the man behind the hat
The Captain of the Dragonnesmeade until it ran aground.
The Captain is thankful to the PC’s not only for rescuing him from a nasty plant monster, but also for keeping his secret (ie: he is not the muscled, handsome swordsman everyone thinks is Captain Dalesh. He merely uses a weakminded sailor as a puppet, to better protect himself.) While not brave, he certainly is not a coward. He’d be the first to tell you that preserving himself is vital to protecting Imperial interest, and as one of the rare users of “mental magic”, he may be right. He makes a powerful but mysterious ally.
