Appearance and Personality
”Imagine him as the answer to the question: "What if that gunk from your shower drain were to come to life?"—Hoid about the Captain
The Captain is tan with matted hair and bad breath. He thinks highly of himself, but does not seem to realize that others do not share this opinion.
The Captain of the Oot's Dream was a smuggler who had forged mercantile writs from the Verdant King in order to buy and sell goods without paying tariffs. When he picked up a shipment of Brick's ale from Diggen's Point, Tress disguised herself as a royal inspector and demanded passage on the Oot's Dream to report to the king. Thinking that Tress was trying to expose their smuggling operation, the Captain ordered for her to be poisoned and locked in the ship's brig. When the Crow's Song attacked the Oot's Dream, the Captain allowed Dorp to use Tress to try to stop the attack. The Crow's Song did not stop and the Captain of the Oot's Dream was killed along with his crew.
