The Havak within
Havak laughs heartily as he slams his mug to the makeshift bar in the underneath of the ship. The crew member who had challenged him to the drink contest slamming to the ground soon after his mug.
"Better luck next time lad." Havak laughed through his whiskey and ale soaked beard. His hand grabbing the gem he had just gained from the ghouls and the crew members coin purse as he drunkenly raises from the bar. Stumbling he makes his way topside as he tucks his winnings into his armor. Once on the top of the ship he hazily looks around for a secluded area and finding one he sits down. Sighing he runs his gloved hand through his beard and licks the remnants of alcohol off of his fingers.
"I have ta figure out how ta get that little shite his coin purse back without him knowin I did it." Havak says to himself through a burp. He shakes his head half to wake himself back up and half in disappointment. Havak had always been pretty uncouth and a bit of a trouble maker but ever since he had woken up in the asylum he had felt different. He still had a wild streak about him but most of his other actions had been mostly an act.He sighed again as he thought about his inability to protect the little grippli from the ghouls.
"At least I protected my brother." He said out loud to himself as his gloved hand traces the spikes on his armor. Protecting his foster brother had always been important to him but now he felt responsible for the rest of the members of the party. The conflict within him now though was to keep up appearances while trying his best to be a protector. At that moment Pace and Samuel appear on deck walking towards Havak's position. Havak sighed again standing.
"You two lovers out on a midnight stroll?"

The Crew of the Sellen Starling
Loyal, outgoing, and honest, Skywin Freeling is the captain of the keelboat the Sellen Starling. Her checkered past as a revolutionary and pirate seems behind her now as she plies the waters of the Sellen Passage, but Skywin remains ready to leap to the defense of the downtrodden or needy. Outgoing, outspoken, and honest to a fault, Skywin is so unfailingly good-hearted that her friends agree she is all bark and no bite. Though muscular, she stands barely 3 feet tall. Her large eyes are a deep blue that contrasts with her tawny skin. She keeps her curly mass of auburn hair in a messy bun at the back of her head, and her clothing is utilitarian, usually consisting of a brown tunic and leggings under a chain shirt. The ever-present buckler on her left arm and the rapier sheathed at her waist indicate her readiness to leap into melee if necessary.

As sailors are often named for what they do, Adrien Scrimshander is a scrimshaw expert. Almost every minute of his free time, the big man can be found sitting on a little crate whittling wonders out of fish bones. One would think that person with such a fearsome mien would have a more violent hobby, but he is more than content with his favorite past time. He dreams to one day make a masterpiece out of a whale bone if he can ever get to the open seas, and the others jest that they would pay his weight in gold to see him reel one in with his bare hands.

Baragus "Rags" Harangue is a middle-aged veteran that keeps a slovenly appearance, but is surprisingly well-spoken and well-mannered. Uncomfortable with the restrictiveness of armor, he prefers to go into battle bare-chested, but considering he survived thus far he clearly must be doing something right.

Ciprian Manalapin is a young man of mixed Taldan and Tian descent, this upstart from Absalom seems to be excited about everything he sees and does. His unbridled enthusiasm is commendable, albeit annoying, but at least he keeps spirits up on long voyages. If he could only lose the lisp, on top of his accent, maybe he'd be more likable.

Dark of skin and hair, Corbin Dio's ridiculous mustache has earned an eponymous name; some of the other crew members have tried to grow "The Dio" just to see if they can match its complicated swirls, but all have miserably failed. There have been some rumors that he uses some special alchemical tincture to keep it all together, be he has categorically denied that claim. He is bald except for that curly-cue mustache that he loves so much.

The artist known as "Nicky" is an aspiring cartographer. She has a steady hand even in rough waters, and her attention to detail is astonishing. She has a bright future ahead of her, and all aboard believe she will one day be known as one the greatest mapmakers of all time. Behind her back, they call her Finicky is jest because of her careful cautious manner, but they would never let her know that they say such a thing.

Some question his loyalty to the ship. Not because Hortimer Podein hails from Galt, a land where loyalty is another form off currency and often exchanged as such, but because this craft is the eleventh one he's served on. However, no one can doubt his ability to do his duties, and he is a gifted rigger.

Laramie Kidane has been trying to get rid of her nickname, "Dainty", for quite some time now, considering she's a tomboy with an alto voice. Even more to the point, her violent tendencies in combat have served to sway others from poking fun at her, afraid that she will poke them back with more than a rapier wit.

Mister Getis is an old salt, in every way. He talks little, but when he does it's some form of complaint, sarcasm, or otherwise veiled insult. He's limber despite his age, and is still quite an able swab, but don't get on his bad side lest you want find yourself the target of his toothy sneer.

Don't touch Moe's tricorne hat. It belonged to her father (of the same name) who was a Shackles pirate, and an infamous one at that. He even crewed aboard a ship with the Hurricane King himself a few decades back, and died in his service. In fact, almost her entire family line consisted sailors from the Sodden Lands, going back to before the Eye of Abendego was formed. Some of the crew are little put off by the piracy that runs in Moe's blood, but that

Moylan Doyle is the first mate and is a blade bravo who has bested all he has ever faced, in training or the real deal. Constantly seeking to improve, he never hesitates to draw steel, flashing his winning smile along with his blade. He brags to have been trained by and Aldori Swordlord, and even though he doesn't use the preferred weapon of the fencers from Brevoy, his deft hands surely belie that claim.

Skinny Wyatt is a thief. Plain and simple. He can't help himself. It's gotten to the point where daily searches of his person are mandatory, and almost every trinket that has been reported missing has tumbled out of one of his many pockets. Although he seems to feel no remorse, often reacting with a mere shrug in place of an apology, it's clear to the others that he doesn't do it maliciously, or with intent to pawn the items off at their next stop. He just can't keep his damn hands to himself.

Timothy James is a proper Taldan man, he is an anomaly on this vessel. His attire and demeanor befit a larger, more opulent vessel, but for reasons unknown (and probably better left that way) he is decidedly happy serving aboard this one. Of all the others, he talks the most about his family. He laments not being able to spend more time with his wife and daughter, but he is happy that this route will be taking them back to Cassomir where he can see them for the first time this year.

A Case of Missing Persons
"How do you miss someone yain't never met before...?" Ivy wondered as she looked at the words written on the letter addressed to her. Found in the dusty, unused bedroom, furniture set for a child, it detailed the forlorn misgivings of a woman Ivy could not remember, yet could feel plain as day. In that moment, like never before, it pained her that she couldn't read the words of the letter herself. The professor Samuel Dargent had had to read it to her, which only made the hound-woman all the more self-conscious. But it was better that the group know what was on her mind, so she could confide in them just as she would wish them to confide in her.

"She says she ain't never met me before, but these are awful purdy words for someone who ain't never touched someone! I don't know what to think... I ain't one fer gettin high n mighty, even if muh ma n pa mightabeen see-less-teals, so it makes me feel real bad that she thinks she's not good enough fer me... I... I wanna help her. She had her memories taken away too and she sounds like she feels Lowls got some explaining to do too. Maybe, just maybe, someone who can admit they're evil, or that they've done evil things before but can't anymore, is on the first step to re-deemin themselves?"

"I dunno. This here Risi person sounds like she could be good... she just needs some help is all. And sometimes? Doing the right thing ain't just swinging a sword or nocking an arrow. Sometimes, doing the right thing is being there for someone when they need you most. She says she ain't never met me before but she soundin' awful fah-milure. And if what Pace's friend said is true, then we worked together n she jess don't 'member it, just like I don't remember it. I don't know. The story ain't really none too clear. But I hope we meet again. I hope she'll listen to me. And I hope Erastil will give me the right words to say, to show she could be on our side too, if only she'd wish it. It sounds like she could use a friend, and I wanna try to be that friend for her."
