Pirates Of The Circle Sea: Captain Brakolas Brakkomin

(Note to roleplayers: These characters have no numbers assigned, but I do use various words to denote abilities, skills, etc )

Aksima Vell is not the only successful and charismatic pirate out there. Captain Brakolas Brakkomin, is every bit as famous and is, if anything, even luckier.

Brakolas hails from the northern inland kingdom of Henendover, a large and sparsely populated place. Until the age of 13, Brakolas worked on his family farm and dreamed of going somewhere…anywhere…where he could find adventure. Shortly after his 13th birthday, he hit the road and headed south towards the Crescent Sea, a large inland freshwater sea.

After five years serving with the tiny Royal Navy of Vorastok, he mustered out and joined a merchant ship headed down the Plendras River to Jekreeta and the Circle Sea. On board the merchant ship, he served as Quartermaster. After 4 months, they reached Jekreeta, where Brak left that ship and signed on with the pirate crew of the Wicked Wench. Within 5 years, he was owner and captain of that ship and every ship he has owned since then has borne her name.

Captain Brakkomin is not a particularly bloodthirsty pirate and will often offer the chance for his prey to just surrender. The decision is made easier by fact that the current Wicked Wench sports 64 heavy cannons and a crew largely made up of Dithorans and Muudrinites, who are respectively huge and scary looking. Most merchants give up without a fight and are then relieved of all their valuables and sent along their way. Captain Brakkomin always praises the logical decision and presents the merchant captain with a bottle of Corcoronite wine.

Brakolas Brakkomin is 50 years old, devilishly handsome and in excellent physical shape. He has long blond hair, blue eyes and a small scar on his left cheek. He is 6’6” tall and weighs 280 pounds. In his off time, he enjoys woodcarving, teaching his dog, Lakko, tricks and reading the latest news from around the world.

Brak likes to say that he once seduced Aksima Vell into a weekend of unbridled lust. Oddly, when she tells the same story, it was she who did the seducing. Neither of their crews think that either of them required any seduction.
