Sea Company - Occupational Force: First Mate
The First Mate has no real defining characteristics except for a penchant for Navy Turtleneck wool jumpers and a missing claw on his left hand. He keeps a bandage wrapped around the claw and refuses to have it repaired for some reason unknown. Some say it’s so he never forgets the injury and to seek revenge for it. Rumour has it the wound was inflicted by the Sea Captain’s miniature Berserker but reports of the incident vary and neither party will speak of it.
The First Mate is clean, proper and lives by the rules. His position within the crew is as second in command to the Sea Captain. He is also the self-appointed spokesperson on the rules of the HiiRagi Sea Company Manual and operates strictly within its guidelines. First Mate becomes distressed and frustrated when the Sea Captain ignores his references to the manual. This inability to loosen control of a situation and indeed ‘ignore the rules’ leads to conflict with the Sea Captain. Despite this, their relationship is one of mutual begrudging respect, well, most of the time…
He is reigning champion of the annual HiiRagi Sea Company Manual Quiz for the past 5 years.
