Typical Dialogue:


Parniel was born somewhere on western cost of Anuire and served as sailor in fleets of Boeruine and Talinie. His vile nature led him into many conflicts with the law in these lands, so he fled north to Dhoesone and the Taelshore. While serving on some merchant ship near Halskapa, Parniel organized a mutiny and declared himself captain of the ship.
This began his career in these waters as a skilled mariner and adept pirate. His activities attracted attention of pirate king Fulgar the Bold who considered those waters his own. Parniel had to flee further north with his ship and crew.
His search for booty led him to the busiest sea in the world, the Krakennauricht. At that time, Grabentod was the growing power in the region and its ships preyed on every vessel that sailed the Great Bay, so Parniel choose it as his new home. His bold moves and ruthless tactics brought him to the attention of another pirate king, Albrecht Graben. Albrecht, a cruel pirate himself, liked Parniel and called him into his service. Parniel received a letter of marque, and thus became a privateer in the service of Grabentod.
His main task was to prey on Müdenite merchant vessels, and to harass the Royal Navy of Müden. For his successes, he was rewarded with a strong roundship and a crew of experienced mariners. Word of his adventures spread through Grabentod and the Great Bay like fire. In the year when the Royal Navy of Müden and its allies crushed the Graben fleet and captured king Albrecht, Parniel rallied part of the fleet and returned home. He was declared Admiral of the Grabenflotte for his deeds.
One of the biggest turning points in Parniel's life was couple years ago when a minor awnshegh attacked his ship somewhere north of Drachenaur Mountains. The brave captain managed to slay it and thus gained a strong Azrai bloodline.
As of 1524 HC, King Albrecht remains in Mudenite custody, and Parniel is rumored to be building power at home to seize that throne for himself.
