Sea Company - Occupational Force: Sailor
Sailor is a bit of a haunted character, he began his career as a Diver but an unfortunate diving incident saw him get the ‘bends’ resulting in a shrunken, bendy back leg. Despite rehabilitation he made the difficult choice to give up diving and become a Sailor. There have been many attempts to get him back into the ocean but Sailor is adamant that he will never dive again, which is very sad as diving was one of his great loves.
Under Gunner’s authority, Sailor is responsible for the vessel as a whole in a variety of responsibilities such as navigating, maintenance, examining and securing the mooring lines, and general cleaning of the decks and the routine maintenance. He looks very dashing in his skivvy and sailors top. He’s supposed to wear a fancy sailor’s cap that he hates but it always seems to be lost. Seems like there might be a bit of a fight left in him somewhere…
