A Mercenary Gamble
Lord Captain Jack Flashheart
Who's ready for some thrilling heroics? (a backup option should something unfortunate befall Marlak)
“I had to leave Nelanther, I couldn’t stay after what happened. You didn’t hear? Well, I guess old Redmane would have tried to hush it up. It goes like this: The Dread Pirate Redmane, lord of the isles, had rescued this princess from a bunch of Yuan Ti cultists as were about to sacrifice her, and she fell for him and it was love blah blah blah. But she saw me two days before their wedding, and couldn’t deal with the thought of marrying off without ever having had a go with a man with more wood than a peg leg. Woof!
Go back someday? Are you crazy? The place is a fortress, and it’s not like she was all that pretty! Besides, I’m sure Redmane is still mad about me sailing off in his ship even if he’s got over the other thing.”
Jack Flashheart is a loud and confident man in the prime of his life. If you believe even half what he says, he’s twice as good as anyone else you’ve ever met. Even though you think some of his tall tales might be wearing stilts, he’s an undeniably good swordsman and brave to the point of recklessness.
