Former Captain of the Dragon Turtle
“As he comes striding across the boards, this scrawny halfling figure somehow puts you in mind of a potent pirate captain, able to lead men into action and steer his vessel through dangerous waters. Dressed in common cotton, striking striped pants and a dashing leather greatcoat, his black hair falling in dreadlocks, the Captain seems perpetually to wear a craggy scowl upon his face, always squinting off at something far away. A pair of flintlock pistols adorn his belt and a basket-hilted rapier rides his hip. The hat, however, is the true masterpiece – ostentatiously enormous, artfully tattered here and there and capped by a gigantic feather.”
A pirate upon the seas, man and boy, Inio was bequeathed his precious spyglass by a former Captain before he and his siblings commandeered the Hurricane out from underneath Captain Rotgut in Ankledeep. Pursuing a great and mysterious treasure far to the west, Inio has lost much – his family, his ship and his dignity – in the hunt for the Sistren’s lost treasure. A schemer and conniver at heart, Inio has that heart set on acquiring that treasure, the consequences be damned.
When Captain of the Dragon Turtle, Inio and his crew sought a means to recover the treasure, despite all the obstacles – ghost ships, pirate republics and sea monsters – that stand in their way.
While crossing the Ilisan Sea, Captain Inio disappeared from his cabin. Returned two weeks later, the captain was much changed. Claiming to have been abducted by the forces of hell, he began muttering to himself, becoming confused on deck and occasionally taking great risks – seemingly for the hell of it. He now stands upon the brink of a mutiny, his captaincy challenged and his officers turned against him. Defeated in a duel by Fakira az-Yassin ibbin-Nuritt and his captaincy claimed, Inio’s death was faked and tossed overboard.
When next he appeared, Inio wormed his way into command of a tribe of gnomes on the treasure island of Tog. Promising to show the pirates to the treasure in exchange for his captaincy, Inio accompanied on their quest for the treasure, with nothing but murder and mistrust between him and the dragonborn siblings.
