The Barkeep


“Grizzled and scarred, this brutish specimen bears his orcish heritage openly. His skin is the color of slate, etched with old wounds and rippling his muscle. His hair is jet black, falls to his shoulders and hasn’t seen soap or suds in too long to count. Dressed in the tattered clothing of a dockside meathook, he carries a strange saber to one side and a simply buckler across his back. Never is this half-orc thug far from his elven companion and the two of them share a glint in their eye that suggests a bond deeper than brotherhood.”

Little is known about the history or origins of the half-orc brute known as Hakari. Hired at the Broken Yardarm in Port Panthera, Hakari is cunning, circumspect and cruel, preferring cutthroat methods to achieve his ends. He shares a brotherly bond with Deadrick, an elven brigand, and the pair are always pulling schemes and ploys to make a quick coin here and there. He’s currently caught in a love triangle between Yu, his current paramour, and Woodward, the ship’s wizard and, for the moment, Hakari appears to be playing both sides.

In the meantime, Hakari has started to operate a little business aboard, running a makeshift tavern on the extradimensional deck that he calls the Misty Maiden. With a few whores and a bartender under his employ, he turns a small profit and has an eye to expand his business. Now the boatswain aboard the Dragon Turtle, Hakari still prefers to shirk work whenever possible, typically in favor of some new scheme – stealing his comrade’s jewelry, keeping captive drownies aboard, learning to read or rallying his orcish brethren to rise up against their frost giant captors.

By the campaign’s end, Hakari used his share of the treasure to purchase an island and establish an orcish colony, where the freed slaves could gather and establish their own society, and then went adventuring with Yu, Deadrick and Woodward.
