthy and Hester are taken aboard the suburb, Peavey plans to keep them as slaves. However, he finds out that Tom is a Londoner and asks Tom if he will help Turnbridge Wheels become a respectable town like London, to which Tom agrees after some persuasion from Hester. Peavey plans to have his town eat the town of Airhaven on the Black Island. As Tunbridge Wheels moves towards the black island, the suburb is attacked by Anna Fang in the Jenny Hanvier. However, the Jenny Haniver does only minor damage to Tunbridge Wheels, and the suburb continues on its journey. On its journey the suburb is distracted by fishing boats however, all but one is too quick for Tunbridge Wheels. The one that is chased leads the suburb into a trap; sharp rocks which sink Tunbridge Wheels. Peavey takes a boat with Tom and Hester to the Black Island, still intending to take over Airhaven, however he falls in the mud and drowns. His band of pirates are killed when Shrike arrives.
Peavey harbours a desire to become respectable.
