Wuwalleit



Name: Wuwalleit (alias Dread Pirate Webfoot Walt)

Race: Lutran

Appearance: Kinda otter-like, with hints of pirate.

Gender, age: Male, 9 eras as of XXV PF

Starting Location: Coast between Aelyria Prime and Portshire

Wealth tier: Sterling

Background: Wuwalleit grew up in a large lotholt on the coast between Aelyria Prime and Portshire that was largely organized around the trade of marine salvage. He grew up surrounded by exciting stories of sunken and wrecked ships containing treasures both exotic and mundane in their bowels, as well as boring shop-talk about how the lutrans extracted said treasures and got paid their share for retrieving it.

But Dread Pirate Webfoot Walt (as the world would soon come to know him) was destined for more exciting things than pulling treasure out of sunken ships as a salvager, namely: pulling treasure out of sunken ships as a pirate.

The elders of his lotholt encouraged young ones such as Wuwalleit to explore the world and learn new things, even though they were unjustly dubious of his pirating prospects.

He went to Prime and promptly fell in with a dodgy hedge-mage who taught him the basics of Sorcery (teleportation ftw!) in exchange for running certain errands, which usually involved retrieving specific items from other peoples’ houses and then gating back to a hideout without getting caught. It was fun.

But one brightening the hedge-mage got arrested, and nobody else wanted to play the same game after that, so Wuwalleit had to find another line of work (in addition to having to leave town). That was when he realized that his true calling was indeed piracy on the high seas, just as he had always suspected.

Personality:
Wuwalleit wants to be a pirate. Of course, that’s not saying much in itself, because everybody wants to be a pirate. Think of how much fun it would be, and how cool it would look to go around in a pirate hat, peg leg, and a hook for a hand. And a parrot. Gotta have a parrot. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

As one can see, Wuwalleit is rather naďve and fanciful. He is neither especially ambitious nor practical, but rather is drawn to things that seem interesting or fun. Like being a pirate. At least this month.

Wuwalleit is rather mischievous and likes to pull the occasional practical joke. His talent for such pranks is often underappreciated. Especially by their victims. Some people just can’t take a joke.

He is not violent and hates the idea of harming other people. Which is why he wants to be a pirate. That way he can just go around his ship with a parrot on his shoulder saying “argh” all the time without having to hurt anybody.

Skills: Sorcery – 2 x.p. (starter skill)

Lore:
Pirates in popular culture. If there’s a popular book/story/song about pirates, Wuwalleit probably has it memorized. The more romanticized and unrealistic, the better. Think Don Quixote, only with pirates.

Marine salvage. Although Wuwalleit has no practical experience, he knows it’s a thing, and is somewhat familiar with the relevant laws, conventions, and customs associated with the trade by osmosis (see Background.)

Experience earned: (None yet)

Major possessions:

Imperial visa (His lothold is actually pretty picky about such things)

Steel longknife (didn’t have room for a cutlass)

A stone for smashing open seashells. It is flat with one “chopper” edge. It is black with a jolly roger painted in white on one face. Because pirate.

Doesn’t generally own nor wear clothes, although he does really want a pirate hat.

A sling/fanny pack/beltpack thingy that doesn’t get in the way when he’s swimming. Also doesn’t hold nearly as much as a proper backpack.
Some hardtack, dried fruit, and dried fish.

Heirloom: A waterproof scroll tube containing an illuminated map of the Prime coast that Wuwalleit likes to imagine is a treasure map. It may or may not be, but the map itself is beautiful enough to be somewhat valuable.

Hovel: Wuwalleit doesn’t own a hovel, but instead has a berth in a large lothold along the Prime coast. He hasn’t visited it in a while, though.
