The Sea of Shadows
A man with keen eyes and a peculiar friend
“Isn’t it illegal? Mate, pretty much everything I do is illegal.”
Caden is a man in his 30’s. He has dark messy hair that never passes navy regulations and eyes with silvery irises that gleam in the dark but lack pupils.
One Unique Thing:
Born at the exact moment the world changed. The mystical energies that plunged the world in the strange new realm affected Caden’s birth giving him extraordinary abilities. Even though in the new world there are many strange people and creatures, Caden is always an outsider as people tend to feel a certain unease around him.
The circumstances of Caden’s birth and the resulting effects on him have branded him an outcast. Most people tend to feel a certain unease around him whether because of his strange eyes or something more undefinable. Because of people’s distrust Caden has had to learn to get by in life using the means available to him. Some of them less scrupulous than others. On a ship he feels much more at home because there his heritage doesn’t matter. On a ship everyone has heard the call. On a ship everyone is family. Caden’s keen senses and light step have made him an excellent scout and a lookout which is a job that suits him well. He can spend hours gazing at the horizon and breathing the ocean air.
Caden has befriended an ancient púca, called Lugos, who talks with him often. It is a mischievous spirit that appears as a half man, half goat. It stands on two legs that look like those of a goat’s and has the upper body of a man. He has spiraling horns on his head but his face looks quite human. He wears a fine jacket and a golden pocket watch. Nobody else is able to see or hear this creature but that doesn’t seem to bother Caden at all. In any case if they can’t see it, how can they say it doesn’t exist?
