Description and Personality:

At 6'1" tall, Maddilith (Maddy to her friends) is an awe-inspiring woman. She has green eyes, fiery red hair, and a temper to match. She is stern and commanding; on ship her word is law. When on shore leave, she lets her hair down a bit and can get as rambunctious as any of the sailors under her command; been known to drink a few of them under the table and carry them back to the ship too. Don't ever think that this letting loose is a sign of weakness, for the hot-tempered Captain of the Windsister smolders just beneath the surface, and can explode violently out of the depths with just as word or a glance.


Parents: Both are dead; mother (Lady Luigina Ermelinda of Gwynned) died in child birth, and father (Drake Mer-Dane) was murdered by treacherous first mate. Maddy remembers very little about her mother, but idolized her father.

Siblings: Maddy is an only child

Family Status: The Mer-Dane family is an established family of Northern Ergoth. They are respected and trusted members of the community.

Enemies: Fausto Patrizio, former first mate of the Silver Master's Fortune, now turned white dragonspawn soldier of Gellidius. She is actively wanted by the White Dragon Overlord, Frost, who sends his forces out to capture her, so he can torture her and kill her for all the trouble she has caused him.

Allies: Maddy is a member of the Legion of Steel. She has close ties to Emi Shizuka, her mentor in the Legion of Steel and personally knows ten other members of that organization. The Legion can provide her with weapons, armor, equipment, safe houses, etc. if needed.

Companions: Maddy has taken on an apprentice for the Legion and is working to complete her training in the Legacy.
