Theridon Returned

The Captain's Ghost

Description:

Died at the hands of a Priestess of Vecna while trying to prevent Dukagsh’s bid for full ascension to Godhood. Kaolin and Finn maintain faith, in spite of the evidence, that he is out there somewhere and can be rescued.

After being drummed out of the Seven Stars Etsuriko decided that her path to redemption lay in finding him and either bringing him back or setting his spirit to rest.

He has appeared several times as a lost spirit, confined to the Prime until he makes up for his part in setting the Illithid Overmind in motion.

Bio:

Raised in a poor family in the Free City of Greyhawk on Oerth he saw his family brutally murdered before his eyes for supposed witchcraft. He fled to the city of Chendl, Capital City of the Kingdom of Furyondy ,with the aid of Geron, one of the city guard who was filled with remorse for his part in the executions.

He spent his time living well away from the city proper although he was drawn there frequently by the opposite sex. After a number of fleeting liasons he fathered a daughter. Shortly after her birth the mother died in the collapse of a building that was under construction. A former lover, Jarinda, took charge of the infant and is raising it in the brothel in which she works.

Falsely accused of theft from a major lord he was imprisoned for three years at the mines. During his incarceration he befriended both Zachariah, a medium ranking member of the Chendl Thieves Guild and K’Tharr-Defender, a Kzinti mercenary commander who had run afoul of the Duchy’s corruption. Shortly after their release, and prior to a planned meeting about a “profitable venture,” K’Tharr-Defender vanished. Rumor had it that he left suddenly on a Spelljamming ship, although reports are confused on whether he left willingly or not….

Seeking more positive info on his friend (K’Tharr-Defender had saved his life in the mines), he befriended a local mage named Socath who arranged passage on a Spelljamming ship for him. Shortly out of port they were taken by the Neogi……

Pursuing readings on strategy (land and spelljamming) having developed a respect for K’Tharr-Defender’s protestations of it’s importance.
“Knowledge is power, reading is the key to knowledge,” Zachariah
