|Impaled by crimson spores
|Tress of the Emerald Sea
Appearance and Personality
He is bald, though he is not of the age when that might be expected, and has an exceptionally weak chin. His legs seem too large in proportion to his torso, which makes him tall and awkward, especially on land.
Pakson was one of the "Dougs" that first pulled Tress onto the Crow's Song, where he and his sister served as crew members. He checked on Tress periodically after her escape from the Oot's Dream while she clung to a porthole until she fulfilled the fifteen minutes Crow set as the point at which the crew could pull her aboard. He was later killed during their voyage into the Crimson Sea when a wave of crimson spores spilled over the deck and sprouted on contact with someone's vomit. He was impaled by many of the spores, was pinned to the outside of the captain's cabin, and bled out quickly. The crew took him down and cast his corpse into the sea before continuing their voyage. His death discomforted his shipmates, and both Tress and Salay felt personally responsible for his death.
